DIY back to school gift

Back-to-school presents don't have to be large or expensive; it's important that they're made with thought, to show teachers a little appreciation for their efforts. Being one of these people who spends far too much time wrapping gifts than is probably normal, I was very excited to make these adorable chalk packs.

What you'll need:

  • Foil bag
  • Gold leaf
  • String
  • Handmade watercolor tags

Making the tags:

Step 1: Draw the desired tag shapes (triangles, squares, hearts), then cut them out from thick white paper and make holes using hole puncher.

Step 2: Engage your kids to paint the tags with watercolor, playing with colors while the paint is still wet (I used pink and yellow).

Making the gift packs:

Step 1: Create a little bag from the packing foil, or use ready foil bag.

Step 2: Place chalk, or any other gift you wish inside the foil bag.
