Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas #9 and #10


I held off as long as I could on #9, but it made me think. The 'film' is a graphic I found on the internet and printed in grayscale on vellum. All the rest of the adaptations are obvious, I believe.

#10 turned out to be a disappointment, but it's because I have only metal flashing tape, which isn't nearly wide enough for a tag. If I did it over, I would probably apply the tap across the width of the tag rather than the length. As it is, there is a very unattractive vertical line on the tag. No little attacher here, but x's drawn with a gel pen. (Oh, I also burnished a little too hard!)

So I'm caught up, just about 3 hours before Tim posts #11.

Thanks for the tip with the flashing tape - that is what i plan on using since I don't have any of the metal... I think both of your tags look great!

I love both your tags, Evenlyn. And I'll even go so far as to day I love your metal flashing tape tag better than Tim's. (If he reads your blog, I know I'll never win any prizes lol!) I just thought his was too busy. Yours turned out great!
