Alice’s Tea Party Tag Book Tutorial

By Cal Summers 


“Hey G45ers –

Did you know there’s an amazing resource on the G45 Blog? Past classes for all the kit clubs that are available for anyone to use?


For the leveled up project I chose to level up the Kaleidoscope Staggered Tag Watercolor Album by Annette Green which you can find here

Club G45 2019 – Vol 07 – Kaleidoscope


For my project I used

Alices Tea Party 12 x 12 Collection Pack×12-collection-pack/

Large Kraft Tags

Ivory Trading cards

Classic Ivory Trim

I also used my Tag dies but you can decorate without as Annette did



I followed Annette’s tutorial and scored the tags and folded up to make pockets. I decorated the tags with patterned paper using my die and in my video I show you how you can make a long die cut with a short tag die – but if you follow Annette’s original class you don’t need to use a die at all.

It was in my decorating that I actually did change from Annette’s beautiful album.


For my decorating I used a technique I like to use a lot. Because we get two images i.e two sheets of each paper we can fussy cut one image to lie on top of another to get a real 3D effect. I like to use spare bits of chipboard rather than foam to layer my images up but foam will do well!


Take a look at all my pages here to see how I decorated.
