a fun little party idea…


Last time I was shopping at Hobby Lobby (which is all the time, let's be honest…) I found some chalkboard paper in an adhesive roll, similar to paper! Kinsey and I thought it would be fun to make removable glass markers for parties. How about that? 


Simply grab a roll of adhesive chalkboard paper, cut a strip, adhere it to your glass and smooth out any wrinkles with your finger. Write guests names on the glasses at your next shower or casual dinner with friends. When it's over you can remove them, and even re-use them! Have fun…. 


xo. elsie & kinsey too! 

  • I need to get to my nearest hobby store and pick up a roll of this! Definitely doing this for my next get together with friends!

  • This is so cute, I love it! So much nicer than the lame Sharpie route I normally take to plastic (yuck) cups. Thanks for the tip!

  • Great idea! I’ve not seen that paper over here, but I’m sure it could be done with spray paint too!

  • I love this idea! It’s perfect for when you and your girlfriends are all drinking the same thing!


  • This is totally random I know…but where did you get that tablecloth? It is the exact combo of colors I am wanting in one! 🙂

  • That’s so awesome! I painted a piece of paper with chalkboard paint to get the same effect, but it was a total pain in the butt (streaks galore!).

  • I want that roll of tape! Great idea.

  • I’m always trying to get people to label their cups with just plain paper and tape but this is such a better idea. Can’t believe I never knew about chalk tape! Wow, seriously thanks!

  • Love this!! Such a great idea, I really want to throw a party now [okay let’s be honest, I always want to throw a party. Haha.]
    thanks for this cool idea!

  • such a great idea – and anyone can do it – thanks for sharing!



  • Another great idea!! I need that chalkboard paper!

  • I love it! So much nicer than the lame Sharpie route I normally take to plastic (yuck) cups. Thanks for the tip!.. I never knew about chalk tape! Wow, seriously thanks!

  • It’s great idea! 🙂 I don’t know anything worse then people looking for their own glass. In the end, everyone has one which wasn’t their.

  • What a great idea!!! I used to use washi tape (for kids parties) but this is even better!! So much fun!

  • Super! Would make the party super fun! xoxo


  • I love this! Such a good alternative to what I was thinking of doing! If only I could find this paper in Delhi! I havent been able to locate chalkboard paint yet 🙁

  • Helen and Kinsey- I’d heard of chalkboard paint, but not of chalkboard paper! Love the idea for parties–I always ignored labeling people’s glasses and then at my husband’s birthday party this year, one of our guests somehow ended up with my glass. I’m definitely trying this next time!

    Helen- Thanks for your comment on my blog. It made my day! 🙂

  • Top tip: It’s easier to write the name on the flat piece of chalkboard paper before you stick it on the glass. It’s hard to write around a cyclinder shape. I know. I tried.

  • so cute…I like this idea alot! I wonder if I can find it at Michael’s

  • that’s such a cute (and simple!) idea, something i will definitely try sometime soon!

  • What a great idea♥
    I will have to look for that tape…we do not have a hobby Lobby where I live but we do have 3 other large craft stores.
    Next trip there, I will look.
    Thanks for sharing.

  • what a wonderful idea!!! gonna do for my mext party for sure!


  • Such a cute idea. I’ll never have to say or hear others say “Uhhh, where’s my drink? is that my drink!?”

  • I love the idea! but might do it on glasses and not jars (for some reason, I cant drink properly out of a jar!!)

  • You actual star – Wedding place names DONE! How does the sticky tape cope with tealights? Could you do an ickle test for me if you can? Pleeease? xxxx

  • I love this idea! I actually have some chalk stickers but I never thought to cut them up and use them like this! I know what I’m doing this weekend!

  • I love this idea….for my kids’ playdates! Yikes, those kids go through soooo many glasses when they are all over here.


  • Any Idea where I can find that adhesive chalkboard paper online??


  • i’ve never seen chalkboard paper like this! adorable. and what a cute idea.


  • oh man, I love this! Gotta get some of that chalkboard tape, but I feel like everything in my house may wind up with a c.b. label! 😉

  • I love this idea! So cute and clever! I think I want to try this for when we host Thanksgiving. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!

    And I too love Hobby Lobby! I could spend way too much time in there.

  • There are always so many new craft products that it is hard to keep up with all that is out there. Thanks for sharing your find and please keep the DIYs coming!!

  • Such a great and creative idea! I will definitely have to remember this for parties!!

  • This is such a neat idea! Thanks! I’m new, well, I’ve been lurking for a little while to be honest, 🙂 I just wanted to say I like your blog and it’s been helping me with so many decorative ideas, and shopping, and such. thanks!

  • Oh, wow! I had no idea there was such thing as adhesive chalkboard paper; so cool!

    Have a fab weekend! ;D


  • I LOVE this stuff! I used it to cover our refrigerator in our vintage motorhome: http://vol25.typepad.com/vol25/2011/08/vintage-motorhome-cute-guest-house.html

  • I found some of this paper at a dollar store (a fantastic find!) and am using it in the same way for my loose-tea jars, i change teas often enough that i get to keep re-writing it!

  • What a great idea!! Can’t wait to try this! 🙂

  • I saw something like this on a wedding blog. The couple put pictures of themselves in mason jars at each table. I love this idea too!!

  • These are so adorable…I cant wait to try it!


  • This is such a great idea! It certainly solves the, “have you seen my glass?” conundrum at parties.

  • That is such a great idea. I would love to use that in my pantry for labeling my jars! Wonderful!

    It’s magical and so so so creative!

    I got good suggestions for my work too,
    thanks for sharing such lovely, inspiring things <3

    I feel lucky today... I found your blog 🙂

  • Such a great idea! I go crazy over anything chalkboard-esque. I might have to go grab some of that for my craft room.

  • Great idea, it’s so annoying to “lost” your glass in a party. Love the idea of recycling the bottles as a glass.

  • aww so cute! wish we had a hobby lobby around here lol but u guess i can just check le craft store

  • OOH LALA!! I really like you blog! 😮 all those cute ideas 🙂 and it’s looking great!

    We have Chalk Ink markers that are non-toxic and not dusty like real chalk and lots of styles of vinyl chalkboards for parties just like Helen’s, getting organized, and even weddings.

  • So adorable! But what happens when the glasses start to sweat? Does the adhesive stay on? Thanks.

  • I love these glasses. where you get them? I can`t find these glasses and would be glad if you tell me where you have it.
    thanks. and by the way I love your blog 🙂
    greetings from germany.

  • Pulling the all-nighter…. You sense that you’ve beaten the machine, tricked modern society, and challenged Nature. Your inbreed clock might be a bit perplexed, your mind a bit groggy, your eyes slightly baggy, but your mind a tiny bit accomplished! Not everyone can do it, after-all. That’s a person less finger you’re allowed keep up in the game of Do not have I Ever. “I JUST SIMPLY PULLED A GREAT ALL-NIGHTER! ” You will want to scream the following out the car window nevertheless hopefully you won’t be driving in this condition. Yes, your entire body will eventually go into REM rebound after you allow your mind to fall into a pillow, but until then, embrace a person’s zombie-like state. The experiencing doesn’t come usually, and you actually lose it quite rapid, so have fun with this while the item lasts since everything about this is AMAZING. That web site you employed to regularly visit that you haven’t attended in a little while. Nothing like forgetting “1000 magnificent things” (or other fav site), because life have been keeping anyone too filled to search for joy, and then ever coming back to see the content posted the very last couple of weeks, and getting a backstock of their bacony corny garlicy awesomeness all at one time. well from the end result of that tutorial, i appeared to be totally stoked bc it looked rather easy until when i started looking through his entirely nonsensical explantion.. by far the most poorly described one ive discover thus much… be far more specific so you wont have numerous dumbfounded posts about it!!
