I enjoy making tags because they use up scraps without taking up too much crafting time. The cute penguin Sizzix die (purchased at Ben Franklin Crafts) not only embosses, it cuts out the penguin too which saves you lots of tedious work. I suppose you could chalk in the colors or use color core paper with a sanding technique, but I wanted a deeper color. By wrapping the tip of a bamboo skewer with a bit of paper towel, I was able to fashion a mini Q-tip. With this homemade tool I applied black and red ink on the embossed areas of the penguin body and candy cane. For the feet, eyes and beak I just used Copic marking pens. I discovered that the Hero Arts Clear Stamp (from BFC) set had eye-catching graphics and worked well for tag making. As you are beginning the holiday season, take the time to craft some tags with your children or grandchildren and make some lasting memories. Merry Memory Making!
