My Craftsy group meets the last Wednesday evening of every month, and last time we were talking about making our own name tags that would not only give our names, but help define us, too. It's lovely looking at people's crafts and learning a bit about who they are! So I'm going to show you mine, and give you some hints on how to make one yourself.
1) Choose a shape. I chose round, because it is such a whole shape (or a hole shape!(; ). You can choose any shape you want because it needs to reflect who you are.
2) Gather your materials. This one is wide open. Maybe you want to sew yours, maybe to paint it, or stamp it. I wanted mixed media.
3) Go to it! Use the shape as a canvas to tell the world not only what your name is, but who you are as well.
4) Can other people tell something about you from your tag? I hope so.
|I used a small embroidery hoop; an old one with a bent-metal spring at the top.|

and I had covered it with Modge Podge.

was now protected.
