and chances are, you already have everything you need to make it.
For the tag book, I gathered some basic supplies:
- Studio Calico Silhouette stamps
- Studio Calico Heart Tag stamp set from Whodunit
- Maya Mist in Silver
- Staz On ink in Jet Black
- Office supply tag
- Scrap paper
- Black pen
First, I folded my tag in half. I stamped a heart onto a piece of scrap paper, cut the heart out and made a mask out of it. I sprayed Maya Mist directly on top of the heart and removed the shape once the mist dried.
Then, I took my Staz On ink and stamped directly where the mask was.
Then, I gathered scrap paper for my inside pages. I cut about 6 little double-sided sheets to fit right inside my tag, then folded them in half.
You can really use any kind of paper you want here, vintage, ledger, patterned...I experimented with some white washing, but decided not to use the paper for a layout, but decided the finished product was perfect for my tag book.
I stamped the girl silhouette on the right side of one paper, and flipped the boy stamp over to stamp it on the left side of another piece of paper.
Once I finished stamping, I folded my "pages" and arranged them in order.
Then I folded the book in half and trimmed off the excess corners.
Then I flattened the book out and stapled the spine right on top of the fold.
Of course, you can decorate the pages before or after you assemble your book. I did most of my embellishing after, and here's how mine turned out:
That's it! Easy peasy. If you decide to make your own tag book, feel free to link it up!
