Every year I create my own gift tags. I always use thin cardboard like cereal boxes because they are easy to cut and are still sturdy. This year I added some white paint using a dry brush technique. Using a dry brush (no water necessary) apply acrylic paint by brushing back and forth in different directions. Apply thin layers of paint so that the original color of the cardboard can be seen. Let the paint dry and then cut out some fun shapes to use as tags. Punch a hole and you are done!
