Hardware Samples into Decor

Hello everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you a little project I have came up with that I think is 

pretty awesome!  

While walking through Home Depot  {my favorite store}  I came across these little "tags" that are 

samples of different laminate flooring and my mind started turning...

{Hmm...I bet these bad boys could replace the cardboard tags that I am constantly making!}   

I grabbed a bunch and went home to test my theory.  I figured since they were a laminate surface I    

could use Dry Erase Markers to decorate the fronts and just erase and repeat!

And what do you know? My theory was right!! {YAY}
Next step was to make a place to display them since they can be reused...

I also have a Memo Board that I dress up for the different holidays and have incorporated  

these little "tags" into!

Let me know what you think!

  2. I love this and pinned this! I think I might paint some with chalkboard paint ...

    ... and they can be used as present tags that the giftee could reuse too!
