Altered Artist Mini Tag Booklet

Hi everyone!  Barbara here with my last post as part of the Altered Pages design team.  I am saddened to leave this fabulous group, but never fear, I've been asked to come back on occasion as a guest designer, and I happily agreed! 

I decided to make a cute little accordion style mini note book with tags using simple coin envelopes. And, best of all, these are so quick and easy to make.  I love quotes and used some on the back of my tags, along with some fab collage images for the tag fronts.  Altered Pages has a great selection of collage images, too! 

 

Cut a strip of gray card stock 2-1/2" wide by 11" long.  Use a scoring tool, like the Scor-Pal, to score at 1", 1-3/8",  5-1/2", 5-7/8", and 9-3/4".  Cut off excess paper at the 9-3/4" score line.


Fold top flaps to inside and place double-sided tape down the center of each coin envelope. 


Adhere coin envelopes together.  Make sure they are going in the same direction, with the opening at the top.  Then adhere them to the back section of the card stock.   Place one more strip of double sided tape down the center of the top coin envelope.


Fold front of cover over.  It should look like this.


Trim a print paper from the pad slightly smaller than the front cover (2-1/4" x 3-1/2").  Distress edges with blending tool and black ink.


Adhere to front cover.


Trim a coordinating piece of print paper slightly smaller than the back cover (2-1/4" x 4-1/4), distress edges with black ink, and adhere to back cover.


Remove paper line from double sided tape and close front of cover over the coin envelopes.  When you open the booklet, your envelopes will open like an accordion.


To make tags, cut five pieces of coordinating papers 2-1/8" x 3-5/8",  round corners and distress edges with black ink.  Cut five 7/8" circles from scraps of paper, edge each with the black ink.


Fold each circle in half and adhere to top of tags.  Resize ATC Cards 2 1318 Collage Sheet images to 75% and print.  Cut each image out, adhere to slightly larger piece of gray card stock, then adhere to tag front.

Tag Fronts

Resize Pocket Quotes 2367 Collage Sheet images to 75% and print.  Cut each image out and adhere to tag backs.  Stamp floral image from Muse Altered Artist stamp set with black Stazon ink.  Use a water brush with gelato to color the images.

Tag Backs

Insert tags into each envelope, add tiny magnet (or velcro) for closure, and adhere a pen nib with dimensional adhesive to the front.  


Stamp "Altered Artist" onto a scrap of matching card stock with black ink, trim to size of front flap, round bottom corners, and adhere to front flap.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
