"chalkboard" take out boxes for holiday leftovers

We have recently repackaged our 8oz, 16oz and 32oz coloured chinese take out boxes in smaller packages of 10! This is great news if you don't need 50 boxes or you want to buy a variety of different colours to match your party or holiday decor. 

I thought that it would be interesting to see if you could use chalk markers on the black take out boxes like I did here with our black wrapping paper. So I tried it out this week and hey, it works!! I used the Bristo chalk markers on my samples. Aren't they adorable?

These would be a great idea for the holidays. No more looking around for extra plastic containers and bags. Send family and friends off with these "take home" boxes with leftovers. Long distant guests will think you are the hostess with the mostess when you give them these take out boxes filled with small cookies as a treat for the ride home!

If you want to use the coloured take out boxes you can simply add chalkboard stickers for a fun detail. We have three shapes of chalkboard stickers and you can write on them with chalk markers or regular chalk.

Here's another look at my funky little "take home" boxes.

Here's one for Santa! The beautiful snowflake sugar cookies that I used in my photos were purchased from Cupids Gourmet Bakery. Cupids is a nut free bakery with a locations in Oakville & Burlington and they make the most amazing (and beautiful) cupcakes and cookies!
