Kool Aid Gift Tags

If you have cardstock, ribbon, and packet of Kool Aid... you've got everything you need to make this set of adorable gift tags. No kidding! I used plain cream cardstock cut into 2 x 3 1/4 inch rectangles, looped some purple ribbon through holes I punched in the top, then dipped the bottoms in grape Kool Aid*. Check out pictures of my process below & try it yourself. Have fun experimenting with different flavors colors - they even smell good!

This project took me a total of 30 minutes. At first I was worried because the Kool Aid in the bowl looked too dark, but the color actually went on really light & darkened to a nice shade as it dried. I'm looking forward to using these tags on Easter gifts - the color is perfect for this time of year!

* I didn't add sugar to the Kool Aid {as the package suggests} since I was using it as dye & not a beverage. Just empty one sleeve into a bowl with 6 oz. of tap water
