    Need idea for classy homemade tag for homemade ornament

    I''m a newbie here so sorry if I put this in the wrong section!

    I am making crocheted ornament covers for Christmas presents (you place them over the standard Christmas ball ornament) and I want to make them with a really classy tag attached with my initials and the year (Kind of like the Lennox Snowflake that has a tiny tag with "Lennox 2007" on it). Any ideas on an inexpensive yet classy way to do this? I originally thought about getting a sheet of that metal that you can use a stylus to engrave and then cutting to size, but I think that will end up looking cheap.

    Any ideas??

    TIA!

    I live in Dallas, and there are several places you can go to buy silver beads, chain, charms, etc etc. You could buy small silver charms and have them engraved with whatever you want.

    What about tone on tone embossing? You could use a traditional embossing powder and heat gun or however they do it. Or I think they make a sort of embossing pen now where you just trace over the design. It's possible that I hallucinated that, but ask in the scrapbooking dept of your local craft store.

    i have used and embossing pen. it's not fantastic for fine detail. have you thought about shrinky-dinks? i know how that sounds.. but i made some that look super polished, as in professional. also, you can use embossing powder with them, or so says the instructional sheet that comes with the paper.
