G45 A Proper Gentleman tag photo display - Base tutorial tag series 2

Hi everyone :-)
So fun using the Staples tags from Graphic 45 in different ways and here I made a photo frame.
Made this tag photo display for a manly gift idea.
Used A Proper Gentleman papers and also some from other collections for the background papers , staples tags and key hole from Graphic 45. May Arts black ribbon behind the key hole.

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


Fussy cut out the man, hat and scarf. The hat on the tag and the key hole holds the tags together.
The fussy cut outs are covered with Claudine Hellmuth Multi matte and outlined with a Zig pen. A little pocket watch is fastened on a chain and magnet behind.

 Fussy cut out the clock and chain and placed hinge behind the chain for the tag.

There is a magnet placed behind the clock and the hat makes a secret pocket.

Here is how it can be displayed with some pictures inside.

Also place on the backside for a picture

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 3/8 and score at 1/2 from each side.
The right hinge is cut at 1 1/2 and score at 1/2 on each side.Cut around as show on the picture.

                                                  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
Supply list:
