Typography note holder tag / card with a tiny booklet - Base tutorial tag series 2

Hi everyone :-)
Had so fun playing with this Typography paper collection from graphic 45.
Made this note holder as a manly gift and there is place for a personal message on the back.
Think it is great to give some homemade gifts that can be used :-)

Graphic 45 Design Team project and here is the link to they`r blog site,

Used  Typography collection, cardstock and chipboard cut outs, a clothespin all from G45 and
Tim Hotz typewriter die on the front and crackle accent rusted it. Also used a TH hand typewriter and mustache  movers and shapers die that I did the same with.
Brown - black Distress inks and black paint dabber to make it a bit old and vintage.
The tags hold together with the hand and some magnets.


 The tag holds the typewriter in place and there is a hidden place when the typewriter folds down.
The little number tag is from the booklet.

Right tag opened and here I cut out typewriter in 4 pieces and placed a magnet behind each. Under the blue paper there is a magnet plate so the magnets can be placed where it is needed.
On the left side I fussy cut out this gorgeous lady and she holds a quote  cut out from the paper line.

Without the tags there is place for some notes under the magnets and clip.

 All open and I made a note block from cardstock that i clip together with some staples 5 and 5 papers and  then glued them all together.Used a perforation tool 1/2 inch from the top of each paper so they easy can be ripped off.

Also a large tag behind the note holder with a wood ruler and Pediments die from TH on the top.
On the right side I used a typewriter movers and shapers die from TH with crackle accent random over.
On the left side there is a pocket cardstock cut out from the paper line with some tags attach with a paper hinge. Also a chipboard cut out on the top attach with a brad so it can spin.

Lot of fun fussy cutting and all the cut outs are covered with Claudine Hellmuth Multi matte and outlined with a Zig pen.

Also decorated the backside and fussy cut out this gorgeous vintage man that holds the typewriter pocket.

Cut out the middle part and here is place to write a personal message to the receiver. 

Made a little booklet with a pen nib closure. Closes with magnets under the pen nib.
Cut out some keys from the paper and used crackle accent over after I painted the back with brown paint.

Cut out a 10 x 1 5/8 inch paper and scored every 1 inch. Folded back and forward and glued to and to together only on one side and bottom to make sides with pockets. Cut out 3/4 inch strips and glued the numbers on top. You can see picture of it a little further up in this post.

Different ways to combine tags - Tutorial

2 large tags and one regular. Cut off 1 1/2 for the middle part. Round the corners at the bottom and use the cut off piece as a template.

Glue on hinges inside The left hinge is cut at 1 1/2 and score at 1/2 and 1.
The right hinge is cut at 1 5/8 and score at 1/2 on each side.

Now it should look like this folded :-)

It is grate to make a template of the tag and use repositionable tape on the back.
Then you just can place the template on your paper and cut around.
For the hole I used a 1/2 inch circle punch, but if you dont have that you can use the top of a marker or so and drew around

  1. Another amazing project Anne! You make it look so simple, but then the layers upon layers of hidden features really are wonderful. Love the little book!

    Oh and that tool for perforating paper - want! I use my sewing machine (without thread) to make perforations; but it doesn't work or look as nice as that tool. Thanks for showing it!
