Magnetic, Reusable Chalkboard Tags

I'm still playing with my Sizzix 'Life Made Simple' die sets. This time I am using them to make tags with the smaller size card dies.  I put tiny (but strong) Sierra Pacific magnets in between the front and back tag pieces.  By doing this the recipient of the tag can cut the twine and use the tag as a magnet or if she is making a Project Life type album, the card can be written on and slipped into a pocket.
This close-up shows the Doodle Bug sprinkles I used to embellish the tag.  I love the opaque but shiny look of these little adhesive dots.
 On this tag I used  Studio 112 flower dot stickers. They are so cute and so inexpensive that they will definitely make you 'smile'.
 All of these tags made use of my seemingly unlimited supply of scraps.  This alone is a great reason to make tags, but I love making them because they are fast and fun.
 If you use chalkboard paper for the back of your tag, they can be erased and reused again and again.  A message can be written on the tags with chalk or bistro pens and then the magnetic note can be left on the refrigerator.
All of the supplies for these magnetic chalkboard tags can be purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. I think your friends would love to receive a gift with a magnetic chalkboard tag that they can reuse or display, or put in an album.  (Remember to keep the magnet tag away from your credit cards.)  I hope this post has been of interest to you.  It is always my desire to make your visit to this blog enjoyable. Please visit again and leave a comment if you have the time.  I love hearing from you!

Super cute tags, Lynn! The enamel dot eyes on the robot made me laugh and of course, I have a soft spot for bathroom people!
