Easy Reuse: Clothing Tag Bookmarks

October 5th, 2011

I’m starting to think I’ve got a thing for bookmarks.

A few years ago I glued tea tags together to make bookmarks, but now I’m on to something new.

Some clothing tags are just too pretty to toss in the recycling bin.

Plus, you really don’t need all the info placed on those sometimes oversized adornments. The price tag is often separate, and all the other info you need is attached to the sewn-in clothing tag.

So, let’s give clothing tags more meaning by reusing them as bookmarks. I know what you’re thinking right now.

I’m too old-fashioned. Maybe e-readers are killing books, but I still prefer the look of type on paper. Yeah, not very tree-friendly of me, I know. Someone get me a Kindle…

Do you still use bookmarks? If so, do you buy them or make your own?

    I use clothes tags as bookmarks too. My favorite is a London Fog tag that I added with a black ribbon.

    Lili, sounds like a nice bookmark. Sometimes they last longer than the clothes they came on, don’t they? 🙂
