This will make a fantastic gift tag for a man, a teen, or a grunge-loving lady! I used the new Tim Holtz tag and bookplate die to cut the tag. It makes 6 1/8" x 3 1/8" tags! I think these are the size that Tim uses for his "12 Tags of Christmas." I used a bunch of inks and stamps to create a grungy background for my tag.
Then I used the Tim Holtz gadget gears die to cut some gears out of grungeboard. I inked those up with distress inks also. Aren't they super cool on this tag?! I stamped a ticket and attached it with a memo pin.
I used a grommet and some fibers to finish off the tag. Since I have a lot of "junk" showing on the other side, I should cut a second tag and glue it to the back to cover up the brads and whatnot. This tag will either end up on a card or in a bin of give-away stuff, so for now, the back is naked!
I am entering this tag in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. They asked for something shabby. And I'm entering it for Paper Sundaes as they asked for something for the boys. I start on the DT for them on Sunday, so stay tuned!
