Here are two variations on the same Cricut cut in shrink plastic. Both tags were made with the word (dream) traced with a Cricut marker.  The first tag also had the word cut out.

Dream Tag

Dream Tag - Side View

The back was painted with Jacquard Lumiere (Pearl Turquoise) diluted with water, then dabbed on with an old painbrush.

Dream Tag - Back View

The word & the outside edge of second tag were traced with a Cricut marker, but only the outside edge & hole to attach the tag were actually cut.

Dream Tag 2

Both tags are beautiful. In fact, I still haven’t decided which one I like more. As far as making the tag goes, the second tag was easier. The first tag required moving the inside details of the word into place before they finished cooling.

Dream Tag 2 - Back View

The second tag was painted with Jacquard Lumiere (Pearl Turquoise) and Tsukineko dye ink (Celeste Blue) diluted with water.

I also saved the cutout word from the first dream tag, painted it with the diluted Celeste Blue & put it in the toaster oven with the tags.


Dream - Side View

The letters came out perfect, especially since they’re all less than an inch tall. Now I just have to make sure I don’t lose them.
