Fabric Tag Book

The current swap challenge on the Art 'n' Soul Flickr group is to make a tag book.  Any shape and any medium, but the theme is 'beautiful buttons'.

I chose to use fabric for my book which consists of four pages.

I cut the tag shapes with a Sizzix Bigz die 'Tag, Super Scallop Crescent' using various fabric scraps.

Each tag page is a sandwich of fabric, light wadding, brown paper and more fabric.  I embellished the pages with various buttons, lace and ribbons.

Here are all the pages

Try as I might, I just cannot get the photos to appear side by side (I managed it with the first two - don't know how!)

The challenge runs until 30th January, so I'm nice and early!



This is just awesome.................Thanks for taking time to show us...............your hand made craft. HUGS MARY

Wonderful tag book Sherry! Like that you have made it squishy by using wadding. I think the reason you can't get the other pictures to sit side by side is that they are too wide for the column - if you made them a bit smaller and therefore thinner they should work.
