Tuesday Taggers No 3


The challenge this week was to alter a clothes or similar label, I really liked the idea of this challenge but wasn't sure what to use didn't really think I had anything suitable. Then last week I just happened to be in Costa Coffee (for a change!) and I sat at a table that hadn't been cleared up yet, so I did the usual thing of taking the tray of dirties & putting it onto the next table (also uncleared) and there on the table was a tag off a bag of Costa mini muffins, it was just calling to me, so I picked it up & surreptitiously put it into my handbag, it was destined for the rubbish bin otherwise!

I forgot to take a before picture, but it was just a light brown label with the words Mini Muffins on the front, I inked it up with SU! inks Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip & Summer Sun using a sponge dabber. The picture & word is from some fabric I bought ages ago at a craft fair when I was going to try making fabric cards, (made one & the rest of the material is still in my craft room) so I dug that out, stuck it onto some sticky backed plastic, cut it out & raised onto the tag with SU dimensionals. I've kept the original ribbon on so the coffee theme all ties in. That's my first ever altered item & I'm really rather pleased with it! LOL

Great tag. Reminds me of the time I was pilfering the tab from around the wrapped silverware at Red Lobster....they made the cutest card later. Funny was speaks to stampers.

Jan this is brilliant, wish my first attempt had been as good. I've been looking at fabrics in my local craft shop, thinking there must be a way of using them and now I have the answer!
Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Taggers
