This is the little tag book/gift card holder I made my sister, for her birthday this year. Her gift was a day out, lunch then fabric shopping, so I needed a way to make that into something tangible, not just a gift card. I used a bunch of Heather Bailey (also a fabric designer) scrapbooking products. Plus, it's cute!
Details are after each photo. To make it easier, consider all products to be from the Heather Bailey line, unless I note otherwise.
The little green hang tag is a KI Memories softie frame, backed with a scrap stamped with a PaperTrey Ink stamp. I added a pearl bead with a flower rubon. The cover is an acrylic frame (Page Frames, I think) that I added rubons to. The book is bound with a binder ring and held together with an elastic attached from the back cover.
The letter stickers are velvet (fuzzy!) from American Crafts.
I backed this peek-a-boo tag with shimmery white Bazzill ("Bling"), then added a rubon, stamped it with my favorite PaperTrey Ink letter stamps, added the three black rhinestones, and backed the whole thing with a giant paper flower (Prima).
I glued that to the back of the orange letterpress printed frame (Etsy find from Sycamore Street Press) on the left. I stamped it with a birthday sentiment from PaperTrey Ink. Perfect fit! The pink frame tag on the right is chipboard that I covered with leather paper (K&Co I think) and backed with a piece of clear acrylic. You can see the paper flowers (Jolees by You) I used on the other side in the last photo below.
This tag was fun to make, but took forever to work out properly. I needed a way to include the gift card and wanted to use these silk adhesive ribbon strips somehow. I started with a coin envelope that opens on the top, rather than the side. I wrapped the ribbon around, and trimmed the ends. But then I needed to attach it to the binder ring. This chipboard butterfly was perfect. It's KI Memories and is very sturdy.
In this last photo, you can see the chipboard piece I used as the back cover. I backed it with more of the white shimmery Bazzill and added my maker's mark.
This is the kind of fiddly stuff I love to make, and I'm really really wishing I was out at the scrapbook retreat playing, right now!
