In my mailbox- Paper Source catalog

For the crafty types in the world, Paper Source is just a bit of heaven on earth. For those of you unfamiliar with the store, they carry a variety of greeting cards, invitations, blank paper, blank cards, stamping supplies, exquisite handmade papers, delicate ribbons.....okay, I could go on and on. Believe me, I have spent my fair share of time (and money) in the local shop in Kansas City.

In the most recent catalog, they have these adorable chalkboard items. I fell in love with two things: a chalkboard coaster and candle tin. They brought out the inner child in me!

I used to love the chance to write on the blackboard at school. (except that one time when my name was listed on the chalkboard for being disruptive in class...anywho, I digress).

I think these items would be awesome favors, place cards or escort cards. You could write guests names on top of the tins with their table assignment and display those on a table. Or, how about writing a "thank you" or "love" note to all of your guests for them to take at the end of the event? For the coasters, the same escort/place card idea could be used. Here's one better- a personalized welcome note at each guest's place setting (think coasters propped up on tiny easels!)

I feel an inspiration board coming on with these little gems! How would you use the chalkboard favorites at Paper Source?
