Tag Book

I love making books, probably like making them and looking at them more than using them….but they all have a purpose eventually.
So, when Lelainia came up with this darling little tag book, I had to have a go.

Followed her instructions to the letter using PA fresco paint…Smoked Paprika and Eggplant.
With the bits of paper that I cut off I stuck them to a little pocket, don't know their craft name but the ones that stamp collectors store stamps in. I glued this to the inside cover.
Being an idle so and so, and having my sewing machine out all the time now, I sewed the pages in.
I used  bit of Treasure Gold on the folds of the book and round the edges which finished it off nicely.
I glued on the word Remember because I am going to take it on my next holiday…northern Spain this month, and keep a few notes about memorable times.
Thanks Lelaina, I really enjoyed making my tag book.

Forgot to mention that the stamps that I used are from PA HP1204EZ.

  6. Wonderful book to take away with you Hazel, looks like you made the same amount of signatures too, you say you sewed them in, does that mean you sewed down the middle of each of the signatures or down the middle of all the pages, am a tad confused.

    Great project :-) xxx
