Tag Mini Album using Graphic 45 Staples Alphabet Banners from Cut At Home!

Who doesn't love Graphic 45?!! I love everything Graphic 45 has to offer, especially their Staples line from Cut At Home. Today I'm featuring a new product that will be coming out - Alphabet Banners! These come in several colors. Today, I'm using the red. The Alphabet Banners also come with this beautiful ribbon you see in the photo. I have turned the banners into a tag mini album:

With my tags, I have spelled out the word 'family'.

I cut Kraft cardstock to 5" x 3 7/8", and used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper (1/2") to round all four corners. I then adhered it to the backside of my tag, with a little wet glue.

Around each letter on the front, I used a black pen to trace them...helping them stand out a little bit more. To the front, I added a couple of hand-cut banners, and rolled roses. I've used Marianne Design Creatables Rose Buds & Leaves and made three rolled roses from black cardstock. I love making these flowers! I use my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, the "curler" to help roll my roses. It makes it so easy & quick! I also added these adorable hearts using Marianne Design Creatables Decorative Hearts from patterned paper & cardstock, and a few enamel dots.

For each of my pages, I've used a Spellbinders Nestabilities  die, running them through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine. I've used the Classic Scalloped Ovals die, and cut a black frame, along with Graphic 45 papers from both Cityscapes, and Enchanted Forest. I've left the top of each die open to slip in a photo.

For embellishment, I've added beautiful Wild Orchid Craft Flowers, along with some banners, and enamel dots. I have also inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Black Soot.

This album came together quickly, and was lots of fun to make. There's so many projects you can use these banners for! How cute would they look hanging from your mantel?

I really hope you've enjoyed my project share today. Please check out my video on the process of how this came together, along with a full list of supplies on Cut At Home's Blog.
