11 Tag Tuesday
Hello friends! It's Tag Tuesday again, when I share a tag (or two) using a similar product as Shantaie! This week, Shantaie is using the Imagine More cartridge and printable vinyl on her Imagine That project. This one challenged me, as far as creating a tag, because I wanted to use the printable vinyl, too, yet not just stick it to a paper tag. I remembered I had a 5 x 7 piece of aluminum flashing (from the hardware store) and decided to cut it into tags. I cut it down to the sizes I wanted using my Tonic guillotine cutter that I use for paper. It cut easily without any problems. I printed two pieces of patterned paper on the printable vinyl using the Imagine and the Imagine More cartridge. After I adhered the patterned pieces of vinyl to the aluminum pieces and inked them up a bit with Ranger alcohol ink, I used my Corner Chomper to round the corners, otherwise they are pretty sharp. I then sanded the edges a bit to be sure they weren't too sharp. Next I Cuttlebug Embossed the aluminum tags, one with the Moroccan Screen folder and the other with the Distress Stripes folder. After that I cut a couple of the images from the Imagine More cartridge and adhered them to the tags, elevating some pieces for texture. The tags are finished off with gem-brads and string.
Now be sure to stop over to see Shantaie! I haven't seen what she's created at the time of me writing this post, but I can guarantee that if she's using the printable vinyl, it's going to be great!
