One of my 2012 goals is to stretch my creative wings and to try new things - different mediums, art journaling, and adding recycled and/or repurposed items to my creative endeavors are on my to-do list. Harkening back to my home ec days I decided to ditch my typical paper and glue and reached for some colorful fabrics and topped off with chalkboard fabric. Digging around in my stash of ribbon I found some fun grosgrain ribbons to go with them. Voila - reusable tags!
Initially I was thinking that these would be used to attach to gifts. But why stop there? Wouldn't they look fantastic on baskets to help organize toys, the laundry room, a craft room...? Or how about strung on some colored string or tulle for a cheery garland with a personalized message? While they can be used with traditional chalk the bright color and unsmearability of chalk ink markers really makes them winners. Super easy to clean off with a damp cloth too.
Cool, huh? Check them out in my Etsy shop.
UPDATE: The blue ones are gone but the pink set is still available!
