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.

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.


YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.


# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
