Large Formica Tag #3


These large Formica tags can be pretty addicting. I am trying to get a dozen of them made and on bags of goodies by the second week of October for some girlie friends. I have only done about half a dozen. I would actually like to make about twenty, but we/me are thinking that may be wishful thinking.

I am hoping people will see these scattered about my blog and get inspired to make a few for themselves. The tags are free at your local hardware big box store. Just take a few at a time when you think about it. I actually got these giant ones from an art friend who was cleaning out her studio. They were on a big chain. She handed me a bag of goodies about three years ago and told me to do something with them. So Barb.... I am doing something with them. Finally.

What a great idea! I hope you don't mind if I out right steal your idea! If you do, just let me know, and I can use something other than a formica tag. I love you blog, and I am adding you to my blog list so I can see all of your projects! I am sorry about your foot and hope you are better soon. I am going to the hospital on Oct. 6th for major back surgery so I am trying to get some things done before and some homemade "kits" I can work on in bed.
