Move Over Rover and Let Jimi Take Over

Wow!  I had so much fun making these tags.  I am in a 60's swap and it took so long to figure out what to do.  Here's the photo and then I'll tell you all about it...

The Jimi Hendrix image is from an old t-shirt tag that I kept since hmmm...Derek was a Sophomore so about 2002/2003ish.  I kept it because how can you possibly toss out Jimi.  So I made copies at work and then put clear packing tape over it to make the packing tape transfer.  I tore and cut around the edges.  I bought the tie-dye paper at Hobby Lobby (half off sale!).  Covered a shipping tag with the paper, stamped the peace signs and word peace (both stamps from CTMH); glued down the image.  The flying heart stamp(s) are from SU!.  Added some bling and fibers to finish the tag.  I think I did a pretty good job for a 60's tag swap. 

Now I can't wait to see what I get back.


  1. Very retro and fun! Great job!
