Tim Holtz’s new Tag Press is an easy way to add polish to your handmade tags. Insert it into the contraption and you’ll get metal rim tags that are crimped to perfection every time. For this project, we’re exploring three different ways to use these personalized tags in your everyday life to add an artful touch to everything you do.
Metal Rim Tags 3 Ways Directions:
How to Use the Tim Holtz Tag Press:
Trace a circle onto a piece of Artist Paper using the provided template. Cut out.
Place the circle into the metal frames. Work it in until the paper is sitting on the flat bottom of the frame.
Insert into Tag Press and push down on the lever.
If the first attempt didn’t flatten the metal rim all the way, insert at a different angle and repeat.
Note: I found it easier to hole punch the circle before putting it in the frame, but you can also hole punch it after it has been pressed.
3 Ways to Use Metal Rim Tags:
- Stamp each circle with a crown shape. Add metal frame with tag press. Tie each metal rim tag to a long piece of twine or ribbon to create bookmarks.
- Stamp numbers or initials onto the smallest circles. Add metal frame with tag press and tie to wine glasses as mini charms.
- Address your packages on a metal rim tag and tie to the top for a decorative and personalized detail.
