Halloween, Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts style . . .
You're invited . . .

Halloween tags display booklet . . . .

MAM OCT 2018 A

Today is the 1st of the month and that means a new set of Mini Album Makers Challenge blog posts from the Design Team.

I'm featuring a set of Super-X tags from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

But this is a mini-album blog so I'm turning them into a mini-book of sorts.

I wanted them staggered so I cut a 2" piece off the bottom of the first tag and 1.5" off the bottom of the second tag.

Then created a binding as follows:

  1.  Cut a piece of cardstock 5" wide (the width of the tags) X 11".
  2. Score as follows: 1" -  1-1/8" -  2-1/8" -  3-1/8"  -  3-5/8" -  4-5/8" -  5-5/8"  -  5-3/4" -  6-3/4" -  7-3/4" -  8-1/4" -   8-3/4"  -  9-3/4" -  9-7/8"

Each tag is 1/8" thick.

Here's the goal:

Tag 1

Begin with the shortest tag:

  • Glue the very bottom (the 1/8" width) of the tag to the 1/8" margin
  • Tag 2

 

  • Glue the 1" first margin to the bottom front of the tag.

Tag 3

  • Glue the next 1" margin to the back of the tag.

Tag 4

  • Fold the next 1" margin down on top of the last 1" and glue down.

Tag 5

  • The next gusset is the 1/2" margin between the two tags. Do not glue this!
  • Continue glueing the second 1/8" wide tag to the 1/8" wide margin and then the front 1" and the back 1" to the 2nd tag until all 3 tags are glued in.

Cut a piece of chipboard (I used the chip from the cut tags):  5" X 1.5". Glue to the bottom of the assembly, stabilizing the tags.

Tag 6

Ready to decorate!

 I wrapped a piece of cardstock around the bottom of the tag booklet and created a pocket for tag #1.  Details of the 1st tag:

And when all finished and tied with black & cream striped ribbon, this tag booklet stands up by itself:

I love your Halloween tags - so bright and funky, with the shadowy black frames and accents adding drama. More great how-to instructions and photos, thank you. As always, an inspirational post.

Oh such a beautiful Halloween book Nancy ! I love the way you have made the book in the first instance, and then the beautiful decoration. Staggering the tags is a great tip and allows you to see all the lovely papers and embellishments. Gorgeous !!! Jennie x
