Vintage-Inspired Chalkboard: Repost from OCB

I bought a bunch of these little chalkboards today for use in my Etsy shop.  Here is the first one I did and truth be told, I like it so much, I'm keeping it for moi!
I used some Distressed Ink to "age" the wood frame.  Then I tied some twine around it and added the coffee-dyed hang tag and French paper.  Finishing touch was some dried flower buds in the middle of the paper scroll.

You can find these soon in my Etsy shop.  For now, this one has found a new home on the ledge dividing my kitchen and diningroom.

Linking up to Between Naps on the Porch: Met Monday.
