Labels/numbering help, please.

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I purchased some die-cut balloons to use for an incentive wall I am doing. As kids reach goals, I move their balloon along the wall.

I'd like to number the balloons rather than use names so I can keep them for next year.

I would like to boldly and neatly label them with numbers. My first thought was to use printable labels using a bold font, but it looks kind of sterile. I used calendar numbers in the past, but I need to number all the way to 38 this year.

TIA!

How about clear labels

These are 2 inches by 4 inches. I am not sure how large you want the numbers, however with the clear labels you can print the numbers on them and even format the labels with a border and put them on the balloons. Then if you laminated them you could easily keep them from year to year. I love clear labels and numbers I use them all over my classroom. IF you go to the avery website they even have templates with the borders on them and you just add the text or numbers before you print them.

Did you know that if you laminate the balloons and write on them with a sharpie... that it will clean right off when you use nail polish remover... that way you can use their names and still use them for next year...

That would be way cheaper than the labels, since our school allows us to laminate anything. What kind of nail polish? Does it need to be non-acetone?

I have always used non-acetone and it works just fine.. I've heard you can use nail polish with acetone but I accidentally spilt some on my coffee table once and I saw it each through the wood ... so I have always been a little hesitant.

Hairspray also works to get permanent marker off of lamination

depending on the hairspray and how long the writing has been on there, sometimes I spray and wait and it just starts to puddle and I wipe it off and sometimes I spray and wipe right away. I have had times that I have had to let it dry a little on there and then wipe, but it always comes off
