DIY Friday: Do something with tags!

I have a real problem with tags. I can't stop buying them, and yet I can't bring myself to use them either! I don't really give that many gifts away, and I don't organize things alot so it leaves me with a huge stash of gems that I like to look at but don't dare actually use. And God forbid on of my children gets into the tags--you'd think I was hoarding chocolate candies or something. (My mother did that!) I had the same problem with my sticker collection as a young girl. Mounds of stickers to touch and view, but never to be used.

The good news is that if you are planning a wedding or other party, you actually have a really good reason to use tags. They make great place cards (write the guest's name and tie it around the napkin), favor tags, thank you notes, food labels (on jars of lemonade, packets of snacks) etc. This is a collection of tags I found on etsy this morning. I have already placed my order (I feel like if I admit to the problem, then isn't that the first step recovery?) and I'm asking you--what do you do with tags? And do you have the same problem collecting them as I do? Am I not alone in this??? Have a great weekend everyone! I'm going to Ann Arbor to see my favorite singers Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova perform, as well as visiting with one of my favorite cousins (they really are all my favorites!) and her husband. Yeah!
