Altered St. Patty's Chalk Board

So, this is my final teacher's gift. I hope I'm not boring you all with this stuff! But it's that time of the year! This was a fabulous find at Target back in April. I stalked a few local Target to get three of these suckers. They were made for St. Patty's day, but when they went on Clearance, I waited and waited until they hit 75% off. Random tidbit, I used to work for Target and was over their clearance, so I know how low it'll go! I stalk the racks, and love finding good deals. I had to paint over the bright green, which I did with spray paint. Than I covered it with K and Co cardstock. It was a touch bigger than 12 inches, so I had to kinda layer up the ends, hoping to hide it with the pattern. Than I added some flowers, and ribbon. I hope her teacher will love it. I have another one to make for me!
