Red Postbox (by Magda) - Vintage Postbox

I like to experiment and thought it would be interesting for me to see the result of transforming a school blackboard into a Christmas decoration.

Here for you the result of this project :

  1. Clean a school blackboard and wipe it with the Magic Anti-Static Bag
  2. Stamp on the blackboard the new stamp Vintage Postbox Single Rubber Stamp  with Versamark and emboss with Wow Embossing Powder Clear Gloss
  3. Colour the postbox with Distress Paint -  Fired Brick  several times till you are happy with the colour 
  4. Colour the fence with Distress Paint - Walnut Stain
  5. Put some Distress Paint - Fired Brick and Mowed Lawn on both sides of the bottom of the postbox  
  6. Add Soft Form Relief Paste - Pearl to create the snowflakes using a stencil, the snow on the fence, on the postbox and on the ground using a spatula
  7. Colour the wooden frame of the blackboard  with Distress Paint - Black Soot, then use a gold metallic acrylic to give an antique look to the frame. 
  8. Punch some holly leaves and colour them with gold metallic acrylic and with Distress Paint - Mowed Lawn and glue the leaves as decoration
  9. Finish the project adding a golden ribbon and some Stickles - Star Dust on the snow and on the leaves

I hope you will try to paint a school blackboard too and will enjoy this experiment.


  1. Looks like a fun project to make! Great idea!

  2. Clever idea and pretty creation with this little blackboard !

  3. This blackboard as the background for this postbox and scene works beautifully Magda and the red of the postbox really stands out. I love the gold edge too. x
