Dog Tags for a Mom Who is Dog Tired

Hey People!! Just a quick post tonight as I am TIRED.  This is the last of the 8th grade campaign propaganda for the Sergeant of Arms office that my oldest kiddo is running for.  I made dog tags (yes, the kiddo got a "by" on this one as he was studying for a science test.  Seems to me that tests out rank making paper dog tags!).  Very simple, yet pretty cool, if I do say so myself!

I cut  2"  x 1 1/8" strips of silver metallic paper from DCWV and rounded the corners with my corner rounder.  Grabbed a stack of them and used my Cropadile to punch the center hole.  Wrote Sergeant of Arms on one tag and Kiddos name on the other tag.  Tied some silver cording (retired from SU).  The end.  Easy peasy.

Friday is the elections.  Kiddo has to give a speech, which he is sooo not thrilled about. Keep your fingers crossed for him, please!

I hope to actually have a "grown up" project to share by the weekend!! But, like I said previously, I use the kiddo projects to justify all my "stuff" BHWHAHAAAAA!!

Thank for dropping by again!!  Till the next time......



Yep, you nailed dog tags! Really cute idea and I love your justification for your "stuff".
