I found these Darice blank tags in stars, hearts and circles at a craft store.
I added them to my scanner and scanned them in with a white sheet of paper on top of them so they would show up better.
I used the trace function in Make-the-Cut to trace in the shapes.
I then used the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder to draw the shapes out onto a scrap piece of paper.
Next I used some of the Zip Dry glue to attach the tags on top of my drawn shapes. The Zip Dry glue is like rubber cement and will rub away off of the back of your shapes when you are done. I let it dry for a minute so the shapes wouldn't move.
I then put the mat back into the Cricut machine the same way it was when I drew the shapes. I used the thin paths feature in MTC to make the fonts thin that I was using. (The black on my design is to hide my phone number, it is not on the actual pattern)
I inserted the Chomas Creations engraving tip and used multi-cut of 3 to engrave or etch the words into my tags.
This was tough to get a good picture of, and of course I had to blur out the rest of my phone number, but I hope you get the idea!!! I'm sure there are more types of tags out there you could do the same thing with! My new puppy will be wearing the heart one hehe! You could use this same idea for anything you want to either draw on, or engrave on. Click on the photos to see them even better.
