Hello, Frank!

  I've been busy in the craft room again...with inspiration from Pinterest, of course!

This cute tag came about for a weekly challenge over on the Cardmaker Cardswaps forum, this week, it is to make a tag for the upcoming holidays.

After seeing the above linked version, I set out to make my own Frankenstein tag...

Its really as easy as it looks, so give it a try!


  • chipboard tag base
  • green cardstock to cover  tag
  • green distress ink
  • black marker
  • black buttons
  • brads (for bolts)
  • black burlap scrap
Here's a closer look at the neck brads...

And the button eyes and burlap 'hair'

Steps to make:
  • Cut chipboard tag. (I cut mine 5" tall by 3" wide.)
  • Cover tag with green cardstock
  • Distress cardstock with green ink
  • Glue on button eyes
  • Draw mouth. (I penciled mine in first to be sure of placement.)
  • Glue burlap 'hair' in place, trim to fit edge of tag, trim bangs.
  • Glue on neck bolt brads
  • That's it!
Thanks for looking!
