Easiest Chalkboard Tags Ever!

This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'm super-excited about this little DIY for chalkboard tags today beause I really think it's going to come in handy for those of you trying to get those Christmas gifts wrapped in a quick, creative, and beautiful way. 

This idea came about when I was recently shopping for Christmas wrap at Dollar General.  I found some cute foil wrap and great wired ribbons, and then decided to add a creative flare with DIY tags, so I took a look in the school and office supplies aisle and found this awesome black poster board for only 75¢!  I wanted to create some labels that look like chalkboard with the black paper and a white pen.  I've done this before and it's a really cute look.

So I came home, and started cutting out the labels in the shapes and sizes I wanted... easy as could be!  But, even better, I tested out the poster board with a little chalk and found out it can actually be erased!  I know.  This is amazing news.   Are you as excited as I was?  The possibilities with this are endless!  And the price just cannot be beat!

You can write on the black poster board with a white pen for a permanent result, or write with the chalk for things you want to erase later!

Just use a dry cloth to wipe off the chalk!

I was able to buy 2 cute rolls of wrap, 3 spools of ribbon, a little Santa container, and the poster board (which will make a ton of tags) for just $10 and change!

I especially love this wired garland "ribbon" for adding a little sparkle.  I just wrap it around my finger to get a spiral and add a tag. 

And the ribbons are always a great addition...

And how cute is this Santa container filled with cookies?  A great gift for the neighbors!

So head over to the Dollar General Gift Center to see the great selection of Christmas wraps for a great price.  They have everything from pretty foils to your kids' favorite characters. 

And if you prefer ready-made tags, they have plenty of those, too...

And don't forget to grab your black poster board while you're there to whip up some tags or to put in a frame for the easiest chalkboard ever!
