Clean slate.

There are two kinds of people in the world: wrapping paper rippers, and wrapping paper openers. Some relish in the frenzied tearing of paper to see what’s inside — but not me, I’m in the latter group. I carefully pick apart the seams of the present, because to me  the wrapping is one of the best parts of the gift. I’ll fold up pieces of the paper to reuse or save if I like the pattern,  cards get tacked up on my bulletin board or fridge, and I’m the one picking up ribbons and bows at the end of the party and rolling them up in my pocket. This why I’m drawn to the chalkboard tags on Kate’s Papergoods (having an awesome name doesn’t hurt either). I love the idea of re-purposing these on different gifts, using them at parties to note seating arrangements, or writing little messages on them for fun. How special would you feel if one was on the gift you were opening?
