Halloween Fun With Elizabeth Craft Designs

August 27, 2015

Hi, it’s Angela and I am so excited to share this project with you. My friend Nicole created a festive Halloween project featuring pull out tags. Let me share with how she created the project using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, Peel-off stickers and Silk Microfine Glitter.

PHOTO A

*A piece of cardstock 17 1/4 x 11 1/2  was scored to create four panels, pockets & a flap.

PHOTO B

*Inside view of the book with the tags in the pockets.

PHOTO C

*Four pieces of pattern paper were cut to decorate the back of the book.

*Letter & numbers were die cut from black cardstock to create the front title of the book “October 31st” and it was glued on the front cover.

*A pumpkin peel-off was placed on double sided adhesive, glittered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, polished, then colored with Copic markers and then cut out.

*A magnet was placed between the pumpkin and black cardstock circle to create a magnetic closure for the book front.

PHOTO D

*Panel # 1 has a pattern paper tag that has been scored twice and it creates a pull down tag which was decorated with a stamp image and metal skeleton.

 *The tag has a journal spot and pictures placed.

*Panel # 2  and panel # 3 have tags folded once and google eyes and photos were used to decorate the tags.

PHOTO G

*Inside the book was decorated with patterned paper behind the pockets and on panel #4, a patterned tag was placed on the pocket front.

PHOTO H

*Four back cardstock tags were die cut from assorted tag dies.

*The cardstock tags for the pockets were decorated with photos of the kids in costumes and ECD double sided tape was applied to the tags and then  ECD Silk Microfine Glitter was applied and polished in.

*On the other two tags, glitter was applied and ribbon was placed on all tags.

*The names of each child were die cut and glued to the tag back along with photos.

*The positive and negative images from the alphabet dies were used to create “Brody’s” name and a gold metallic marker was used to write “My boys 2013”.

Nicole did a wonderful job on this cute tag book! Creating one is easy and fun to decorate and embellish. Pull out your photos, dies & glitter and make a tag book keepsake for yourself!

    I found a site that carries a 12″ x 18″ cardstock. It is at Paperworks.com It is not cheap but here is a link: http://www.paperworks.com/

    Shoot! I cannot find any cardstock that long (or wide). Do you think we could just glue 2 sheets together or something?
    Do you have a link for this size of manila cardstock? I live in the States if that is any help.

      Hello Rosie, If you google “Manila cardstock 17.25 x 11.5” it will give you a couple options to purchase the paper online. But I do think you can glue 2 sheets of cardstock together and cover it up with a nice piece of patterned paper.

    What a great tag book!

    Oh, I thought Manilla was the color. So silly. Thanks.

    I appreciate the quick response and I’ll definitely search out this brand as I think the Halloween book is so cute, but could see this same tag book for Christmas gifts, back to school or any design. Thanks so much. Linda

    I thought this was a really exciting new project that would be fun to make, but I had the same question Beverly has, where do you get 17-1/4″ paper or how do we piece it to get to that length? Thanks for sharing, Linda

    This is oh so very cute and clever. I love it. Where does a person get 17 1/4″ card stock? Can you piece it some way? Thanks so much.

      Hello Beverly and Linda, the 17.25 x 11.5 cardstock is from a brand called Manilla. Maybe if you google this brand you can find a store near you that sells this type of cardstock.
