Tag Mini Album

I’ve been so excited about our week with Lawn Fawn! I must admit, I am a newbie to Lawn Fawn! Now I know what all of the talk is about! It’s Emily Lanham here today with a fun ribbon/stamping/paper project to share!

I have a new found love for tag making… but when I’m finished with the tags, I really don’t know what to do with them. I love making the #8 tags, but they are often too large for any gifts or cards, so I decided why not make a mini album with them!

First, start by misting your tags. Let dry or apply heat with a heat gun.

Once tags are dry, stamp images on them with your clear stamps. I randomly placed images leaving room to later add photos.

Attach ribbons to the top of the tags. I used a stapler to do so and layered my ribbons by color.

Once you have all ribbons stapled on, you will want to add something to hide the staples. I added a flower (393-3-01), but white wasn’t really the color I was looking for, so I misted them with a couple of colors. Let them dry completely or you will get ink all over yourself and your project.

Add your flowers and you can even add leaves behind them (XL16). Make sure before adding flowers that you cut them out from the mesh wired ribbon.

 I also embellished the front cover by making a rosette and adding a sentiment from the clear stamp set.

Add a book binding ring to attach your tags together in a mini album form.

And there you have it! A mini album made from tags ready to add photos to!
