Colorful Glass Tags, 2014 Tableware Thanksgiving Series

So here we go again, the first of a series of tableware accessories to throw the best Thanksgiving dinner EVER!.
 Make this colorful glass tags that your guests can take home to brag about.

Even though we do not celebrate Thanksgiving here in Chile, I always remember when I was an exchange student in Ohio 22 years ago, and we went to my host grandma's house for Thanksgiving.
For these tags I used a double layer of regular 65 lb cardstock to make them sturdier.
The back panels are inked with Distress Inks on Ranger blending tool, to make the front panel pop.
I stamped the front panels with the Meadow Inkadinkado clear stamp with matching Tsukineko's VersaMagic Ink.
I also stamped the little butterfly that comes with this set using VersaMagic White Cloud Ink.
 The panel pieces are designed with a slit on the top part to put it through the glass stem.
The lines on the letters and the faux stitching in the front panels are included in the file. I used a Signo Uniball silver gel pen. (The pen does not fit, but I used the technique explained on a previous post)

Finally, I popped the letter with mounting foam to give it dimension.
I guess it would be a good idea to spray them with clear acrylic sealer so they last as a souvenir.
This first file comes with all the tags up to letter P. I'm not finished yet, but I promise to have them ready by the end of the week.

  1. Import in DS
  2. Resize to 3 inches.
  3. Change the function to write for the first two layers.
  4. Attach the letter lines to the letter shadow
  5. Attach the faux stitching to the front panel.
  6. Cut
  7. Enjoy!
