I chalked up a few daubers, and burnished or pushed firmly across the paper. Then I rubbed across the chalked paper with my fingers, this will seal the chalk, but also smears any chalk that might not be burnished into the paper. This leaves nice streak marks, so be careful if you don't like that effect. I used my square punches, and laid them diagonally, cutting them off around the sides. It was very fun to make!
