Tag Book by Stephanie Ackerman
This really sweet Coupon book by Adorn-it caught my eye. While the packaging claims this kit to be a “heartfelt coupon book”, I wanted to see what else could be created with this kit. The kit comes with everything you need to create this tag book (except the paper), so I had lots of thoughts on the variety of projects to make.
Since my niece is to be married shortly, I decided to focus on a love theme. However, instead of creating coupons, I created a mini book to focus on their love for each other. I thought it would be a perfect shower gift. While I focused on all kinds of love quotes, I also added journaling spots and photo mats where she can include photos of herself and her fiancé.
Each page was created as a mini layout and then adhered to the envelope once it was completed. The base layer on each page was cut 3 3/8” x 6 ¼”, allowing a little bit of each envelope to show.
The front and back covers use Moxxie pattern papers along with some black cardstock to help the colors pop. I tied ribbon between the front cover layers and added an acrylic heart with metallic thread.
Pages 2 and 3 have spots for photos (2” x 2 ½”) along with some quotes.
Pages 4 and 5 have matted quotes.
Pages 6 and 7 have matted quotes, brads and a journaling block (3/4” x 4 ¾”)
Pages 8 and 9 have photo mats or journaling blocks (1 ¾” x 5 ¾”) along with some torn Moxxie papers.
Once completed, I punched holes and inserted the included rings. I then tied ribbons to the rings and added a key with metallic thread.
Each tag was covered with cardstock and/or pattern paper. Quotes have been added to some and photo mats have been added. I have inked the edges where necessary.
Pattern paper: Prima
Quotes: Making Memories
