Metal Embossed Tag

Continuing the metal theme I made a tag to put on the side
of the metal sketchbook.
It is a piece of tomatoe puree copper tube.
I embossed a pattern by drawing with an embossing tool
on the shiny side. 
Put some scraps of fabric on the back and sandwiched
this with a piece of water soluble dissolvable plastic, 
longer than the tag so I could stitch all round several
times and then made the frill by continually stitching up and down.
The plastic was dissolved with warm water and then
allowed to dry.
The frill will be a bit stiff until it has been in use for a while.
