Hi! It's Carly here for another #throwbackthursday!
Fall is my favorite season so I've been wanting to do something to document all of the wonderful things about this time of year and I love mini books! They are such a fun way to play with products and techniques, while doing a bit of scrapbooking and journaling. So I knew I wanted to make a mini book about fall but I needed some inspiration so of course I turned to my favorite "idea book", The Classroom! I did a search for "mini books" (could it be any easier?) and found these awesome ideas:
Feeling very inspired, I created this Happy Fall "tag" book:
I created the book from tags of all different shapes and sizes, with lots and lots of gold. I've started to add photos & journaling and I plan to complete it as the season goes on.
To create the polaroid tags, I used the Impression Obsession Dies, Instant Photo Frame. I die cut two photo frames from Solar White cardstock and one from Craft-a-Board. Then I made a "sandwich" with the Craft-a-Board in the middle. Then I added a hanging tag to the top made from kraft cardstock cut to 1/2" x 3/4", folded in half and hole punched.
To create the 3x4 vellum tags, I used the WRMK Pocket Scrap Starter Dies and die cut the Seven Paper Amelia vellum with gorgeous gold dots! I added a kraft circle to the top on both sides and used my Crop-a-dile to punch a 1/4" hole through the entire thing.
To create the 4x6 foiled kraft tags, I used the WRMK Pocket Scrap Starter Dies again and die cut papers from the Bazzill 6x6 Paper Pad Specialty Kraft With Gold Foil. Then I added a tag to the top made from kraft cardstock cut to 1/2" x 3/4", folded in half and hole punched.
Just for fun I filled a glassine bag with sequins and die cut leaves from the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Thankful set that I watercolored with Distress inks. I sealed the bag, added a circle of gold glitter cardstock and used my Crop-a-dile to punch a 1/4" hole through the whole thing.
And thanks to Miss Julie and all of her awesome Fuse projects, I want to use my Fuse Tool for everything, so I also made a glitter-filled pennant. To attach it to my binder ring, I just cut a piece of kraft paper to fit the length, scored in half and hole punched it. Then I adhered the glitter-filled pennant along the inside edge.
