Chalkboard Contact Paper Gift Tags

Recently I discovered chalkboard contact paper … brilliant! Really doesn’t take much to make me happy. So, in the spirit of holiday season gift giving, I created these super cute snowflake gift tags. Let me show you how to make them for your family and friends.

You’ll need:

  • Roll of contact paper
  • Paper punch (mine is a circle but you can also pick up really cool tag shaped punches as well)
  • Chalk pen
  • Hole punch
  • Card stock paper (any color will do)
  • String or twine

I purchased the contact paper, and chalk pen on Amazon, although you can purchase all of the project ingredients at any craft store.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Cut a piece of contact paper which will cover the card stock paper.
  2. Peel the backing of the contact paper and place it firmly on the paper.
  3. Cut the shape of your tag using the paper punch.
  4. Draw a snowflake or other image of choice. My method of drawing a snowflake is to simply start with an X then continue adding additional Xs on top of the first one. Then add little embellishments like dots or lines to create a unique snowflake.
  5. Punch a hole in the tag, add string or twine and you’re done!

I created these little succulent hostess gifts using vintage red depression glass goblets. Super fun and super easy!

Mason Jar Vases Wrapped in Book Pages

If you’re in need of a quick gift idea for Mother’s Day, a birthday, or just need a cool hostess gift. Then you’ve come to the right blog. Wrap some old book pages around a mason jar, secure it with twine, add grocery store flowers and you’re done! Mind you, I don’t go around destroying books, however, the pages I used were from an out-of-date encyclopedia that I annihilated when I was a child. Naughty, naughty.

Happy Mother’s Day, happy Sunday, AND happy day-after-your birthday Andrew!
