It is nice to see Friday this week, though it has only been a short "working week" but nice to get the wine opened! It is banned during the week along with chocolate, crisps etc so Friday nights mark the start of the weekend for more reasons than you may realise.
I made a tag last weekend, but due to travels I did not get chance to put it on my bloggie so here it is for you to see.
This tag came about as I was ironing last Friday evening. The red fabric is a table cloth I made for a table that no longer exists and after having a bit of a clear out of my airing cupboard this and another table cloth were put on the side until I could think what to do with the fabric as I hate waste and knew these cloths could be reused. Also, on my craft room chair was a pair of black jeans that Hubby was throwing out and I just knew they would come in handy at some point. So an idea was born - make a "Recycled" tag.
The tag was made from the back of an art pad as I needed a firm tag to be able to adhere the fabric and not sag. The fabric was then adhered to the tag. I adhered a piece of black jeans to a piece of scrap chipboard (from the back of the notepads in work!) and then run through the Big Shot with a "Vine" die, which was then adhered to the tag.
Then I cut out both fabrics with the Tattered Florals die and pinned them together with a TH brad. However, this needed a little more "oomph" so I interspersed the layers with gold sheer ribbon.
The last step was to spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in gold over the whole tag!
Happy Crafting Weekend (if this rain keeps up then my plans for being outside tomorrow will be scuppered so it might just be a "crafting weekend")!!
