Discover tag

If you like making tags then why not make one for Dad for Father’s Day? My ‘Discover’ tag could be given as it is with a message on the back or be made into a card.

Using any of the pointing finger dies can be useful if you want to emphasize something or to simply add dimension or a feature.

Here I’ve added the moustache under a word eyelet.

When making tags it’s sometimes possible to exceed the working area of the tag to add more dimension and interest.

I’ve also used a texture fade of distressed dots inked over with a coordinating colour to add more texture.

One of Tim’s tissue tapes is a roll of the pointed finger which serves to tie items together pictorially.

I love the clock key die, it can be used on so many things.

I also like to use charms on chains.
Happy Father’s Day to all you Dad’s out there, we hope you have a lovely day!


  1. Smashing tag, perfect for Fathers Day, love the Tim stamp against the background stripes. X

  2. Love the colours you've used on this - I've been used to seeing the Time Traveller all monochrome, but he looks great here!

  3. Such a clever use of colour and way to combine these elements Chris. Hugs, Jenny x
