Yikes. Been saying that a LOT recently. I don’t know how life got so out of control, but honestly, had I not scheduled a bunch of posts before all the medical stuff began this place would have been a black hole as well LOL!
OK so back at it, and I swear by April things have GOT to slow down.
One of the things I was working on in my spare few moments the week before was this little folded tag book. It was shown in the PMAS YouTube streams. I try to watch them all but honestly at nearly 2 hours every time I can just about manage it on 2x speed. They sound like chipmunks but I can always slow it down it there is something I really need to see. I know I miss a lot, but crikey, it is just too much time with three streams a week NOT to speed it up.
Anyway. I think this was the stream, but I think they showed bits over a few of them.
They used US letter paper, and of course I have A4 so mine is a bit different size-wise. You basically fold the sheet in half width-wise, cut the bottom fold-up flap from the back side – which I did NOT bother to do, I just folded it over and stuck the flaps together, then to the front to make the pocket.
You then rip a bit from the top side to make a pocket opening
then join the four sheets into (what is supposed to be) a bi-folded book. Mine ended up being an accordion because I stuck one of the top sheets used to decorate it to the wrong side. So very me.
I had quite a lot of roll-off/clean-up sheets from the Teal & Purple challenge, and that is a fave colour combo anyway, so I used it mostly for the base paper bits.
Of course the light changed before I got to take the final photos of the inside, so this is not a great one.
I will hope for better light before the final shots of the front, and the ties, and maybe even the inside full of tags. We’ll see. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the silver edging on the flaps…
I have never been a fan of gold in jewelry but I do prefer it on art – it just glistens so. Anyway, for this, the silver seemed more logical choice, but is not as shiny as I hoped. I need a better paint!
I do have one really pretty sheet from the colour combo to use to decorate the fronts. Typical, it is adorned with gold, but there you go…also so like me.
