Couture Creations Nesting Dies True Friends Tag Book


Today I want to share with you how to make a tag book using your Couture Creations Nesting Dies. I hope you enjoy the one I made because it was really easy to do. This is also a wonderful way just to make a few gift tags in the future using the same technique.
I used the largest of the Scallop Nesting Rectangles to make my scallop border with. HINT: To hold the die in place I used a bit of washi tape to secure it prior to running it through my die cut machine.
I die cut and adhere the largest of the Nesting Rectangle using Couture Creations Double Sided Tape to a white card base that I cut a bit larger than the rectangle. I added my scallop border that I had die cut to the bottom of the white card base with another piece of double sided tape.
I placed a small border strip over the top of the seam. Repeat these steps on the back of the white card base making sure that the scallops match up.
So now you need to cut a stack of nesting rectangles along with your scallop borders to make the front and back of the 4 tags you will need to make your tag book.
Make sure to cut an angle using your Couture Creations Precision Scissors on the top corners of your tag. I also used my Couture Creations Sanding Block on some core dotted paper to expose the inter core.
Page Two - Add some of the embellishments and frames using the Foam Mounting Tape to give dimension to your tags. Remember to use some to the fabulous Gemstones from Couture Creations.
Page 3 - All the frames for the tag book is used from a few of the smaller nesting rectangles.
Page 4 - It is always fun to do double layers using your Couture Creation Nesting Dies, they always give a wonderful mat look to your project.
Page 5 - I made a few of my photo frames from the nesting rectangles.
