a couple of weeks ago i was complaining (to myself) that i always have to search under like 10 garment bags to find the dress i'm looking for in my closet.  the very next day, serendipitously, i received my martha stewart organizing tip of the day email (yes, i got those.  move along...).  it was for garment tags that hang on your hangers and identify what's underneath.  told ya: serendipity.

so, i set to work on my own variation.  

first, i took pictures of each dress
computer screen w/ all pics uploaded

then, i gathered the necessary supplies
printed pictures, tags from staples, ribbon from michael's, tape dispenser from michael's (my handy dandy tool for all things paper crafting), paper cutter

i cut out the pictures with the paper cutter i use for scrapbooking
so i guess there's SOME redeeming quality to scrapbooking

and then taped them onto the tags 
and used some packaging tape on top to protect the pics

next, i thread a little ribbon through the hole and tied a knot at the top
ta da!

and (hopefully) hung the tags on the right hanger
some of the finished tags, ready for their hangers

just saved myself a couple of extra minutes per dress search!  and before you mock me too much, those minutes are frequently the difference between catching the bus...

...and just missing it.
