An 'Alpine' Faux Tag Mini Album
Happy belated New Year Authentique fans! For today's project, I bring you a 'faux' tag mini album made with the wonderful Winter themed 'Alpine' collection. This mini can be stored as shown in the photo above or it can be folded out & displayed on any shelf or desk. It has several tags that can be used to store photos and/or journaling. Mini album measures 8" x 4" inches when closed.
I refer to this as a faux tag mini album, because the pages are not actual tags. I made the pages to resemble large tags by using a label die by Spellbinders to cut one tag as a template. From this one tag I traced the top design onto the rest of my pages & hand cut them out. Finally I trimmed the bottom off since the die used creates the same design on both the top & bottom.
Once my pages were made, I joined each page with a strip of card stock & left a 3/8" of an inch gusset in between each page so that I could add some dimension to my pages & also to allow for room since the photos have yet to be added to this mini.
Each page is staggered in length so it gives the mini a cascading effect. How cute are the llamas in this collection! My fave!
The mini is held closed with a piece of burlap ribbon. Below you'll find a video showcasing this mini. It's hard to photograph all the details--so the video gives a much better look at how this mini works & was designed.
Supplies Used: Alpine Collection, Alpine Detail Stickers, Other - Burlap Ribbon, Fabric Flowers, Mulberry Paper Flowers
I LOVE THIS!!! Is there any way for you to post measurements and possibly a template to help those of us who are not creative geniuses like you are? I would love to make this! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment! Am looking to see if I create a more detailed tutorial for this in the near future....stay tuned. :-)Delete
I also meant to add this this entire lovely thing is like a surprise package with tags and more tags and more tags that invite wonder and exploration. So well done!ReplyDelete
