Happy Monday...how was your weekend? We had a full one filled with lots of Christmas-y events! I'm really in the holiday spirit, but I wish time would slow down a bit so it would all last a little longer.
I had these great photos of my oldest son, Garrison, that I shot right before his first school dance last month. I've been wanting to make a "tag-inspired mini" on a layout for a while now (see photos below on how I did that) and these pics proved to be the best opportunity to do so!
I used SC's November and December Kits +Add-Ons for this layout.
Those adorable arrow wood chips are from Freckled Fawn.
Ok, here's how I made my tag-mini...
First, I gathered three tags, two for photos and one for my journaling, and embellished each one to my liking. I typed my journaling using my Royal 440 typewriter.
Next, I adhered the last tag (the one with my journaling) directly onto my page.
I punched a hole through the patterned paper directly under my tag, but not through the grey card stock. Then I placed the other two tags on top, threaded my baker's twine through all three tags and the patterned paper that I made the hole through and tied a loose knot at the top to allow the tags to be flipped up easily.
It was such an easy (and different!) way to add a few more photos and my journaling onto my page. I will definitely be doing more of this in the future! I hope you give it a try, too :)
Have a great day and TFL!!!
