Mini Tag Album

Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to share my first mini tag album made from a 12x12 pc of design paper.  

I'll probably embellish it a bit more but I wanted to show you the basic design!
The poetry cards are from a free digital collage sheets site
She has some really beautiful sheets!
I based my cover on the new sketch Maya created
for our Digital Tuesday Challenge this week!!
The tags were created using a Spellbinders die (Label four).
The album itself is made from a 12x12 piece of double-sided
patterned paper. (K&Co) 

  1. a full 12x12 sheet is folded in quarters & scored.
  2. with the folds running vertical, fold the sheet in half horizontally
  3. trim down to create pockets.
  4. glue outer edges to secure. ( I ran a thin bead of glue along each of the score lines too)
  5. the tags are cut at 2.5 inches wide. 
The length of the tag can be customized to fit your images, tall or short!  

If this is a new design for you, I hope you'll give it a try and share it with me!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
