Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2: Wishing You Joy StampTV kit


tags
I’m so happy you are joining us for today’s inspiration hop showcasing the new stamps by Gina K!! Everything is available in the store in the All New Category!  I am sharing a project I made to host this week’s Mix It Up Monday Challenge (click to go to post) and its to make a 3D project – a tag book & tags!  You can click any of the pictures to make them bigger.

I love making some 3D projects to have on hand in case there is someone I want to give a little gift before the holidays that they can enjoy for the holidays and alleviate a little stress and this can be one of those things! There are so many fun images and sentiments in this Wishing You Joy StampTV kit, so they are perfect for making fun tags!   The value of this set is amazing for only $49.95 you get cardstock, ribbon, brads and a big stamp set so you can make a lot of holiday projects – get a start on them now before it gets too busy!  
tagbook
Here is a picture of the tag book on the outside.  It is simple to make.  Just grab 2 standard size envelopes and cut 2 pieced of cardstock the same size or slightly larger.  Grab some ribbon, cord or whatever you want to tie it closed, some glue and whatever you want to decorate the front and inside of your tag book.  The following pictures will show you how to assemble it if you have never made one before.  I used pattern paper from the stamptv kit but used Lipstick Red, Lovely Lavender and Green Apple pure luxury cardstock for my tags and the outside of the tag book.

tagbook4The first thing you want to do is flip back the right side envelope and flap and glue it down. Then open the left side envelope flap and that will be glued to the other envelope.

Next, take some ribbon, cord or whatever you’d like to keep your tag book closed and glue it down underneath the left side envelope flap to the back piece of cardstock. 


tag bookLastly, this shows how the envelopes are adhered to each other with a slightly different view. You are basically ensuring that both envelope insides are facing each other so you can slip your tags inside. 

tags inside
Here is how the tags look inside.  Before you adhere or decorate the front of your tag book, you need to bring the left side of your ribbon or cord over to the right so you can tie it with the first one you laid down.  See first photo for more detail.  I put the cord under the nestability Labels 16 die I stamped.  I hope you will play along in the challenge so you can get your name in the drawing for a free stamp set valued up to $24.95!  As always, you do not have to have Gina K stamps to play along, but if you do you should use them because that gets your name in the drawing an additional time, thereby increasing your chances to win! 

As you hop through the designer’s blogs, make sure you leave comments on each one for a chance to win a fabulous Gina K Designs grab bag filled with at least a dozen individual precut images.  Gina K will announce the winners on her blog.

Love this tag holder Donna - I look forward to playing in your challenge later on in the week. I will have to improvise though, I don't have the new Stamp TV kit to make the adorable tags that you did here, so I will have to use Gina's other fantastic winter sets creatively.
