Give your gifts some flair with gift tags made using Dritz® chalkboard patches. We used our tags on these cute DIY mason jar sewing kits, but you can use the tags on the gifts of your choice. You’ve still got time for some holiday making – this is a quick and easy project!

6) Cut 4 tiny slits in the hole with scissors. (You’re going to apply an eyelet here, and you’ll need just a bit of wiggle room.)

Thread the tag with string or ribbon, and cut to desired length. Write a message or name on the tag, and tie the tag onto your gift.
