Hello, G45ers!

  Are you looking to try something new?  Today Brand Ambassador, Einat Kessler shares a fantastic Vintage Hollywood Tag Mini Album.  This bright and colorful album is full of tricks and tips that are begging to be tried out.  So pull out your goodies, and let's get busy!  

 

 


Tag Mini Album

By Einat Kessler

 

Hi dear crafty friends! Einat here with a new project to inspire you.

What do you do with leftover tags? I had a few of them left from other projects and they were all in different sizes and colors and didn't really match together. So I covered them with paper and created a mini album.

 

 

I had to think about binding them… I wanted them to be at different heights so traditional binding was tricky and I also didn't want to use a ring. So I created a new type of binding. I took each paper and folded it in half. Then I attached two tags, one on each side. I cut around the tag to get the shape.

 

 

The next step was to take another folded paper and attach one side to the back side of the last tag in the mini album and the other to a new tag. It turned out to be a really fast way of binding the mini album.

 

Tip #1: When you have leftover supplies don’t throw them away. Think how you can combine them together and create a new project!

 

 

Tip #2: To ensure a really good coverage of something don’t cut the paper in advance. First attach it to what you want to cover and then cut around it. This will work on tags, paper and other flat objects.” ~Einat
