DIY: DOTW Clothing Tags

Aww yes, you are amidst " Spring Cleaning", juggling between extreme rain and 70 degree weather, deciding whether to toss that two-year old cargo jacket or keep the calve-length skinny black boots while putting your winter clothes in either the "Donate" or " Hybernate" pile.
It's taken me over a month to go through Spring Wardrobe cleaning just because of the fickle weather but, I have managed to sift through a majority of my wardrobe!
So what now? How do I make the closet a "fun" place to wake up and plan my wardrobe?
No fear, keep track of your daily outfits with Do-it-yourself Day of the week clothing tags!
The materials are bare-bones simple and it puts some pep into reaching for you clothing each day.

- 3x5 Index cards ( 7-8 cards)
-Magazines ( old ones will do)
-Nail polish
-Ribbon ( 1/2 yard)
- Scissors
- Glue stick


1.To start, cut or rip pieces of inspiration from your magazine and glue it down to your index card. ( See Pic below!)

2. Next fold the center of the index card in half and cut a "V" at the top middle crease and thread through an approximate 3 inch piece of ribbon.

3. Choose a nail polish color, to paint on the Day of the week for each card. Below I chose OPI's You Don't Know Jacque for Monday.

4. Let the card dry in a well ventilated area for approximately 45 minutes.

Voila! you have your Day of the week tabs for Monday through Sunday and a G for Gentile and a D for Delicates!
