I used the tag in Plantin Schoolbook. I did a hide contour on the tag so there would be no hole at the edge. The tags measured:
3.5 x 4.35
3.5 x 4.89
3.5 x 5.43
I made sure the letters were 3.5 to be exact in size as the tags and then nudged them onto the tag and welded them together. I had to fiddle around with it a bit, but it worked out okay in the end.
I used my new toy the i-rock! It does rock! Of course it's one more thing that I want to buy lots of new gems and such to go along with so I will continue to be broke. It's always something!!
So here is how it turned out. I made two of them for the new grand-babies. I know their parents have already bought them cute little Halloween costumes for their first Halloween, and so I thought these little books would be fun to display those pictures. They are also small enough, that they could be mounted onto a scrap book page...sort of like a scrapbook within a scrapbook...why not?
I bound it using some wire from my Zutter. I merely punched a couple holes in the edge of the book using my Crop-a-Dile (since it can easily punch through all the thickness) and slid a couple links of Zutter wire through and finished it all off with some ribbons. Usually these books are bound with O-Rings, but...I make due with what I already have on hand, and I think it looks pretty cute! Beside that, I liked that the wire was black. My photos really don't do the cuteness of this paper justice!
I am thinking about doing a little video demonstrating the i-rock. Maybe tomorrow?
