You know when you get an idea in your head and just have to try it out.
Well that happens to me a lot. Funny thing is, I usually end up forgetting about it before I get to trying it out.
Ya, ya I know, I should get my sketch book and jot them down.
But my book is down in my scrap/craft room. So what I have been doing is jotting them down on sticky notes, as I always have them in all over the house.
This is one of the ideas I had while I was working last week.
And I wrote it down this time ;)
The idea was to make tags with my chipboard scraps.
It is a tag made only with scraps.
I have so many little pieces of thick book board or chipboard left over from my mini albums and wanted to use them up.
Also lots of scraps, and I mean lots of scraps.
Chipboard letters that I have NEVER used.
Adhesive and of course my hand made tissue tape :)
I cut the chipboard with my Tim Holtz on the edge die, but you don't have to.
Cover the chipboard and the chipboard letter circle with paper, ink the edges and then punch holes in the tag and the circle (so it looks like a button).
Add the embellishments and its good to go :)
Here is the back of the tag.
There is room to write a sentiment or just To: and From:
I have so many small pieces of chipboard, I can probably make one for every gift I give this Christmas.
I was going to make a Christmas one, but I wanted to share it on my blog....and nothing Christmasy til December.......wonder if I can last till then, lol.
Hope you all had a creative day :)
