Dashing Tag Booklet

September 24th, 2007

Well I made some progress on my Christmas cards Saturday – not nearly as much as I had hoped for, but enough that I was covered head to toe in glitter! And we had a ton of fun. 🙂  I asked Taylor to show us how to make her file folder albums and I think I’m going to teach them in an upcoming class.  Super cool.  (She posted instructions on her blog on September 20th – check it out!)  I was planning to work on decorating it yesterday afternoon, when I was surfing SCS and decided to check out the Featured Stamper Challenge.  This is a fun challenge where a particular stamper’s gallery is featured and the idea is to take one of their projects and CASE it while changing at least 2 elements of it.  Yesterday’s Featured Stamper was starofmay  (Kristina Werner).  While perusing her fabulous gallery I came across her adaptation of Taylor’s file folder project – it was a mini version and I just had to try it!  She has a pdf download on her blog with all the measurements (posted September 5th – you may need to click into her archives) – thanks Kristina!

I had so much fun playing with this little project!


This cute little tag book is made from half of a manilla file folder and some very simple folds.  I used SU Dashing designer paper to decorate it along with stamp sets Snow Burst, So Many Sayings and Holiday Tag Team all in this fun color combo of Real Red, Old Olive, River Rock and Vanilla.  I just love how all the sentiments in So Many Sayings fit perfectly in the Word Window punch, making them very easy to use individually.  I’m thinking I may add some photos to the pull out tags – or possibly some rub on sentiments.  And I’m pretty sure I need to add some glitter or stickles.  Well you know, more IS more!  LOL!

Here’s a picture of the front with the booklet tied shut.


I wanted to experiment a bit with the closure so I decided to try the Round Tab Punch in combination with the Slot Punch.  It worked out well.  I just folded the tab piece in half and  punched the slot, then attached the tabs to the sides of the booklets and threaded the River Rock ribbon through.

You really need to try making both Taylor and Kristina’s versions of these file folder booklets.  I see Taylor’s full sized booklet as more of a mini scrapbook with tons of possibilties and I see Kristina’s little version as more of a tag card that would be wonderful for any special occassion or party invitation.  Both are really easy and so much fun! 

Busy day ahead.  Thanks for stopping by!
