Chalkboard labels using Chalk Markers

Now that Christmas is safely packed away for another 12 months, I've moved on to springtime gift giving. I have several friends' birthdays coming up and I like to steal moments here and there out of my busy day, to go a little step further with embellished packaging.

I was recently asked to try these liquid chalk markers by Craft Skill. Mine came in a box of 18 markers and 6 extra tips. The colors are so bright - there's even florescent pink, yellow and green. As you can see, I chose more subtle spring colors for this gift box project.

The tips of the markers are reversible so that you have a round tip as well as a chiseled tip available to use with each marker. Perfect for calligraphy experts (and non-experts too!)
I started out by cutting a tag from chalkboard cardstock (affiliate links at the bottom of this post). It has the perfect chalkboard-y texture and it's my favorite because it's double-sided and very durable.
The markers need to be shaken well before use to activate the ink. Then you pump the tip of the marker a few times onto scrap paper and super bright color starts to soak the through. At this point, you know they're ready to use.

I created a simple design because I'm yet to take that calligraphy class I've been so meaning to do.

  1. Are they metallic? The silver looks like it. Very cute tag!

  2. Hi Patty! Thank you! The white isn't metallic, but my box included a silver and gold which ARE metallic and beautiful 😃

  3. How did you make that paper flower on the package and do you have a tutorial?

    1. Hi Tiffany! I used a Fiskars 'succulent' paper punch to cut the individual petals and I glued them all together. I don't have a tutorial right now, but I do have plans for other projects using this punch, so stay tuned! Here's a link to the tool I used :
