Chalkboard Tags



Several of you asked about where I found the little chalkboard tags on the galvanized buckets
I shared in my armoire organization post
They are so simple and easy to make.


It started with a package of large luggage tags I found at Staples awhile back
I love big old chunky luggage tags- they are great for so many things.
tagging vintage items for sale, personalized gift tags or simple banners.


I used them for this 'Believe' banner recently.


I wanted something that I could change easily and the chunky tags were perfect.
It would be simple to make these out of a piece of tin or wood or even use chipboard tags
but I had these on hand already and thought I would put them to use


So...
I took out my trusty Purdy paintbrush & coated several tags with chalkboard paint


One even coat was all it took to cover them.
As the paint dries dry, they will start to curl a bit but
you should be able to just pick them up and curl them right back to flat easily.

Then I simply wrote what I wanted on the labels and tied them to the buckets 
I love the idea of using them at a vintage shop and writing the price on them
and reusing them easily when it sells.


A quick random post~  it's a busy week over here
so several larger projects have been on the back burner for a bit.
but am hoping to get a little chalk painted treasure post up soon :)


Happy Wednesday!
See you tomorrow for Feathered Nest Friday!!

  13. Love your chalkboard tags Courtney.
    Here's a little tip for you... paint one side of your tag with a little water before you paint the other side with paint and it won't curl.

  17. Oh I Just love this! I have been looking all over for Galvanized tubs and can not find any. I did find chalkboard contact paper and have been using that for labels along with my Stampin' Up! Punches but need to find the tubs!
    Very cute!
