this is one of those do it yourself projects that even someone like me can do. i.e. someone with little to no patience can tackle this! the idea for this actually came about because i wanted a cool way to label my magazine bins. i was inspired by these baskets from an uber-organized designer who offered some organizational tips in o magazine.
ok, so my cheap-o magazine bins aren’t quite as nice but since it would cost a fortune to outfit all my magazines in fancy baskets, these will work just fine for now! and the chalkboard tags uplift them from plain jane – a definite change from how they were – not labeled and i’d have to pull out each bin to find out what was in it – can anyone say inefficient?!
here’s how it’s done:
grab the above items (you’ll also need a paper cutter & hole punch).
i used this free tag template via scrapbook scrapbook.
it’s as simple as tracing the template onto the cardstock paper, cutting it out, hole punch the middle and put a reinforcement label on. ta-da! you’ve got your own chalkboard tag!
