Week of Halloween Tags - Day 1

I'm back with a week of Halloween tags!  I did this last year and it was a great way to use all those cute Halloween papers and embellishments I am addicted to buying (but never use!).  Today's tag is inspired by Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous and her Easy Halloween Mummy Tutorial (see it here).
Easy Mummy Tag Tutorial:
1. Paint a tag with either white paint or gesso
2. Glue a pair of googly eyes to the tag.
3. Using ribbon or cheesecloth, or in my case seam binding (that I scrunched and crinkled) glue the end to the back of the tag at the bottom - wrap the ribbon around the tag - leaving space for the eyes.  Glue the other end to the back at the top of the tag.
4. Spray the tag with glimmer mist to give it a little bit of a shimmer (I used the white chalkboard glimmer mist).  I covered the eyes with a piece of seam binding to try to keep them from getting sprayed - but they got sprayed anyways so I just wiped them off after. 
5.  Rub over the tag with distress ink (i used "old paper")
6. Embellish - I added a button to the bottom right corner.
Be sure to check back tomorrow and all week for more Halloween tags!

Very cute, you can't go wrong with mummies and ghosts since they don't have much of a face.
