Make the Embossed Metal Tabs

Pin It! I can't believe this is my 100th post!!! It's only been a few months since I started my blog. I'm shocked I have done this many posts in such a short time. Here is the promised video tutorial on how I created the embossed metal tabs that are on the Inventory Book. You only need a few items to create them... Cuttlebug with embossing folder of your choice. I used the Tim Holtz Patchwork folder by Sizzix. You will also need some alcohol inks (I used cranberry, mushroom & espresso) and an applicator, self adhesive metal sheet (Quickutz), McGill file tab 3" punch, piece of card stock, and adhesive. Enjoy!

You can get the Quickutz adhesive backed metal HERE

Thanks for sharing your methods with us. I wonder if this could be done using Tim Holz "alternations on the edge" file tabs die and then put through the embossing plate of choice. What do you think? I don't have the McGill tab punch so it would be great to use what I have.

Great tutorial, I HAVE to get one of those tab punches now! BTW - I always put those big punches on the floor and stand on them to punch. Works well! Congrats on your 100th post!

Wow 100 posts!!! That means I've still got a bunch to read. I am sure enjoying your expertise and love all that you do. Gotta get some of that metal with my 40% off HL coupon! Now I also want that TH folder... so many ideas!

Love this idea. FYI local hardware stores have metal tape (Heating duct tape) that comes in different widths that would be perfect for those tags (less waste, and cheaper). Heading off to watch the other video on the folders so I can have two projects to work on!!
Thanks Crhstie
