I made this tag with my favorite alphabet die, the Word Play die from Sizzix and Tim Holtz.
I started out with this 3″ X 12″ piece of manila card stock that I painted, stamped, and inked (it was a runner up for my website banner).
I cut a tag using the Sizzix Tag & Bookplates die and then ran the leftover piece through my Xyron® 5” Creative Station.
I attached the leftover piece to Grunge Paper, cut it into pieces that would fit my five letters, and arranged the pieces to cover the right letters:
I inked up the edges to make the letters pop more.
I ran the letters through my Xyron® 1.5” Create-a-Sticker:
Then I decided to cut the word from black card stock too, to make the letters stand out from the tag itself. I repeated the process with the small sticker maker and had letters like this:
I went to my ribbon stash and pulled some beauties, then added a bit of turquoise paint to an old Tim Holtz Philosophy tag which I attached with a hinge clasp.
