I saw this tag book months ago and had to figure out how to make it! It was on my list for a while. At the beginning of this summer, I saw a cute article about a Summer Bucket List for kids. I got to thinking about what would be on my own list.....and I remembered this project. It was only fitting to use the book as my own Summer Bucket List mini album!
I started with a 6x12 piece of cardstock. I scored it at 2", 4", 8" and 10". The top of the paper measures 2 1/2". I marked my center point and went 1 1/4" to either side and made a dot. I trimmed from the dot on the top to the bottom corner on both sides to make this shape.
I used this K&Co. paper pad with 2 sided papers for my album. I used two of each sheet and alternated folding them.
I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".
Here are all of my pages.
I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in each page. With the Crop-A-Dile, you can punch through several papers at once.
I cut out some tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More at 5.25". I hid the slit in the tag.
I used my ATG gun to glue down the flaps.
I also glued down the outer flaps.
I cut out summer 2010 from Lyrical Letters Loop Dee Loo at 1".
I put one tag in each pocket. I tied ribbon around each pocket and stapled ribbon to each tag. I also tied some ribbons to the rings.
Here is my Summer 2011 Bucket List Mini Album. My tags will be filled with memories from Baseball, T-Ball, Organizing, 4th of July, Crafting and our annual vacation to the Ozarks!
