Glittered Chalkboard Cloth Reusable Gift Tags

Hi, apple pie.
I recently discovered my new favorite textile when Laura at Finding Home shared a 
chalkboard cloth table runner that she purchased.
The only thing better than
chalkboard paint is chalkboard cloth.
{LOVE at first sight.}
I found it at JoAnn for around $3/yard
with a 40% off coupon.
Thank you, Laura for inspiring a
flurry of projects with this stuff!
I’ll keep this tutorial short and sweet
because there’s really nothing to it.
Step 1
Cut your cloth into rectangles.
Step 2
Dip each edge into craft glue.
(Regular Elmer’s is just fine.)
Step 3
Then, dip each edge in glitter.
I used fine grit German Glass Glitter.
Miss Mustard Seed has me hooked on it.
Clicking her link will take you to her glass glitter video tutorial.
Step 4
Let it dry.
Now you have a simple, sparkly, reusable gift tag.
Just another fancy pants way to go green
on the gifts. 

And, I appreciate your sweet & encouraging 
comments on yesterday’s post!
I’ll be back tomorrow before taking few days
to enjoy my favorite time of the year
and bake some serious pies.
(My apple crisp pie recipe is in the ezine below.)
That pie, my mac salad, and a baked Monterey Jack mac & cheese 
are the only crowd pleasers that come out of this kitchen.

    The tags look fantastic. The only thing is, do you ask for them back after the gift is given?

    Oh, and by the way, lately I feel like nothing I make works from my kitchen either. It’s so deflating after all the work! The mac and cheese sounds divine.
