Mini Books and Tags

Last week I gave a program to teach a mini envelope book, and it turned out to be so much fun. 

There were lots of pockets to fill and I learned that I could make a tag "tab" out of just about anything.  I used scraps of paper, circles folded in half... even a smaller tag attached to make a bigger tag.  These are all just under 4 inches square. 

The two at bottom left started out as page dividers for a three ring notebook.  I just cut to size for the size tag I needed.  Love that!  I used up a lot of little bits and scraps of paper, fabric and yarn by the time I was finished.   It feels great to use up leftovers like that.  Go Play!

I was the lucky recipient of the book with the 7 on it. Can't tell you how great it is. I keep looking at every page and pulling out secret pages everywhere. Very cool! Thanks Ms. Pat

These look like so much fun! Color, secret pockets, ribbons, cool paper. Wish I could have been at KCG to learn this technique from you Pat!
