Maybe a few of the older ones amongst you (tee hee).
This is what I have used to create my craft tonight:
It is, of course, a very dusty,old typewriter.
(And yes, it was one of my charity shop finds a while back, with the intention of doing something crafty with it!)
I was inspired to do this craft when I was looking through my massive blog list today and spotted this craft for a Father's Day present.
I decided to make my own labels using gold card:
Trouble was, this typewriter didn't like the thickness of the card much so kept slipping:
But I think it adds to the charm!
I used a template of tags which I drew around onto the card with a blunt point (the tip of my computer mouse pen!) and cut around each tag leaving a small border. I punched a hole in the tags and used a book ring to attach them to a massive brass key:
I need to back them with some thicker card to finish them off but I am generally quite happy with how they have turned out.
On Creative Flourishes you will find examples of my photography, mixed media artwork, cardmaking and general art & craft making. Hopefully I will inspire others (as others inspire me) to get creating too! I also include snippets of my family life with my husband and my two boys, aged 16 and 14.
