Though no longer the crafting new kid on the block, chalkboard paint remains popular, especially when used in a clever way, like this chalkboard gift tag which is painted directly onto the Kraft paper wrap. Thanks to Kraft paper's thickness, you can paint it and the wrinkles will flatten out as the paint dries.
Put leftover paint chips to good use as cute and colorful gift tags. Use a Christmas-shaped die or punch to cut the chip into a shape you like then add the recipient's name with a stamp or permanent marker.
If you have some basic gift tags that need a little pick-me-up, think about soaking them in a mixture of water and instant coffee. The longer you let the tags soak, the darker the intended look will be. For added color variation, sprinkle with instant coffee grounds and allow it to air dry.
