Have you ever made DOOR TAGS?Here's an idea that's new to me. I know that a lot of you make gorgeous tags; but have you ever made a door tag? If you're wondering what I'm talking about, I mean the type of tag that you hang on the doorknob when you stay at a hotel letting them know that you do not want to be disturbed, or to please clean your room. Think how much fun it would be to create tags for your own home? You could make tags for your children's rooms, for your own room. Even the bathroom! My creative juices really started flowing when I thought about what a neat idea this would be for gifting. Imagine giving a gorgeously decorated "do not disturb" tag at a Bridal shower? Gifts for students who live in dorms. Your office at work or at home, maybe? Happy Birthday Door Tags. There are endless possibilities.
Are you interested in creating a door tag for a tag challenge? Create a tag, post a photo on your blog, and come back here to add a link so that everyone can see what you created. If there's enough interest, we might even consider a door tag exchange after the challenge is over.
There aren't many rules here. Make the tag using paper, fabric, or any other medium you may choose. The tag should be small enough to fit into a 4 inch by 9 inch envelope, just in case we decide to trade. If you google DOOR TAGS, you'll see lots of ideas. And if you google DOOR TAG TEMPLATES, you will find many types of shapes and sizes to use. If you want your tag to utilize a ribbon hanger, that's fine. It should just be easy to put on and take off of the door knob. Double sided tags would be interesting. I just KNOW that you creative people will come up with some fabulous ideas! Here's a few pix I found on the Internet to fuel the fire:
Of course, there has to be a prize! But I don't want to make this a competition. I'm sure there will be so many gorgeous tags that it would be impossible to pick a winner that way! To make it simple, I'll just throw all of the names into ... Random Number Generator... and choose a winner. You may post as many tags as you like. (I just signed up for this linkie-thingamajig and I don't think there are any limitations -- but we'll find out!). You will get one chance to win for each tag you create and link below. What is the prize? I haven't decided yet - but it will be worth it!
You have until Monday, June 6 to make and link your tag. I would like to end the challenge a bit sooner; but I'm visiting my children in Kentucky over the Memorial Day weekend, so I need to make the challelnge end the following week. This gives you a full month to create and post tags! Please let me know in the 'comments' section if you are interested in participating -- and I sure hope you are!
