How to Create a Tag from Acrylic

Hello creative souls...Martha Richardson here. By this time you have received your June Kit and hopefully broke into the supplies and started creating. I'm so excited to share with you today a project I made from the piece of acrylic plastic and the Dockside Picnic Alcohol Ink set that came with the June Kit from Frog Dog Studio. Here is the finished tag and this photo shows the translucent qualities of using it as a tag.

So let's get started. Why use alcohol inks...because they are awesome!

The hardest decision was what to do with the acrylic sheet. Once the lightbulb went on then I knew that I would turn it into a tag with some help from my Vagabond.

 I didn't end up using this metal token but here is the process I used to give it color.

So there you have it! There is enough of the acrylic sheet left to create a small gift tag. I hope you will give this a try...if you do let me know how it worked for you!
