  1. I have had a problem with my BE bags for some time---nothing bad, just a storage problem. Don't you hate it when you walk into your closet and see those black BE dustbags, not knowing which bag is in which dustbag? I disliked having to open every dustbag until I found the bag I was looking for so much that it was time to find a solution.

    So, I spent about a total of three hours taking all my bags out, taking pics, printing pics, cutting, pasting, and laminating. Basically, I cut the pic of each bag, glued it onto posterboard, and laminated it using Scotch 3M self-laminating pouches that fit pics up to 4" x 6". Then I put a single hole punch on the center top and center bottom of the laminated pic and safety-pinned it to each dustbag.

    Voila! Here's a sample dustbag:

  2. Here are my "BE playing cards" that I made up during the course of my project. I was a little reluctant to punch holes in them because they were really great playing cards.

    This something I will need to emulate!

    And a double bonus is we could play Purse Poker with the cards! They themselves are cute!
