Wall hanging for tags...

Over on Rae's 12 tags of December  for the first day of the challenge Rae made a great folder out of an envelope so she had a great spot to pop her tags in.. I thought what a great idea but thought I would take it one step further and hang mine up but with the same sort of idea just changed it a little.. 

I again used my supply of manila folders and painted them front and back with the Gelli plate adding layers.. Then I got out my stencils and added shapes and colour to add a bit of pop here and there with the blending tool and distress ink.. Because I had mine separate unlike an envelope I was able to sew over all my washi tape making the slots that much sturdier.. I added fabric and lace at the top and bottom its sewed between the 2 manila folders and also added some dowel and a string hanger at the top.. I can still fold this in half as on the other side it still has a closure to fold it up like a book with a brad that I can pop the string around. I like having it hanging on my wall, it will be a great motivation to keep doing the rest of the tags so I can have it all full.

Have a great day
Sandy :)


  1. Wonderful, I will expect mine in the mail soon ;) I saw her instructions but did not understand them. So I won't be making one :( Yours is just beautiful.


Thank-you for the lovely comment..
