How to make chalk paint gift tags #pintypluser

This is my usual gift tag plea… there’s nothing worse than trying to remember who gave you which gift in which paper, or attempting to find a name scrawled in biro!! Trust me!!

This year I am enjoying wrapping gifts in discarded paper from delivered parcels. A press with the iron and the paper is good to go:)

My gift tags are made with old cardboard, sprayed with negro plomo chalk paint. I have used Novasol Spray UK. Chalk paint was not originally invented for creating gift tags out of old cardboard but I am pleased with the finish.  For the best results use cardboard which has no sheen/print on it.

Firstly spray one side of your old cardboard. Allow to fully dry then turn over and repeat.

If you have one use a guillitine to cut out beautiful straight lined gift tags.

Decorate with a chalk paint pen, or if you don’t have one (like me!) how about cut out shapes in white paper?

I have used a silver pen to add names. I suggest writing on the side of the original cardboard which had no image/sheen to it as this allows the pen to adhere.

This is super easy and so effective, what’s more I am loving the thrifty nature of the wrapping and gift tags.
