On the tags I used: Clearsnap’s Colorbox Cat’s Eye Ink Pads, and smooshed those different colors around, rubber stamps, polymer clay button I either sewed on with thread or fun wire, embossing powder, ribbon and brads.
Swaps need a good coordinator and most importantly committed participants.. one person can ruin it all. I’ve done a few, most are excellent, but a couple have fell through the cracks. I’m still waiting for the results of one; it’s been almost a year. People get busy and can see it through to the end. Now, I choose wisely or not at all.. lately it’s been the latter.
Here is another I did for ATCs. I made them out of polymer clay. Now, that was fun. The recipients were thrilled to get something so different.
Some, I stamped into the raw clay with rubber stamps then antiqued with brown paint or shoe polish, others were covered with decorated napkins once out of the oven. The others were covered with a sheet of millefiori clay canes. All of them have been embellished with clay buttons or beads.
I can’t help but use polymer clay thingamajigs on all my work. they don’t seem complete without one, two or ok maybe three.
Thanks for stopping by.
