Tags for Father's Day

I'm chilling out tonight after a 5 hour demo at a local craft shop today.  It was all about tags and you will see quite a few posts over the next few days with some more examples.  Here's just a small snippet of a couple of Father's Day tags that I made.

                                           
I discovered quite by accident that if you pushed the loop end of the doubled ribbon through the back of the tag, you can make a tie.  You need to cut the ribbon a little over two lengths of the tag.  

Both tags feature sentiments from the Flourishes Stamp Set called, A Guiding Light.                           
                                          
Some kitchen twine was threaded through the top and a brad used to complete the Father's Day tag.


This one was cut using the largest tag in the Spellbinders set and covered with Kaiser Craft patterned paper from the Le Chateau collection.  I have used ribbon from SU for both examples.

Thanks for stopping by,

These tags are awesome Bron. The little ties are so cute & I ♥ the retro orange "shirt" with the denim tie, that's so cool! :)

Very clever Bron! I particularly like the top tag with the lovely Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I am sure all those who attended thoroughly enjoyed what you had to share.
