Hi everyone! I hope you had a great week-end. We had full-on rain most of Friday, but I stopped at two nearby estate sales before driving to Troy (NY) to stock up my antique booth at Gristmill Antique Center. That meant Friday night’s family BBQ had to be held indoors, but the company, along with the world’s best potato salad (Gramma’s recipe made by my sweet sister) and apple pie (Betty Crocker’s recipe made by my sweet father) made it a very special night. Saturday my husband and I reserved for celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary (yippee!!). I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow when I show you the week-end’s vintage finds. Today I’m giving you the third installment of my Wool Sweater Series: Pumpkin Tags.
I’ve posted about making tags with my die cut machine before; I hope you’re not too bored with them. I start out by cutting some cardboard roughly the size of the die, spreading on some decoupage glue (you can use Modge Podge), and then laying the cut-to-size piece of sweater on top of the glue.
Here’s my Sizzix Big Kick machine with the tag-shaped die ready for my cardboard/sweater piece to go on top and be run through the press. You don’t have to wait for the glue to dry because running it through the machine applies so much pressure to the cardboard and textile that you’re pretty much guaranteed cohesion.
Here’s a photo of one of my grain sack tags after being cut by the die.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
