Stamp-peding My Way Through Life

Special Moments Tag Book

Robin9 Comments
Happy Heartfelt Wednesday everyone! Last Wednesday Heartfelt announced their latest release, the Everyday Heroes Collection! I just love the color pallet in this collection; very vintage and masculine.  I have been wanting to make a mini tag book for quite some time and this collection was just the "push" I needed. I included ribbon and lace from my grandmother's sewing box, copies of vintage ephemera I collect AND a picture of my grand-aunts, Lydia and Sadie!

Using a decorative corner punch, cut the lower two corners of each tag. Sponge the edges of your tags front and back. Lay your 4 tags next to each other with an approximate 1/8” between each tag and, using washi tape, attach tags together. Here is a visual for this step:  http://www.oneluckyday.net/2014/08/reminder-to-your-heart.html. Trim tape and repeat on back side. Cut eight (8) pieces 2 3/4” x 6” from the Everyday Heroes Paper Collection, sponge edges and attach to tag book.

Cut 2 flourishes, 2 photo corners and 1 Lace Border from dark brown paper, lightly highlight with Gold 3D Stamp-Paint. Attach flourishes to tags as shown (if you would like to insert a small picture or tag, only glue the outer edges). Trim Lace Border to fit, apply glue along top, bottom and long side only.
