Posh Jewelled Gift Tags

Jewelled Gift TagsI found this old broken bracelet in one of my craft drawers and thought .... hmmm, wonder what they would look like on a gift tag? Because they were quite heavy I realised that they would need a substantial base .... and then I had an Ulrika moment ……  and thought ….  my old faithful wooden dominos ....!!!
Jewelled Gift Tags..But, would you believe the dominoes were a fraction too wide ? .... Then I got to thinking again  …. what about The Dukes tools in the garage?? .... What I needed was a sander ....
Black and Decker Mouse Sander And …. I only found this baby sander didn’t I .... but, how shall I put it delicately,  it vibrated so hard, it was quite erm  ...vigorous  and I needed a firm hand to steady it!! However, it did the trick and domino fitted perfectly between the bars either side of the bracelet section.
Bejewelled gift tagsI stuck the picture side of the domino down on to some gold card and cut round them. Then all I had to do was glue the jewelled section onto the gold side with E6000 glue, and drill a hole for the gift tag thread.  Done and dusted!  They would look luvvvvverrrly on a parcel wrapped in black paper!.

Very luxurious looking - little bit of an Egyptian feel to them I think. Jenx
