“FROZEN” Food Cards


I don’t have to mention that you are going to be seeing to much “Frozen” theme crafts around here for some time. That’s because I’m planning my daughter’s 2nd Birthday Party. What a good Reason to Craft! 

I’m the type of person that thinks… “If I can do it, why buy it?”. So, I’m making almost everything myself, including these cute little food cards. I really loved the chalkboard thing, so I did them like that too. The best part is that if I change my mind about a food, I can just erase it and write the new food to serve. Well, whithout more to say, let’s see how to make them.

You will need:

  • Cardstock: The one used to make posters or in school. I bought the white one at Dollar Tree, but you can also find it at Walmart or craft stores and Office supplies.
  • Chalkpaint
  • Chalk and chalk marker
  • Decorations of preference: I used some “Frozen” tape that I found at Dollar Tree, Cut the characters from a “Frozen” playing card set also found at Dollar Tree. You can use stickers or whatever you want.
  • Foam brush or roller
  • Scissors
  • Double side tape or hot glue


Instructions: 

  1. Cut the cardstock in 5″x10″ pieces. And bend them at the middle (like a card) to make it stand.
  2. Paint one of the outer sides with the chalk paint and let them dry 1 hr. Paint it again and let cure for 24 hrs before continuing with the next step. 
  3. Cover the painted area with chalk for conditioning. Wipe it with a wet towel.
  4. Start decoration. Make a frame with the decorative tape. Cut some character from the playing cards and tape it in any place of the food card that looks good for you. I prefer in a corner.
  5. Write the food name with the chalk marker and, voilà!, you have a hand made food card. 

    I tape everything instead of gluing it because this way I can take out the decorations and reuse it with another theme.
