I work at a commercial linen/laundry company.  When we rag out linen, we take the tags off.  I have to count them all to track the ragout, then I throw the tags away.  Sometimes I've done over 200 at once.  I hate to throw them away.  I keep thinking there has to be something that they can be used for.  They are little tags like you find on your towels and things.  They have the company name and linen size.  They are small, maybe 2 1/2 inches long, when unfolded, but all different sizes from different companies.  Any ideas?

I carefully cut out the clothing tags of my family's shirts one summer, and used a zig zag stitch to embellish a men's suit vest.  It's a great conversation starter whenever I wear it.  If you do something like this, be prepared for people leaning toward you and squinting so they can read the labels!

I am looking for size tags for tableclothes. all different sizes that I can stitch onto my unmarked ones. I hate getting them out and sizing them every time. Do you still have access to them? Thanks.
