Chalkboard Tags

In our February issue, you were treated to a peek into our Crafts Lab. We share the lab with our quilting compadres who store their miles of beautiful fabrics in baskets alongside our baskets overflowing with awesome scrapbooking tools and supplies. Though the baskets are uniform, the contents of the Scrapbooks etc. baskets are identified with chalkboard tags (see above!). So easy to make, the tags are versatile for crafting, gift-giving, identifying your own storage items, and of course, are reusable! Here’s how we made ours:

We started with an assortment of papers from the Echo Park Dots & Stripes collection.

Cut tag shapes by hand, or take the easy route and cut a tag shape (and its black cardstock shadow) with a die-cutting machine. We used a Cricut machine with the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge.

Cut self-adhesive vinyl chalkboard into rectangles slightly smaller than the tags, peel and stick. You’ll find the Wallies Peel & Stick Chalkboard sheets we used here. Rough up the chalkboard piece with the long edge of a piece of chalk, wipe it off, and its ready to go.

Add a ribbon and the tag’s ready for your project, basket, or gift!

  1. Thanks so much for this cute idea. I will be making these for my craft/homework supply baskets!

  2. I’ve never seen these kinds of stickers. With some colored chalk, I have a couple of ideas of my own! Thank you!
