The tags were made using the Cubs colors, which I was excited about because they are so "All American" looking. All of the candy seemed to match better as well! LOL! I had originally started making cards, but yesterday was one of those crazy days, so only tags got made. I used a SU! set called "Sporting" to stamp the #1 image, I used Star Prints and All-Star Team from Papertrey Ink for the penant and star image and then finished it off by stamping the word coach using a really, really old alphabet stamp from PSX. I punched out large circles out of kraft cardstock and then used the feather stitch on my sewing machine to make the baseballs. The baseball buttons were the finishing touch. They were one of those random purchases a year or so ago and when I was making these, I was so glad I had them.
Yes...I could have added more bells and whistles, but I was truly running out of time. The coaches appreciated it and said thanks numerous times. Now I am happy to take a bit of a breather before the real fun starts....FOOTBALL!!!!!!
