Tag Picture Book

I have had a request to post how to make the Tag Book I gave to several family and friends during the holidays. I began with 12 X 12 scrapbook paper. My favorite is Graphic 45. The paper is sturdy and double-sided...(pretty on both sides).
This pack came from Hobby Lobby and was 1/2 price. Now don't go rushing out to Hob Lob ....at the moment in Lakeland, they are not carrying this brand. What a bummer....I have talked to several folks at our store and requested this wonderful paper......we'll see....

Place the 12 X 12 paper on a Scor- Pal. If you use the Martha Stewart brand be careful. The scoring tool is sharp and can cut the paper very easily.  Score the paper into 3 sections at 4", 8". I also cut the 12" paper at 4 1/2(Length) . Cut a second piece of paper 2 1/2" in length and score the same....4" and 8". Place piece #2 at the bottom of piece #1. In the picture above, the first piece of paper is red print. The second piece is yellow with old typewriters. Staple the bottom and sides together using T!m Holtz stapler. You may also use the pink very sticky tape.

I prefer the staples because it is faster......

If you don't like the look of the staples on the front....use washi tape to cover the staples.

Above: washi tape music notes to cover the staples....

I also used a tag to cut the edges and a hole punch. The one above is made in 4 sections instead of 3. I like the 3 section book much better because the tags you place in the pocket hold a larger photo.

If you want 4 sections.....score at 3", 6" and 9".

Above photo: once your book is complete.....make tags to fit each compartment. This is what the photos will be attached to.

If you have any questions, email me at Lyndalhcropshop@gmail.com.
I will update this post with the completed photo of my tag book with pictures......when I locate it!
Can't quite put my hands on it right at this moment. Have you every had one of those weeks when you feel completely discombobulated?
