A Ladies Diary tag Card / photo display with a book mark - Base tutorial Tag serial 4

Hi everyone :-)
So fun using the Staples tags from Graphic 45 in different ways and here I made a card that also can be used as a frame
Used A Ladies Diary paper collection and one large staples tag, chipboard and stickers from Graphic 45, May arts ribbon and Xyron adhesive dots.

Graphic 45 design team project


The card / photo frame closes with magnets and inside a used a bench die from Marianne Design and Spellbinders labels twenty eight die.Used Xyron glue dots to glue Ladies Diary on the ends of the ribbon.
Lot of fun fussy cutting and all the cut outs are covered with Claudine Hellmuth Multi matte and outlined with a Zig pen.

Inside there is place to write a personal message.

On the back side is also place for a photo inside the chipboard cut out frame.
Bookmark with a key from G45 on a chain and the flower pot is antique metal door pull also from G45 

Here you can see the book mark and the tag.

Different ways to combine tags - Tutorial

 Take 1 large staples tag and score at 1 1/2. Fold to the front.

Hinges are cut at 1 inch and score at 1/2.
Glue on the flap and the tag base.

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 1/5 inch circle punch, but if you dont have that you can use the top of a marker or so and drew around
