What I Used To Make My Tag.
(please remember you can use what you like to make your tag, these are just ideas)
1. Small amount of calico.
2. Small amount of stiffener.
5. Rubber stamps, (Tim Holtzs)
6. Black ink pad, (Stayson)
7. Various scraps of Christmas ribbon.
8. Hole punch, (Cropadile) or awl.
11. And all the usual, pens, rulers, scissors, irons and sewing machines
|Decide on the size of fabric tag you wish to make. Mine is, 10 cm x 21 cm.|
|Use some old cereal box card to make yourself a template, plus one, 1 cm smaller all the way around. Cut two tags from your fabric. (The larger template)|
|I choose to stain my fabric with tea|
|Just one hour emerged in the tea, get the calico to a great grungy colour. Iron them dry and stamp with whatever images you like|
|Using the smaller template, cut out two more tags from the stiffening.|
|Stitch one stiffener tag to the back of the front tag and the other to the back of the back tag!!!|
|Add decorative stitching and festive ribbons, buttons and beads.|
|Stitch both tags together. Use a hole punch and add a ribbon.|
|I have been into the studio and sprayed the spine black, so in time I will add the pages.|
That is it for today, join me tomorrow. x
