I love a good tag flipbook. They are so quick and easy to put together. Once you put it together that’s when the fun begins.
But let’s back up. I use to have to trace an older tag and cut out 4 or 6 pages for decorating. But I decided to invest in a new toy and get the Graphic 45 Large Tag and Metal Dies (purchased with my own money, not sponsored). I mean, if I’m making a lot of tag flipbooks, it only makes sense, right?!
I die cut pages from my DCWV Flower Shop paper pad. This paper pad is an older one but it exudes Spring and the bright, bold colors that you want in a Spring time flipbook.
I used both the large and small tag from the set and die cut 6 large pages and 4 small pages. I sandwiched them between manila cardstock for strength.
Here’s a crafty means to an ends. I know that I’m going to need reinforcers. There are metal ones that you can use but in a punch, use a small circle punch and then a larger circle punch to create one. I used my 5/8” punch and my 1” punch to create reinforcers. Then I doubled them for strength.
I created a few 3” x 3” photo spots for the larger tags. I used a mix of photo only pages and photo and journaling spot pages.
The smaller tags are really for decoration. You could certainly create a spot for a 2” x 2” photo but most people don’t have that size photo. Instead, I added flower stickers and other embellishments from my stash.
I used a book ring closure for my tag book. It gives more space for opening and closing the book. And, if I decide to add more picture tags, I have plenty of room to do so.
I really like this project! I can see using these Graphic 45 die tags for a lot of projects in the future.
What type of photo books are you making? Would you invest in this type of tag die? Tag me on IG and show me what you’ve been up to!
