Crafting with Erasers!

I found these felt chalkboard erasers at the dollar store the other day and just knew something cute could be made out of them. You can use this eraser on a dry erase board also.
I found this sentiment in my new PaperCrafts magazine, it was on a "back to school" card. But I just knew it would be perfect on these erasers.
I painted the top with black acrylic paint, and then used my white gel pen to write the sentiment. I then used my E-6000 glue to attach some buttons. I think I clear coat or sealant will make it last longer, I'll apply that tonight when it's not 101 degrees outside!!!
