7 New Uses for Bread Tags

Published on: Author: Anne Langton

It’s summertime…time for some light hearted fun… and so I shall blog about bread tags!  As an organizer I love to throw things out if they are no longer useful.  And I have to say I am always amazed at what people save…like bread tags!  However I love to find new uses for old things.  I think if forces me to be creative and yet the result is something useful.   That speaks to me.  Anyone that has worked with me on a design project knows that just about sums up my style…I seek to find creative aesthetic solutions but they must function in a practical useful manner.  And so you can see how finding 7 new uses for old bread tags was right in my wheelhouse!  So while I am not endorsing saving bread tags for the sake of saving them IF they might make your life easier…I say go for it!

USE #1:   LABEL COMPUTER CORDS

This is my favorite and all it takes its a sharpie and some legible handwriting.  Note that you might have to make some openings larger with a hole punch for certain cords

 

 

USE #2:   FLIP FLOP REPAIR

Granted this is not a long term repair but it might hold up just long enough to get a replacement on board!

 

 

USE #3:   LABEL THOSE SPARE KEYS

Do you have a container of keys that you have NO IDEA to what they open?

 

 

 

USE #4:  WINE GLASS TAGS

Bread tags as wine glass tags

 

 

 

 

Well I admit maybe not for an elegant dinner party but I could see a use at a large informal gathering.  Write guest names on tags OR cartoon characters even…bring out someone’s inner Sponge Bob

 

 

USE #5:   LABEL EXTENSION CORDS

Extention Cord Label

 

 

 

 

Am I the only one that reaches in to find a short extention cord and comes up with 4 long ones?  Label cords for a quick and speedy find.

 

 

USE #6:   TAPE STARTER

Love this…no more searching for the end of the tape with your finger nail!

 

 

USE # 7:  WEDDING DRESS?

Yeah well I just could not let this one slip buy! Hope it brings a smile 🙂
