Celebrate Winter

ECD_Fox_Spiegel

Our challenge this month for the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Design Team is to make a project with the new Tags & More die sets. I decided to turn them into a little mini album.

And since I am obsessed with foxes at the moment, I used Authentique’s new Cozy papers (with foxes and snowflakes) and ordered Dutch the Fox, one of the newest dies from Karen Burniston for ECD.

Cut four strips of paper 3 1/2″ x 12″. Use Tags & More 1 — Lace and cut the tag on one side. Then, snip and trim the edges so you have four long tags.

Score at 5 1/8″ and fold each tag. Then ink all of the pieces.

Take two tags and put them back-to-back so the ends match. Tape the ends together to make a page. Line up another tag so the tops of the tags match and adhere. Then, do another set of bottoms to form the book. It will look like this:

Cut out the pieces of Dutch the Fox (I used black cardstock, white velvet paper from ECD and some of the Authentique paper) and adhere him to the front of the book. Cut out six flower hole reinforcers and two corners (included in the Tags & More 1 — Lace set). Adhere the corners to the front. Adhere the flowers onto each side of the tops of the tags — making sure they are lined up so you don’t see any backs.

Add letters to spell Winter and a few Glitter Dots to the cover. Tie ribbon through each of the tags.

Then, complete each of the inside pages as shown …

The tree is also a die from ECD.

I love how the book turned out.

Now, see what the other designers created with the new tag dies on the ECD blog!

  1. Beautiful album! I’ve been wanting to make an album with these dies since I first laid eyes on them! (Alas, no time… hopefully after the holidays!)
