More Clothes Organization

If you know me very well at all, you would laugh to think I was offering organization advice of any kind, much less in two posts in a row!

But since I made my son some tags in this post, I had to make some for my 11 year-old daughter.  They are to help with picking out their clothes for school.  On Sunday evenings, we will pick out their clothes for each day of the week and put the corresponding tag on the hanger.  Then each morning should go smoother when they are getting ready for school.  (Hopefully, right?)

I used Bazzill cardstock and an American Girl paper stack from Michael's.  I cut the tags out with the Cricut Cupcake Lite cartridge (at 4" and 4 1/2" since there aren't shadows on this cartridge) and the days of the week and their backgrounds with the Cricut Chore Chart Lite cartrige (set at 2").  I also added some Prima flowers with Paper Studio brads, and We R Memory Keepers large eyelets with ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  Then I added a little faux stitching with my white Sakura Gelly Roll pen and some Stampin' Up! markers.

Close-ups of a couple of my favorites!  I had to do each day's tag a little differently for variety.

Hope you like these tags; DD loves them and can't wait to pick out her clothes for this school week!  She even thinks the two year-old needs some.  I'm not sure about that--I usually dress her after we drop the others off at school.  I have plenty of time to wake up and think about what each of us wears for the day, lol!

I'm entering this project in a new challenge.  It's the first one for the Cut It Up Challenge Blog!  It's based on using die cutting machines for creating, and the challenge this time is "anything goes."  Perfect for my tags! You can find the challenge here.  Go over and check it out and enter something--you have until Sept. 19th!  Good Luck!

    1. Yes, I've thought of that possibility, and right now, we haven't implemented the tag system--I'm waaaaaay behind on laundry!! Living day-to-day this week. And of course, we may have to make changes due to weather . . .
