Last week was a black hole!

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.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you found something interesting and welcome your feedback. If you ask a question, and don't add your email, do either subscribe to replies or check back. I try to answer every question if I can. Cheers!
