Faux Leather Bag Tag | Silhouette Faux Leather Paper
As the time for the kids to return to school gets closer it’s time to get school bags sorted.
With this in mind I have made a bag tag to make it easy for a child to identify their bag.
The next step was to cut a section for the name of the child. I used a rounded corner rectangle.
I also added holes for stitching – see this blog post for instructions on how to do this.
My machine is a Silhouette 3 and this gives you the ability to cut several different materials in one go as you can change the line colour and set the correct cutting settings for each material according to that colour.
Another helpful feature in the new software is the ability to add ‘sticky notes’ to a design which act as reminders.
I allocated cut settings by the colours I had chosen and used ‘Heavy Cardstock’ for my piece of acetate.
I put a pink glitter sketch pen into the right tool holder and off it went.
All my pieces were cut/sketched in one go with the machine pausing to change settings automatically.
To construct my tag I used strong clear glue to stick the acetate to the inside of the name side.
I heat pressed the phrase onto the other piece and used shiney pink embroidery floss to stitch the two pieces together.
I found a little strap (from an old luggage tag) and after adding the name card my tag was complete.
