Bird tags

While the girls aren't allowed to watch TV on a Tuesday and Thursday I am trying to ban myself from the computer in that time too. Actually I try to ban myself from the computer during the time the girls come back from school and when they go to bed (about 4 hours) but it doesn't always work especially if I know I am due to receive information via email etc. Anyway, while the girls were busy with the plasticine on Tuesday I got busy with my tag punch.

These tags are made from a pack of British bird playing cards. Some of the cards were missing and so it couldn't be used for it's intended purpose. I rescued them from a jumble sale where they were 10p (due to them not being usable) and have punched them into tag shapes. They still need attaching to their cardboard backs (which could be interesting as they are already quite thick!) and they need string etc. I'm hoping to get them up soon into my shops but I do have 50+ items in my Flickr account waiting to be uploaded to my shops. I'm going to try and get those up before I make/list anything new but we will see how that goes eh?

Ah, love these tags! I'm trying to keep off my laptop a bit too - it's been quite a pleasant break from technology!
