How To Make A Tag Book – Great Gift Idea

A tag book makes a great gift for someone special to you, and it is a lot of fun to make. Here are some instructions on how to make a tag to make a tag book

How To Make A Tag Book

  1. Cut a piece of 12 x 12-inch paper in half, then score every 3 inches and fold in accordion style.  Adhere the two pieces by overlapping on one of the 3 x 6-inch rectangles.  Fold the paper accordion style and score one more time with a bone folder.  You should have 7 potential tags all in all.
  2. Open the book back up and cut the top of each rectangle piece to form the shape of a tag.  You can do this by cutting the first corner and then using this as a template to cut the other corners so that you have symmetrical tags.
  3. The final step is to punch a hole about 1 inch from the top in the center of each rectangle.  Again, you can punch the first hole and then use that as a template for the remaining to make a tag book
  4. To add a decorative touch to the tag book, you could try using an ink pad to color standard hole reinforcements and adhere them to the holes punched in the tag book and card.  Feed ribbon or twist ties through the holes and tie or twist.
  5. Cut seven pieces of patterned paper, (try making your own doing Alcohol Inking Technique described in next post) distress or ink the edges, and attach to the bottom of each section of the tag book.
  6. Cut out four pieces of your background and emboss or chalk the edges with your choice of color, and attach to the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th sections of the tag book.
  7. Print and crop three pictures for your book (or more if you prefer).  Use distress ink to edge each of the pictures, and attach them to the 2nd, 4th and 6th sections of the tag book.
  8. Finish off your book by adhering stickers and embellishments.
This will make a special gift and it gives the receiver something of yourself.
Best of all – you don’t need a single artistic bone in your body for this one to work.
