I loved the tags in the KaiserCraft Just Believe line and thought a little Christmas book would be a great way to use them. As I got started, I found that there were lots of things about this line that worked well in this book, like the reverse side of the labels made great embellishments. I found so many other embellishments that that I ended up only using a few tags. I think this would be a great gift for a grandmother. Just add a few pictures of the kids at Christmas.
The covers and all pages were made with 5” x 8” Tim Holtz Idea-ology Grungeboard, although any chipboard would work just as well.
To make the covers, cut the Grungeboard to 5” x 7 ½”. Affix the desired paper to both sides the Grungeboard using a glue stick and a brayer. After affixing paper, cut the edges with the Tim Holtz Sizzix On the Edge
Scallops die. (It has two edges and I made the front cover with one and the back with the other producing designs that were different but coordinated.)
I also used the Grungeboard for the pages, but again chipboard would work. For pages, heavy cardstock would work. The pages are 5” x 6 ½” and the paper is applied with glue stick and brayer.
