Make It Monday #4 - Playing with Fun Foam

This week's Make It Monday challenge is to use fun foam on your project.

I had quite a hard time with this one. I think I was trying too hard to find some "out of the box" way to use fun foam. I wasn't sure fun foam and I were friends.

The embellishments I made with fun foam just didn't turn out the way I liked. In the end, I decided to make a tag out of it.

I cut out a tag using Tag Sale #3 and made a couple of interesting discoveries. First, the dots that outline the tag show up very well on fun foam. Second, those dots show up on both sides of the tag! Amazing!

Here's the front of my tag. I kept it simple and also used a piece of vellum that was leftover from a previous MIM challenge. 

Here's the back. Those dots showed up automatically. 

I think I'll be using fun foam to make more tags. They won't get crumpled up and they're less likely to tear. I guess fun foam and I are friends after all.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The tag looks wonderful made with the fun foam, great idea!

  2. I love how well the edges of the tag embossed on that foam; that shade of purple is fantastic!

  3. Colors are fantastic!
    And I love this tag...
    the way the embossing shows so clearly!
    I may have to give this one a try!

  4. It came out great!! Love the colors & the LL die!

  5. Hmm, this is really cute, but I was thinking I am not so fond of fun foam... but for a tag base, now maybe that is a great idea!

  6. Yayyyy!!!! **clapping hands** This is just one of the cutest things EVER, Michelle. I love it!

  7. I am so happy you figured this out for us all! What a great way to use the gobs of fun foam I have left over from my teaching days! What an adorable tag!

  8. Love how you combined the vellum challenge and this one. I didn't realize that the foam would take on the impression from the die so well! Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. That is really cute!! Love the colors too!! This is going to sound silly, but I have been so amazed at how the impression gets on the BACK of the foam too!! I even made my husband look at it I was in such awe!! It is like magic, lol!!
