Neighbor Gift with DIY Chalkboard Tags

 Today I’m sharing what my girlfriends & neighbors are getting for Christmas! (Spoiler alert!)

This is not by any means a new idea…wrapping paper for your neighbor gifts. 
But I added a few fun elements that I hope my friends will really like!

I made some really easy and reusable chalkboard tags to go in this little wrapping kit.

Spray paint both sides of your tags (you can use any wooden tags) with 2-3 coats of paint. Thank you, warmest December ever, for giving me an extra spray-painting day! 
Make sure to “prime” both sides of the tags by rubbing a piece of chalk all over and then erasing it. Baby wipes are perfect and make your tags totoally reusable!
The kraft wrapping paper is my all-time favorite Dollar Tree find! It’s not in the Christmas section – you can get it year round by the shipping envelopes / office supplies. 
I wrapped up some of my favorite red baker’s twine on an old clothespin, tucking the end piece into the clip, and then put it all in a clear bag.

I love the simple look of the kraft and the chalkboard tags! And doesn’t my sister have the most Christmasy name? I love it. (Sorry my sis, it’s a wrapped box of pasta. Didn’t want you to get your hopes up.)

    enjoy every moment with your litlte angel! babywearing, cosleeping, nursing on demand and following my instincts (as well as listening to my dear family & friends) has helped me immensely too!
