EMBOSSED FABRIC TAGS
So how do you emboss fabric? Simply by adhering it to some card stock and then running it through your Big Shot using an embossing folder.
1. Get some self adhesive paper and peel off the top layer of 'film'.
2. Stick your piece of material onto the sticky side that you have just exposed.
3. Peel off the back layer and adhere your card stock.
4. Use a die cut to cut out a tag shape (or simply use a tag for the third step and fussy cut around the tag, as I did with the following example).
5. Stamp your image onto the fabric (I used Black Staz-On).
6. Put your tag inside an embossing folder of your choice and run it through your Big Shot machine.
7. Attach a ribbon, brad, twine or eyelet to the top part of the tag.
This last tag made from material didn't involve any stamping. I just used some left over fabric to make the tag. Unfortunately the embossing doesn't show up very well on the dark background.
Here's a little Christmas Tag made using a snowflake punch, some faux stitching and a bit of bling.
Lastly, don't forget the humble tag can be transformed by simple punching the edge for a decorative effect.
Well, that's it for now. It took a fortnight to post all the examples and I feel a bit 'blogged' out! I'll be back later tonight with another tag for the next Monochromatic Challenge at Dynamic Duos.
