  • Decorate your bread tags and use them as book marks.
  • Use them to seal plastic bags of food that you are freezing.
  • Bread tags are a wonderful and effective way at keeping rubber bands clipped together – much better than putting them in a ball where they lose their elasticity and become a mission to get loose!

  • Spray paint these silver, gold, or green and use to hang Christmas tree lights.
  • Bread tags are a great way to replace lost pieces on board games.

    Loved this tip – I used it to make a seedling label and attached it to a thin dowel rod I use for making kebabs. Much better and more weather proof than my other cardboard labels. Have a photo but can’t attach?
