These cute chalkboard tags:
Add a pair of scissors, a hot glue gun, chalk (I used vinyl) for the names, and some embellishments.
Start by cutting 2 - 3" pieces from a paper straw and gluing them together at an angle.
Cut another 2" piece and glue it across the two pieces you just glued together toward the bottom leaving a little space for 'feet'.
Next cut another 3" piece and glue it to the first two so it forms an easel.
Cut a small section off the last piece so the easel will tip back just a bit.
To hide the glue at the top, I added a small bit of Bittersweet.
The chalkboard tags come with a small clothespin on the back so I used my heat gun to warm up the glue and pried them off.
I used my Cricut Maker and some vinyl to make the names. You can also use stickers or chalk. After applying the vinyl, I embellished with a little more bittersweet.
Two dabs of hot glue to attach it.
