Jingle Jangle Jamboree Tag

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
