"I’ve wanted to create an interactive mini album from these tags from the moment I saw them. But only when Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper collection came back I felt ready. This is the perfect collection for this type of mini album. There are so many images and details to fussy cut into embellishments and interactive mechanisms that fit the tags size exactly." ~Einat

Tip #1: Use dimensional foam tape to make the images pop out of the page. Cut two or three identical images and layer them with the tape.

Tip #2: Each G45 has a words page that is great for adding text. Change the order of the words or even the letters to create your own words and quotes.

We love these "Friends" and "XOXO" Spring tags from Magda! Check out her great process tutorial video below and make your own: 


"Hi All.. I want to show you this beautiful tags I did ..  and as I said.. Non Traditional Spring Tags.. why non traditional? Well..  Why always Spring has to be pastels? I love work with black so I decided to make my spring project in black oranges and greens.. also I fussy cut the edges of the Cardstock Die Cut Flowers and I love the dimension they give to the tags.. a lovely seam binding and voila! A Spring Tag.. what to you think.. Traditional pastel or Crazy Magda’s Spring tags?

Have a wonderful day!"
