Good day to you all, Fiona here  ready to try a new kind of journal. I was looking at all of my tags that I have done , swaps with and wanting a way to join them together to create my own book of tags. While in this video I have used the idea to make a tag journal.  I hope you enjoy, if you do make one of these , I would love to see them pop on over to my FB or Instagram and tag me in to show me what you did with yours.

 Instructions 

Cut yourself 10 tags measuring 4 x 8.5 inches. Put 2 tags aside these will be our front and back. Score along the bottom of the tags. The first 4 cards will be scored at 1.5 inches. The other 4 cards will be scored at ¾ inchTake the front cardstock that we put aside and one of the scored 2’ inch card stock. Fold along the score line, add glue to our folded scored piece and attach it to the bottom of the front cover, make sure to line up both bottom edges, (see Video for help) do the same for the back over piece and the other 2″ inch

Next, take the  ¾ inch sored pieces and add them in the same way until you are left with your final 2″ scored piece,   add them in the same way we added the others this will be the middle.

Next lay both created pieces together with the bottom touching and lined up using some washi tape to run down the centre to attach the 2 pieces together. Cut off any excess. Using your bone folder smoosh, along the washi tape then close book and smoosh along the outer edge. With the 2″ inch washi tape and centre it over the outer edge of the book where all the paper is held together,  add some extra all-purpose art glue along the middle of the spine you are creating and on the rest of the washi tape making sure to get good adhesion. And you now have a tag journal ! 🙂
