|My favorite heart stamp|
The stamp I used is from Rubber Stampede (it's about 2" by 2"). I like the airy look of the filigree design, but you can use any heart stamp you like. Embossing--one of my favorite rubber stamping techniques--gives the hearts their shiny finish. You'll need an embossing inkpad, embossing powder (I used silver and iridescent), and a heat embossing tool, which looks like a hair dryer but gets much hotter.
|Embossed hearts cut out and ready for eyelets and ribbons.|
To make the embossed hearts into tags, I cut them out, leaving a border of paper around the edges, and added a metal eyelet to the top of each one. You'll need an eyelet tool and small hammer for that, but it's worth the effort and noise. The eyelets really give the tags a professional finish. Just thread ribbon or cord through the eyelets and your heart tags are finished. Now you can hang them around the house or tie them onto a box of chocolates for someone special.
