I was trying to think of alternatives to more Halloween cards, and thought if I could somehow make a sturdy tag…my vision would come to life (insert evil laugh here…muahahahahah).
A trip down the stationary aisle at the dollar store led me to these self laminating pockets, made for business cards. A trip down the aisle of the craft supplies led me to a keychain ring…and so my tag was born!
Poor Frank, I had to cut off a bit of his feet, and then I punched a whole right through his head!
Oh well, it adds to the Halloween theme.
I cut my black cardstock to fit within the pocket, and added some Bo Bunny Boo Crew Halloween Paper to create the background.
Frankenstein is from the Wildflower Kids premiere release of Ghoul Friends, available at Stamp Happens. In the set you also get Rye as a vampire, and Violet dressed as a cat…how perfect will 3 of these little tags be!
I coloured Frank with my prismas and Baby Oil.
This is for my Godson Ethan…so what if he’s only 7 months old, since it’s laminated, he can us this on his Halloween Bag for a long time!
I punched the whole and inserted the eyelet with my giant Crop-o-dile and then added the keychain and some ribbons to match the paper.
I also wanted to add that if you missed my video tutorial about how to tie bows with wire ribbon, scroll down or click HERE; I wanted to mention if you want a larger bow you’re going to
1) make the tails longer
2) make the loops bigger
and 3) add more loops.
Let me know if you have any questions!
Ciao for now,
