Default Cheap Ribbon Buckle

My neighbor told me last night to make a cheap ribbon buckle
you would emboss a soda can tab!!!
You hammer down any rough sides and then emboss to the color of your choice and it makes a great Ribbon buckle!


Who would have thought!!!!

I drink so much Diet Coke in the can I could be a case study.

I'll start ripping off the tabs & try it! Thanks for the tip!!

I saw this idea in the new Creating Keepsake magazine (Nov. 2004). It shows you step by step how to do it on page 42 under "Tips and Tricks". This is a really cool idea.

How do you get the embossing powder to stick to the tab?

I just heated the tab with my embossing gun. The heat on the metal tab made it hot enough for the embossing powder to stick to it. I heated, dunked, heated the embossing powder, heated again, dunked again, and heated again. That way I made sure I got good coverage. I used the reverse tweezers from the crafer's tool kit to hang onto the tab. That left a couple of areas unembossed so it placed the tab down on scratch paper with the tweezers and heated the remaining areas.

HTH

Thanks for the idea~ my school collects these as a fund raiser, so I'll have to secretly save mine - wouldn't want people to know I'm saving them for stamping over donating them!!!

GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the 2nd coolest thing I've learned this week!

So, is the Nov 04 issue of CK worth buying off the rack? I don't scrap so I don't subscribe ....

I don't see why you couldn't just squish the tab into versamark pad or embossing pad that should get the powder to stick!
I'd just be careful after you have the powder on it!!!
