All of my images for this project came from the Cricut Access Image Library.


  1. The first step is to put a new coat of chalkboard paint on the chalkboard if you chose to purchase a used one.
  2. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly.
  3. Then paint the frame of the chalkboard with four thin coats of paint.
  4. Allow this to dry overnight.
  5. Set the design up in the Cricut Design Space then opened the app on your iPad.
  6. Click here for the design template.
  7. Connect the iPad to the Bluetooth connection on the Cricut Explore Air.
  8. Cut the images, switching out the colors of the paper as needed.
  9. Once all the pieces of the design are cut out, glue the ones together that have backs.
  10. Use a glue stick to apply glue to the back of the cutouts then quickly press them onto the chalkboard.
  11. Allow the project to thoroughly dry and display as desired.
