I was thrilled when I had the chance to check out Kitchen Supreme's Chalkboard Labels with Liquid Chalk Marker in exchange for my honest review.  I had some ideas floating around in my head to cover  and label a smaller random box that I had laying around and turning it into a cute storage box for all my laundry bags.  I finally had some down time, and rummaged around for some cute contact paper that I had on hand from who knows what crafting project, grabbed some scissors and plopped down in the middle of the living room to create my master piece.  The finishing touch was adding one of the labels.




Writing on the labels took a little bit of practice, but part of that is because I have terrible handwriting.  Really the hardest part was waiting for the liquid chalk to dry before I removed the sticker from the sheet and placed it on the different items I want to label.  The pen took a little bit in finessing the first time around.  You have to push the tip down and make it go up into the pen itself.  There is a little spring to push the tip back down, but this will get the liquid chalk flowing freely into the tip so you can write.



After finishing up my little laundry bag box, I started looking around for more things to label.  I have a white canister set in my kitchen, and decided to label the lids.  I have a tendency to change up what goes into each size, and now it won't be a problem remembering what is in each canister.  The labels are easily cleaned up with a damp cloth or paper towel, and a quick swipe with a dry cloth or paper towel to dry the label and it's ready for more.






I like the tip of the liquid chalk marker.  I have a hall cupboard that is covered with some chalk board contact paper, and wanted to test the marker on that as well.   Ignore my horrible handwriting, but you can see how much thicker and bolder than just a regular stick of chalk.  It is also easy to switch from just using the tip and the broad edge.  The liquid chalk marker has been great for the chore cart that we use this cupboard for.  Even on this contact paper, the liquid chalk marker writes and cleans off easily and quickly.  







I switched from writing on the label while the label is still on the sticker sheet, to placing the label where I want the writing on it. I have zero patience to wait for the liquid chalk to dry before I start rubbing sticker onto different things, and smearing everything I wrote. I was having to wipe down and rewrite the first few items around the house that I tagged with these cure labels. On the plus side, I know that the labels will stay stuck for light wipe downs.  I think my older daughter summed it up perfectly.  These Chalk Board Labels with Liquid Chalk Marker are cool!
