1. Adhere book paper to tag.
2. Stamp tag with multi-star rubber stamp (Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz collection G4-1471)
3. Glue or staple a piece of a vintage measuring tape to tag.
4. To make shield shape you will need a piece of paper, a ruler and a pencil.
Draw two vertical lines 1 3/8" apart in the center of a piece of paper.
Using a pencil or pen trace around the shape on a piece of chipboard, flip over and trace the other side.
NOTE: The needle must fit through the center of the pearls/beads to be able to sew them on. You will use the same thread for all the sewing so make sure your needle is double threaded 12" long.
do not cut the thread. Use your shield to test the size of the cheesecloth before proceeding.
Do not cut the thread.
now cut the thread.
If you go back to the picture of the complete tag at the beginning of the post you can see I added a small jewelry tag. That tag is on the left in the picture below. I stamped it with a Stamping Up stamp I had here at the house but I thought, that's not going to help you. So, I found that the Avignon stamp set that you need to complete the calendar has a No. stamp. It is part of a larger stamp, so I just inked the part I needed to stamp the bitty tag. It worked perfectly. The o in the stamp is not complete (on purpose) so I filled in the top of the o with a pen. You could even add the dot like the original if you wanted.

I am leaving for Deb's tomorrow to prepare for teaching (mixed in with a little shopping) on Saturday. I thought I would show you the tool list/schedule that went out to all of the ladies coming to the class. Love it, want to marry it.
I am sure there is a future class in there somewhere. I'll have to wait and see on that one since my brain can only get to Nov 6th right now.
I have two more tags prepared to post this week.
Wed - No. 15 and Friday - the Merry Christmas plaque a fitting end this little escapade. I also have a picture of all the number pins needed for the board. The instructions for the pins are already online from last year.
So have a great week and we'll see you back here on Wed for tag 15.
