Step 1: Cut small squares from the cardboard, one for each tag you want to make.
Step 2: Punch a hole in one end (top center) of each tag.
Step 3: Cover your surface with newspaper. It is best to do this outside, but if you can't, choose a very well-ventilated area. Spray paint the tags thoroughly with the chalkboard paint, covering both sides. Paint more than one coat if necessary.
Step 4: Let tags dry completely
Step 5: Cut a piece of your thread or rope and thread it through the hole, tying the ends together at the top, making a loop.
Step 6: Repeat this process with the other tags. Write your message in chalk (or have your child write it) and attach to your gift!
