Fabric Tool Holders

I saw an email post about cuffed bins a few day ago. From that post I got out my sewing machine and linen fabric to make these tool holders. I plan on making more for my Copic markers.

12 Tags of 2015 ~ May




I used my Vagabond to make a burlap and manila tag using Tim's tag die. I used my xyron to adhere the tags together. 
Next, I used Tim's layering stencil with texture paste on tag. Later after paste was dry, I used distress ink to color the numbers with ink blending tool. 
Walnut and burlap distress inks were used on burlap before adding other items to tag. 
I used three remnant rubs; it a wonderful life and both numbers on stamped image. Distress markers were used to add color to stamped image. Black distress marker was used around the finished words at bottom of tag. 
Crinkle ribbon was inked with distress stain. 
Tiny buttons were used with loop pins and attached to bow. 
I used Tim's newest tiny flower dies on this tag. A glue gun is the only way to finish the flowers as Tim suggested. I added a tiny bit of distress ink to each flowers on this tag. 
On the upper right and bottom left are photocopies from a vintage hang tag that was on a bolt of organdy I bought years ago. I used matte glue n seal over photocopied ephemera. 
I applied a ephemera rose postage stamp from 1995 on my tag and then sealed it with matte glue n seal. 
This is Tim's beautiful tag: http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2015-may/
I had fun making my tag! Thanks Tim for the inspiration!

2015 January Tag


Today I'm sharing a tag I made for 12 Tags of 2015 for January.
This is my short tutorial.
Postale tissue wrap was applied with Glue n’ seal on #8 manila tag and then using my finger I applied Chipped sapphire, Broken china and Salty ocean distress paint. A little spray of Brown spray ink was applied over tag with excess wiped off. 
I added chitchat, followed by Glue n’ seal over tag and then black soot marker underscoring quotes.
Pumice stone distress glitter was applied to die cut 2015 numbers and then applied to tag.
Watered down Distress white picket paint was used with stiff brush to apply a sprinkle of paint over tag. 
Salty ocean and broken china are used to color crinkle ribbon.
A mirrored star was added to tag with glue n' seal.

12 tags of 2014 for December


I love Tim's tag this month!
Tim ask if everyone has had a chance do a tag each month, for me I missed three months this year due to swelling on my legs and leg surgery from October 2013 thru November 28. In the last few weeks I've started feeling better and ready to get back into stamping. I hope Tim continues with the 12 tags of 2015 next year.

Check out Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 for December:

I wanted to buy the word script and deer after seeing Tim's tag, I check every shop in our area, they said they were out of stock. Other online shops were out of stock as well.


I used what Tim Holtz supplies I had in my stash to make my three tags for December.
I used Tim's festive greenery strip die, Stickles Distress Glitter, Distress Paints, Distress Inks and Industrial Stickers. If you have a chance to buy his Stickles Distress Glitter, do so you wouldn't be disappointed. I used his distress glitter on the deer, phrase and snowflakes. Distress paints to color deer, foliage, bells, snowflake and phrase. Distress inks to color trims.
I completed the first tag far right, I was disappointed using a black ink pad on background, sorry Tim I missed that step using a lighter shade, since I didn't have what Tim used, I inked my snowflake with archival black ink and stamped on copy paper and then on my tag. I had two deer and supplies already painted so I made two more tags, each one similar but different. I ran out of foliage when I worked on center tag. That is the one of our married granddaughters picked out as her favorite to put on her mantel.
Many layers of chipboard were used to make deer and snowflakes with my Cameo. I kept three deer and sent two deer to my mother. She calls me or I'll call her when Tim's tag is up on his website each month. I completed all the tags with a die cut called small easel by Tim Holtz. I love using this die it with my tags to make them stand up.
