Cave Quest Decorations - Chalk Marker Signs - BorrowedBlessings.net

We used black cardstock paper and chalkboard markers to make fun chalk marker signs for Cave Quest VBS!  These signs will be used throughout the building for directional signs, decorations and even photo booth props!  They are a very inexpensive way to add personalized, colorful decor to your church.  You can also print or save a PDF of the instructions formatted for printing.

SUPPLIES:
Black cardstock {8.5”x11”}
Chalk markers
Laminating sheets
Laminating machine

INSTRUCTIONS:
If you haven’t used chalk markers before, you have to write kind of slowly for them to work well. If they start to dry up, use a piece of scrap black paper and push the tip down a few times.  Write each saying below on one sheet of black cardstock paper.

After the signs are dry, place each one in a laminating sheet and laminate it. This step is optional, but the chalk marker does smear even once dry. If your signs are going to be handled at all or used by more than one group, I’d definitely suggest laminating.  I was told that spraying the signs with sealant or hair spray would keep the chalk from smearing.  I tried that, but mine still smeared.  I laminated all of our signs so we didn’t have to worry about this becoming at issue with small hands on everything!
