Tag #10 seemed to be a tag I could do with the least amount of supplies to pull out, so that's the one I did.
I didn't have the sticky-back foil that Tim used, so I was going to use metal pipe repair tape. Then I remembered that I had a roll of Ten Seconds Studio Aluminum in a box somewhere.
I found the box and the aluminum. I had never even opened the tube. Also in the box was the Metal Effects book by Cheryl Darrow that I purchased when I bought the aluminum. I had written my name and the date in the book, and guess when I bought it? 2005!! There were unopened templates along with all of the ball & cups, paper stump and foam mats in the box as well. This just reminds me that I don't need to buy more stuff. Well, until Tim's 12 new Distress inks are released. LOL!
Anyway, here's my Tag #10 (above). I spelled out the words Merry and Eggnog - I slanted one of the "R"'s like too much eggnog had been sipped! I also added the #2 and #5 and a couple of stars.
I used different sizes of the Grungeboard letters since I only had one pack of each size and not enough R's and G's in any one pack.
Finished the tag by re-punching the hole and threading a green and red plaid ribbon through it. I covered the back of the tag (forgot to take a photo) with a cream colored wallpaper with gold raised dots on it. I like the backs of the tags to be "finished". I don't have the Tiny Attacher, so I didn't do the staple thing that Tim did.
I'll do another one of these tags before the end of the month. I wasn't all that thrilled with the way this one turned out. Kinda rushed through it. I'll take a little more time with the next one.
No time to do another tag tonight though. Gotta make that chocolate, chocolate chip cake to take to Gen's tomorrow *smiles*.
