Epic Birthday Tag

post signature

My oldest son loves the clothing brand Epic Threads and when I was cutting the tag off of his back-to-school clothes recently, I noticed what a great design the tag had. I immediately thought it would make a great inspiration piece for a Good Look Cookbook post!

October is right around the corner and it's a busy birthday month for my family. My brother, sister, and Dad all have birthdays within the first week of the month. With birthdays on my mind, I thought the clothing tag inspiration piece would translate perfectly into a birthday tag for these upcoming birthdays.

The ingredients are pretty basic for this one. I just drew a variety of shapes (tag, square, circle) and drew a dotted line.

I used 3 different fonts - a grungy type font, a typewriter font, and a specialty font. I used Dirty Socks Skinny for my grungy font. You can download it here. I used Courier Bold for my typewriter font. This comes standard with most computers. And for my specialty font, I used Amerika. You can download that here.

After gathering my ingredients, I composed my tag, following the basic feel and design of the inspiration piece, writing my own birthday wishes to replace the clothing description text.

And here is my finished tag ... all ready for me to attach to the gift that I still need to buy for my brother!
