Accordion Tag Book

Evening all,

tee hee, this started out as a trial run but soon became a full blown project!!

The instructions for making this style of book can be found in Alisa Golden's 'Expressive Handmade Books' if you are interested in having a go, and there may well be tutorials on Youtube!!??

Me being me I ended up adapting the instructions as I went along as I didn't have all the supplies that Alisa had used, this is half the fun for me to be honest, I love stretching my skills and imagination if I can!!

Anyhoo, here you go........







This was relatively quick and simple to make and I was delighted with how it turned out, especially for a first attempt!!

The supplies I used were as follows -

4 sheets of A4 card for the inner pages
1 recycled food box for the cover
Thick smooth cartridge paper for the tags
Snippets of ribbon from my stash
Self altered ring reinforcers
Acrylic paints, DI's and other various ink pads
Various stencils from my stash, and
Stamp credits go to Bo Bunny, Viva Decor and Andy Skinner.

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts mean a lot.

Huge hugs

Dawn x

Dawn, it is very kind of you to offer to write up the instructions for me. I would love to have them if it doesn't take up too much of your time. Otherwise, perhaps I can find the book in my library system or something similar on youtube.
