Tag, You’re It.

As an epilogue to our open closet makeover, I thought I’d post these tiny hanging labels that I made in all of five minutes. The devil really is in the details, and they look adorable (and they’re functional too). I whipped up one that says “sheet sets”, another that says “beach towels” and a third that’s labeled “hand towels & washcloths”.

All it took was a scissors, some twine, and some thick paper (I happened to have some extra white poster board laying around). I just cut out a few tag-shaped pieces of paper and poked a hole in each one with a needle so I could work the thread through. Sweet, huh? And free to boot.

    What a cute idea! I just came across a package of paper tags that I had picked up at a paper warehouse awhile back. They are slightly yellow/cream and have a hole built right in, and a string is included for each tag. I think the package of 50 was about $2! You have inspired me to do something creative with them. I will keep you posted on what I come up with.

    So cute!!! If only I had nice handwriting, then I could do that. I guess I will just have to print labels. :( Great ideas though, I love your blog!

    I love tags! :) If you ever want to get some awesome, inexpensive tags made for you I found this lady on etsy and she rocks: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5015388

    I just wanted to say that I’m loving all of the new features on your website! I’m so excited because my husband and I are finally buying our first home (you can read about it on my blog!) and I will be able to join in on the decorating and renovation stuff finally instead of just drooling over everyone else’s projects!! :)

    Keep up the great work! :)

    I just wanted to stop in and say “hi”…and to tell you how surprised I was when I was flipping through a little magazine from Better Homes and Gardens called “Secrets of Getting Organized”, and I came across a picture of YOUR makeshift “mudroom” and part of your laundry nook! It’s on page 27. It was pretty cool. Thought you’d like to know. Have a happy weekend (and happy belated b-day as well).
