Scrappy Dog Tags by Lori McClellan featuring Fancy Pants It's the Little Things

Scrappy Dog Tags

featuring Fancy Pants It's the Little Things
I found these blank dog tags at the craft store a while ago and I thought it would be fun to try and scrap them up.

I started by cutting a piece of paper the size of my tag.  I glued it on using Glossy Accents.  I distresed the edges using the Prima Rasp tool.

Next I cut another piece slightly larger than the dog tag and glued it to the back using Glossy Accents.  I distresses and rolled the edges.

I fussy cut some of the word art from the fancy pants papers and glued them on with glossy accents.

Next I covered the entire top with a thick layer of Glossy Accents.  Make sure that as you are applying it, that if you get a bubble, pop it or the bubble with dry on your piece.  Once you have it all covered, you will want it to sit somewhere it will be undisturbed so it can dry.  It will take several hours to completely dry.
You can see that I covered the tag that is sticking off the tag.  I covered it in the glossy accents and when it dries, it will be hard and able to stand the wear and tear of your necklace.

When it is dry you can put it back on the chain.  I added one of the Tim Holtz muse charms, and it looks so cute.  Now it's ready to wear.

I should note, that even though you don't have dog tags, the same technique could be used with a paper shape.  Once you add the glossy accents, it hardens nice and you wouldn't need the metal piece necessarily!

Thanks for checking out my post, I can't wait to hear what you think.
