Tag Book: Engagement

I learned how to make these really fun mini scrapbooks from the awesome book Creative Scrapbooks by Donna Downey. There's a whole series called Yes It's a Scrapbook and they are all must haves. They are what first got me scrapbooking off the page so to speak, and looking at everything new in a new hmmmm...what kind of scrapbook can I turn this into kinda way. Donna's one of my all time favorite scrapbookers and all around creative people.
This one I made several years ago, when still in New Mexico in celebration of my Godbrother's wedding engagement to his lovely wife Karen. The front and back covers are made out of paper covered chipboard and the insert is made out of one sheet of 12X12 paper. There are spots for four tags
I bound mine with ribbon and added a personal message on the backside. I've made several of these as gifts and they are always well received. People think they are just the neatest thing.
Here are some detail pictures of how I embellished the four tags, the front and back. On the back I left room for the couple to add some of their own notes to make it a special keepsake for them.
