This clone of Tag Letters is an outline font to allow colouring in.
Print the letters on thick paper, then colour them in, cut out with the loop for hanging (without the loop for gluing or as table decoration etc.) Pierce the loop and thread ribbon or yarn through if you want a hanging decoration like a gift tag, or used to write messages to hang in a window.This is a clone of Tag Letters

Perfect time to offer a font for the coming festive days: a set of fun letters designed to hang from a greeting card, gift-wrapped item, window, festive tree, etc ;)
The courageous user might print the letters in different colours on an A6 size card and cut out to use like a real gift tag.
The less manual user might prefer to type a message using letters of different colours, pierce the loops to add ribbons so that the inscripted sheet can hang from a parcel, flutter inside a window frame, decorate a bunch of flowers or add something extra to a greeting card... feel free to clone :)
Happy End-Of-Year celebrations !

A tribute to Josef Albers: inadvertently inspired by saberrider and afrojet.
This font totally happened by accident. Recently, saberrider created steep, which uses a 2.0 x 1.11 filter setting to smoothly blend the quarter-circle bricks into the triangles. After saberrider created his experimental variable scale fontstruction, it lead me to revisit an abandoned work I did from last year that was done in a similar scale. After getting over the initial disgust of looking at the dismal failure, I started tweaking. Then I decided to tweak the letters instead. It became apparent that I could create a stencil type font that also looked like Josef Alber's font. Coincidentally, Saberrider also has a variation with fontstract,
and of course, that Stewf guy has his own family of Leaflets. ;-) Afrojet's sessions came into play in creating some of the letter forms, especially the numerals. The final filter setting became 1.638 x 1.08, which created a nice fusion of the curved and triangular bricks, but was also naturally inclined to necessitate the vertical divide on each glyph. The rest flowed rather easily from there. Here's to more happy accidents. =)
The sample is also a tribute to Alber's color theory, showing the names in identical colors, which, when juxtaposed over contrasting colors tricks the eye into thinking the bottom name is darker than the top.
The following Josef Albers quote can relate to all things creative, like fontstructing, not just color:
"It should be clear by now that our way of studying color does not start with the past - neither with works of the past nor with its theories.
As we begin principally with the material, color itself, and its action and interaction as registered in our minds, we practice first and mainly a study of ourselves.
Thus, we replace looking backward by looking first at ourselves and our surroundings, and replace retrospection with introspection."
- Josef Albers
