2009 Race for the Cure

Our Race for the Cure season is in full swing for 2009. You may remember that the name tags for our Race Committee last year were paper dolls and that I used the Cricut to design my name tag and those for the staff. Well, I was asked if I could be of help with the name tags this year. Ellen wanted to use a bra. Of course, my first thought was JenC's bikini card.

I found Jen's post and sent her a comment requesting the file and telling her why. It wasn't long before she sent it to me. I cut a sample that night and took it to the office. Everyone LOVED IT! Sherrye picked out a stack for the bras on Tuesday and I made my name tag that night. Our color this year is Plum and Sherrye chose The Paper Studio's Serendipity stack. The first meeting was Wednesday, so I didn't have time to cut them for everyone but had mine ready. I promised Jen that I would share my results, so here goes:

I cut the card in half, adhered the bra, added some punches (Family Treasures border punch from the circle set) for trim, cut my name using Jasmine and adhered it. We laminate them because they will be used until the middle of October. Emily laminated mine before I added the bling. Bling, bling, bling! I used The Paper Studio Gemstones (pink on the trim and middle of the "flowers" and clear heart to dot my i). We still have to add the clip.

Now to get busy cutting all 135+ for the next meeting. I was able to copy and paste so that I can cut 5 bras at a time and 4 bases at a time. Committee members get to put their own name tags together.

This was fun! Contact JenC if you're interested in her file.

Jill, your tag idea to use Jen's cut file was very right on - you made the tag look amazing! And what a perfect idea for the event in mind. A labor of love and dedication to do 135+ :) but BEAUTIFUL - Here is routing for you!
