If you are always leaving notes around the house then these little gems are going to draw the attention that you are looking for, plus they are reusable.

There are a couple of ways you can create them. You could use chalkboard paint to make the small pallets or you could try this method provided by goin over the edge.

I’m going to start this post by showing you the finished project – reusable chalkboard tags that clip on items with a clothespin. Brilliant! I saw this idea on Pinterest and gave it a Stampin’ Up! spin – instead of using chalkboard paint and painter’s tape, I used Chalkboard Decor Elements Sheets (Item 118815 on page 216 of the big SU! catalog. You get two sheets measuring 14″ x 24″ for $14.95).I love how decor elements can transform a room. In fact, I have many on the walls and side of the fridge at my studio. Also on the side of my fridge is a big chalkboard decor element sign that I use all the time to post info for my next class! It’s wonderful. Note: The decor elements will NOT be in the next SU! catalog, coming out in June. They and the Simply Adorned line (jewelry) are being discontinued. So if you want any of these items, order them NOW!

They are really a no brainer to make, but the idea is brilliant. It really doesn’t take much to bring a smile to a youngster’s face especially when there is candy involved, but you must admit to give it to them in something like this really makes it extra special.

Making artwork more special:

You are really going to impress the kids when you turn their works of art into something they can play with and makes it a little more long lasting and with more meaning. While this focuses around an animal theme, you could carry the concept over to any fantasy world of art. It could be comprised of wizards and dragons, or princesses and castles.
