More Tags

Edited to add: I used Fellowes Laminating Pouches for Luggage Tag with Loop (size 2.5 x 4.25 inches) which I purchased from Wal-Mart.

My daughters are really liking these tags so now I've made one for each of their backpacks and one each for their lunch bags. My youngest's favourite colour is now orange - it used to be pink - so I ended up using colours on her favourite Tilda to the left that I don't usually put together. As for the Tilda on the right, you'll notice some sparkle on her wings - Yipee! I used the Sakura Gelly roll pen - another experiment - and it worked after letting the ink dry for an hour. There is a tiny tiny bit of smudging on the left side but not too bad.

My little angels each picked the Tildas they wanted on their tags and I think they turned out pretty well. The most important thing is that they're happy with them.

Now onto my next project which is to decorate some small notepads with Tildas for them and put them in their backpacks as a surprise. We're still on vacation so I'm working on these projects at night when my little ones are asleep. Of course, I'm also tired and it's taking longer to finish. So I won't have them done for a few days but check back later in the week.

Have a great day,
