Happy Monday, G45ers!
Turn that Monday frown upside down with some unique tag ideas from Design Team members Sharon Ngoo and Denise Hahn this morning! They show you some incredible ideas with our new Tag Album Staples and you are surely in for a treat!
Before we jump in, as you know every Monday we have a new blog contest. What a great way to start the week! Here is the French Country prize pack you could win this week:

Let's follow Sharon on a tour of her album: "Here's a fun little book to make from the G45 Staples - Regular Tag Album. It looks pretty ordinary from the outside:
But flips open to form a star shape when viewed from the top:
Each panel has a little 'scene' framed by two layers of frames:
And best of all this little book is really fun to make, so I made a little tutorial for you to try out. Hope you like it!" ~Sharon Ngoo
We adore tutorials, and we know our G45ers do too! Thanks, Sharon, for giving us such amazing ideas!
Next, we have a gorgeous and meaningful mini tag album from Denise Hahn with a quick and clever tutorial. "Last year I attended a mixed media art class with some of my
closest friends. I realized the project I created was titled Secret
Garden...so what better papers to create my little memory with? And you
are going to love the new mini tags! For this piece I kept it simple. I
just covered one side using all of the panels from the Secret Garden May
Flowers sheet, and the other side just sprayed with some Vanilla
Shimmer Smooch Spritz. This is a great project to use all of those
little bits of trim you can't bear to throw away." ~Denise Hahn
Now, follow along Denise' Ribbon Binding Ring tutorial. Such a great idea!
1. Cut about 1 yard of ribbon. Start with the ring on the tags. Tie in a knot leaving a long enough tail to make a bow.
2. Start wrapping around and pulling snug.
3. As you wrap, the end with the know will naturally start to go through the holes.
4. When you meet back up-tie another knot.
5. Make a pretty bow!
The finished product with the beautiful ribbon binding:
