Not long ago I was setting up a reception for a friend's wedding. The candle centrepieces came with these tags around the candles on string. I set them aside figuring I could do something with them. The only notion I have had yet is something with scrapbooking. But I don't scrapbook, and don't intend on it. So I'm hoping someone will have a brilliant idea?

Thx! Cheesy

If they are metal like, do they make noise? Maybe you could make a wind chime.  Or paint the backs with chalkboard paint and have reusable garden tags to label different stuff.  Or you could make some sort of tree and attach them as non-traditional leaves... it might look interesting. Use em on greeting cards?

Hang them from a rectangle tree...  layer them around a wooden frame..    place them under glass coasters.

thread them onto some pretty string.. and let them flutter in them wind..   Use them on place cards for thanksgiving.. or a fall dinner..

I want them for a dangly chunky necklace! Place them about 1.5 inches apart for about 7 tags worth on a chain or separated by beads (generally speaking you would want an odd number of things dangling from your necklace)

They look nice.  How about putting them on keychains, bookmarks, cellphone charms, decorations on gifts?

How many do you have?

I have a leaf motif around some of my furnishings for my main room, and I thought that would be nice to use ribbon and turn that into trom for the lampshade, and use one for the pull cord if it has a pull cord switch.  Or to decorate planters.  What is the material - is it something that could degrade when exposed to the elements?  Do you make cards - they can be used as a centrepiece on a homemade card.

Thank you for all the ideas!

 there are around 12 or so and i really have no idea of what they are made, they do make noise when hit together like metal, but they can be snapped in half far too easy to be metal, i think... I might look into using them for a lampshade trim, that sounds cool. I will make sure to post whenever I do get around to something!
