All about Tags
My Mind’s Eye, Follow Your Heart papers are both beautiful and versatile. The color combinations of light blue, aqua’s, yellows, grey, brick red, and tan are just great for this tag book. I love how easy it was to just incorporate the words and pictures from the paper into the tag pages of the book. I used the Tim Holz “Tag and Bookplates” die to cut the pages out of the Follow Your Hear papers. It was so easy and fun. If you want thicker pages just adhere the papers together before cutting the tag out. To make the spine of the book use the Scor-pal to score the paper with (7 score lines), fold the score back and forth creating a mountain, valley accordion of sorts. Adhere each tag to the right side of the mountain peak and adhere the entire signature to front and back tag for covers. Add some of the fun coordinating embellishments from My Mind’s Eye and then cut a small piece off the Follow Your Heart paper for the spine to cover the accordion and your books complete. When you get a chance stop into the store to get a good look at the tag book before starting if you haven’t ever made this type of book before, but remember it is fairly easy and makes a fun simple book.
