another tag, on a different bag...

...but still featuring my current favorite tool: justrite's 2 3/8" stamper with a font for making phrases around the edge. i've found a new way to use it: as a photo frame! so now my tags and cards can not only feature custom phrases tailored to their recipients, they can have a sweet little face on them, as well.

like, say, nephew matthew, perhaps, whose second birthday is merely a week away?

it turns out you can cut a perfectly fitted ring inside the phrase using a 1 3/4" punch, and a perfect circle outside the phrase with a 2 1/2" punch. i hand cut the black and white ring using decorative scissors, and mounted the whole thing on yet another circle, this one made with a 3" punch. finally i hung the tag on my gift-bag using a 7 gypsies bookring adorned with some ribbon scraps and WOOHOO...even young matthew will know immediately that this is *HIS* gift!

oh yeah, did i mention it's double-sided?!

...because you can never have too many pictures of a lad who's THAT CUTE, can you??!

(complete materials: 2 3/8" stamper with font by justrite; patterned papers: basic grey & imagination project; circle punches: ek success & marvy; inks: staz-on & colorbox; pen: zig; book ring: 7 gysies; miscellaneous ribbon scraps; plain kraft gift-bag from michael's; adhesive: tombow mono runner)
