Chalkboard Tags


I have been shuffling fabric around again and decided that I needed a better way to label whats in where..

I made some Chalkboard tags with a pti die and about 4 layers of chipboard.

I got the idea when I peeked at the make it monday post on Nicole's blog

I made 16 of these because I have 16 (blush) bins of fabric stuff

I bought some Martha Stewart Chalkbord paint and painted the pieces. I finished it off buth buttons and ribbons.

I think this will work..hmmmmuntil I decide I need to do something different
