Floss Ring Tags!!

Here's another try out with the tags! The first flower above is a part of one of the LHN design and the other one is from one of the U.K magazine.

You are right Christine about the plastic bit and hit it with the hammer. At first, it took me a while to find out how to use the plastic one enclosed with the eyelets.
Barbara i bought it from the shop: Witte Engel here on the island. I can get you one and send it to you if you cannot find it there.

Joined a mysterie SAL on one of the yahoo group here locally. It will take a long time before this will be finish as it's divided into 25 parts and this picture shows the first two parts. I am behind though as i've noticed the group has completed 4 parts already.

The whole morning we've been at the football fields for Chris. Thought it will be cancelled as it's raining though not heavily. They win three out of five games.
We have another company this weekend, Mels is staying with us too as his parents been for an outing. His two sisters are staying at their grandma's place. He's becoming a part of the family as he's been here for nearly a week last week too.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments.

wow! what great tags Mylene, I was going to try making one of these this weekend. Is the plastic piece in the picture for setting the eyelets? I've never saw one of those, I'm looking for something easy to work, as my hands are quite bad.

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

I'll have to have a better look around for the eyelets - they must have them here someplace. I'll ask at "my" craft shop the next time I pop by. ;) Thanks!

I am curious with the eyelet tool too. The ones I've seen are metal tool tat looks like a rod not that plastic ones..dat looks easier to use.
