Tag, You're It!

Remember those tags I mentioned that my mom wanted me to make for her?  I have been meaning to show you what she did with them because it is such a simple and cute idea!

I used plain, inexpensive white tags, distressed them with chalk ink, then labeled them with alphabet stamps.  

I gave them to my mom and she then used twine to tie them on items in her kitchen.  I love what she did with this tiered basket stand...bags of treats are also tied with twine and ready to share!

And her canisters of flour and sugar now have a personal, cozy touch!

And in case you were wondering, those are two homemade-by-Mom tomato pies.  Oh my, my, my!  She used this recipe from one of my blogs past!

These tags were such a simple little project that added just the right touch to her fall kitchen!

Linking up to this party with fun ideas for inspiration...
