DIY Dog Tags 4 Ways – Stained Glass, Image Transfer, Stickers, Drawn from eCrafty.com

Anne went to town with eCrafty.com’epoxy dome dog tag stickers. She used #markers, #stickers, #origami paper and image transfer to create a range of effects that can be adapted to anyone’s style and skill level.  You can add these creations to #lanyards, #key-rings, #luggagetags, #zipperpulls and even #pendant #necklaces.  So fun and so creative. #dogtag #diy #crafts #campcrafts #summercrafts #epoxystickers #diystickers #gifts #personalized #etsy #handmade #ecrafty www.eCrafty.com

The epoxy dog tags have a hole at the top, so when you finish personalizing them, they are ready for your lanyard or key chain or cord or ball chain necklace. So many possibilities!  To see each of these techniques in more detail, along with a clickable supplies list, keep reading below!

How to make it:

The Marker Dog Tags were created by using a black permanent marker to trace a magazine ad onto the exposed sticky surface of the dog tag and then filling it with colored permanent markers. Anne found that when she used water-based markers the ink didn’t dry.

The Stickers and Origami Paper Dog Tags were made by applying stickers to the dog tag clear epoxy sticker, outlining the stickers with markers and backing them with complementary origami paper.  See above, and the variations below. Add a jump ring  and simple ball chain short loop for luggage tags, or longer for a quick necklace.

The Permanent Marker Dog Tags let your drawing skills shine.  The examples (above and below) were made by drawing on the exposed sticky side of the epoxy dome dog tag with permanent markers and then finishing the back with our 801Z laminating film. Anne also added a drawn border by drawing on the top of the finished dog tag.
