This was another fun tag! I was feeling very lazy and really liked his example, so I pretty much copied Tim's exactly. The main difference is I used metal tape from my friends at RockCandy Studios. It was just a bit shy of the full width, so I added little strips to the edges.
I didn't have the pens so I just used alcohol inks, a little alcohol, and a paintbrush. I think it worked just fine! I used a black Copic marker to do little stitches since I didn't have the stapler. They look much less dorky in real life! For some reason they really stand out in the pic.
I will share one tip that my friend Cyndi had: We were discussing the tag and she said, of course you can use your Cuttlebug to do the embossing. I was like - !!!! - I had totally forgotten about using it to do the smooshing. I shimmed it up with about three pieces of fun foam and it worked great. I did a tiny bit of detailing with my stump, but most of it was done with the CB. Great tip Cyndi!
