It's #Cre8time... TAG - You're It! AMAZING Resin Present Tags with Tanya Ruffin

Christmas is a busy time, lots of presents under the tree, people tearing through packages to get to the goodies... that Christmas morning call, "hey, did you get my present?"

Wouldn't it be nice if they remembered your presents just by the wrapping, ribbon or the TAG?!

Well I have your solution!

My hubby and I have four cairn terriers. Yes, you read that right, FOUR! A few years ago I can across some cute cairn terrier pins. I bought two knowing one day I would do something with them. At the time I thought I would give one to my mom and one for myself. The other day I came across them and thought about using them to craft a tag. When I bought the pins I only had one terrier... 

So I found the best arrangement of the pins so all four dogs could be seen.

Then I taped a craft stick through the back so they
wouldn't move while I was making the mold.

I then slid the craft stick out after I placed the grouping into
the Amazing Mold Putty {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}.

I then used the Alumilite Pick Set to press the pins farther down into the Amazing Mold Putty

You really need to press it down so the Amazing Mold Putty raises up between the dogs.

Fill your mold with Amazing Casting Resin {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. I even mixed some Alumilite Black Dye for resin in this mix.

My first cast I attempted to make it the same color as my dogs. I also used some copper Rub 'n Buff®, but it didn't have enough contrast. I ended up painting the whole thing with black acrylic paint. 

Craft fail!

I used a Marvy tag paper punch for my package tag.

I used gold Rub 'n Buff® on the black resin dogs and glued them to the tag.

Some of my resin dog sets came out a darker black than others, but that is ok.

Now I just need to make about 30 more tags for Christmas presents so everyone will know which packages came from me!

"Don't you forget about me..."
(Sorry, I had an 80's moment)! 

The real deal!

Instead of just making resin pendants
and charms - turn them into a tag!
