After receiving one on my crafting energy capsules from my fearless leader in Ribbon aka the Ribbon Lady...I was inspired by the "bright assorted tags, Core'dinations". So I dug out EVERY May Arts Ivory and Black ribbon and picked through every embossing folder I owned and off I went.
I was a little concerned about embossing with the eyelets already in place but they are a soft metal so they accepted the lovely patterns right along with the card stock! wohoo
sooo pretty all embossed and ready to distress!!!!
Using the great distressing tool (it's a foam core sanding block with a hook and loop to attach sand paper pieces) to highlight the fact that these tags are white core (hence the Core'dinations name, tricky right!?)
So this is the point that I actually realized the issue I was dreading with the eyelets...as I pulled some of the ribbons through, granted I have put 3 largish ribbons through each eyelet, the eyelet came loose. I solved the dilemma with a quick glue dab of MONO Aqua liquid glue under the eyelet and wham. fixed!
Once all was well and dried it was on to make these fabulous tabs the divider for this journal that I hope to one day feel brave enough to start using...why is it that I am intimidated by the empty page? (I used Tom-bow new Extreme Adhesive to securely affix them) I would love to be one of those amazing art Journalers who have thoughts and ink drawings with water color and tremendous amounts of artsy talent, so one day I aspire to be worthy to write in this fun journal.
As for now I added a little Keep Calm and Carry on with my old school hand press style label maker....and maybe we will add a little love one step at a time to make this journal the one I want it to be.
Alright this was fun...I almost feel like having a contest! Hmm maybe I will!!!
Alright here it is ... I will later add the details of EVERY ribbon I used to make this project BUT If you guess how many ribbons I used by November 7th you will win a set of tags! (winner will be chosen from the right answers or the persons closest to the number.)
They will be the small size to put on gifts and such but they will be darling and you will love to give a gift with these pretty puppies on it.
So Guess the number of ribbons used and you could win designer tags! GO
