I promised a Disney tag RAK to some friends over on Disney Scrappers, and I wanted to make one that will easily go on a Disney Scrapbook page. One of the friends is here in So Cal and goes to Disneyland often, so I felt safe making a tag that will go with pictures taken at the Jingle Jangle Jamboree back in Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland.
I used a #8 kraft tag and did the Tim Holtz Distress ink and texture fade embossing technique to make the tag look like distressed wood. Then I cut out the title using Echo Park's This and That paper and Tim Holtz Inside Out alpha die.
I'm going to be honest here -- Sizzix, the ejection foam you use on these detailed dies really sucks. It was a complete and total pain cutting these letters out! And it is such a simple alphabet. COME ON! You are a premier die maker, you should have developed a sturdier ejection foam by now! I don't know if this is due to manufacturing in China and getting crappy quality, or what, but this is not the first of your dies that I have noticed has this problem. You really need to get this fixed. And while I am on my quality rant, please bring the manufacturing back to the USA. You can do it and it is so much easier to monitor quality control and shipping problems.
I used the left over quilted paper from my last entry, to cut another ornament shape and then decorated it with an old holly punch, a tiny jingle bell, and just the letters from the Inside Out alpha.
I made a complete tutorial on how to make this tag, including the wood grain tag on Instructagram. You can see the step by step directions here.
This was such a fun little tag to make and I can't wait to use it on a layout. Yes, I know I said I made it for a friend as a RAK, but, well, I made TWO of them so I could have one too! ;-D
