This is a tool you don’t often hear about but I came across on an American site while searching for something else, and just had to try it! It is a joy to use and adds something special to your projects.
The tool comes in a soft black drawstring bag, with full instructions that I have to look at each time to remind myself which way round the tag goes!
Making Memories Tag Curler in its own bag.
The tool folds down and clips together for storage
and opens when you want to use it.
To add a tag to a ribbon you first put the tag in the curler, point facing the M.
Then you thread your ribbon through your project, and place both ends across the tag in the Tag Curler.
Squeeze the Tag Curler handles together and your tag is attached but make sure it is going to end up the right way round before squeezing!
Ribbon with finished tag.
Tags are available in silver metal as shown with packs of several different sentiments or cut out shapes - I used a “Happy Birthday” tag on this card. You can also buy enamelled tags to use with this tool.
You can get this tool in the U.K. now and I sure it is going to be popular.
I have been card making since 2004, after being inspired by a friend who made her wedding stationery I came across Blade Rubber Stamps while working in London and bought a few bits, then I was hooked! Now I have a craft room full of stuff. I have always crafted things for nearly as long as I can remember - card making filled a need to make and finish things in very little time, and be able to give a little happiness to friends and family. I became a Granny in 2012, it is great! I am a qualified Management Accountant and I took early retirement from the Civil Service, and haven't looked for work since. I am challenge coordinator, DT member and point of contact for the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog, which is an unpaid job but fun.
By the way I moderate all comments so they don't appear right away!
I have started this blog to tell you what I have discovered about crafting. This is not everything there is to know as I am sure I still have a lot to learn and I find new ideas all the time, but I have been card making since 2004 so have picked up a bit of knowledge along the way and encountered pitfalls too.
If I get anything wrong please let me know and I will change it.
I wanted to keep this separate from my main blog so you don't have to search through any chit chat and trivia.
I have shown labels at the side of the blog so if you can't see what you want check and click on the label to take you there. I will be building this blog up on different topics gradually. I hope it helps someone and I would love to know if it helped you.
I have started gathering links to tutorials that I come across too, and forums where you can get information.
