2. Next, punch out at least seven tags using the Tag Thick Materials Shape Punch (Large) out of heavy cardstock. Get creative with using different colors for the weekend meals or other categories of meals.

4. On each tag, write what is on the menu for that night. If you regularly make the same meals, you don't have to throw out these tags. You can recycle them and use them week after week. Make a tag for regular meals and special nights, then when that's on the menu, you already have a tag made up for it!

5. Lay out the tags on your block of wood, evenly spaced, and mark where each nail should go. Hammer the nails in. Try using small copper upholstery nails for added character.
