{back 2 basics} infarrantly creative

Miss Beckie is one talented girl, and so, so creative.  It is a delight to have her here today!

Hello BPP fans. I am Beckie from Infarrantly Creative, Knock off Décor and Roadkill Rescue. Yep, I am a busy blogging gal. Thank you Kierste for inviting me to be a part of the Back to Basics series. Since I am a mom of a new kindergartner I finally get the joy of understanding what “Back to School” means!
When you have children in elementary school everything needs to be labeled if you have the remote chance of seeing it at the end of each day. I tried some backpack tags from a label company and it lasted all of about three school days. My kindergarten son needed something a little more durable…enter the resin backpack tags.

2. Using a dog punch (I got mine from Punch Place Plus) punch out the labels.

3. Coat the dog tag with Mod Podge and burnish your printable tag on top. Let dry. Coat the label with two coats of Mod Podge to seal the surface. This is important to seal it or else the resin will bleed and discolor you tag.

4. Mix Envirotex Lite according to package instructions. Slowly pour the resin around the edge of the tags working your way to covering the entire piece. Let them dry for a full 24 hours.

5. Once cured drill 1/8” hole through the tag and dog tag hole with an electric drill. Then loop the ball chain through the hole and connect it onto your back pack or lunch bag. Yay you are guaranteed to get your stuff back once lost! The resin is extremely durable and creates a thick, glossy, plastic-like coating over your tag.

You could also use them as a necklace pendant or a zipper pull by lengthening or shortening the chain a little.
