Graphic 45 Couture tag journal tutorial - Make It In Minutes! by Renea!

Want to create a gorgeous gift or a place where you can journal and tuck in some of your favorite memories, but don't have a lot of time to put into it? Well, then I have a fast and FABulous project that you can put together in about 20 minutes, and it will look like you spent hours on it!! All you need is this month's Scraps Of Darkness Style and Sophistication Kit, a flower from the Floral Add On (or one from your stash) some glue and some foam tape and you will be set to create this Couture Tag Pocket Journal:

Step One:
Take the Graphic 45 Couture Collections - Accessorize Paper from the Kit and
Cut at 8 inches (You will have a 8 inch tall x 12 inch wide piece)
Score at 6 inches
Then fold in 1/2

Step Two:
Mark a 45 degree angle down the front side of the fold and cut away  the top section.
Glue open side and bottom together to form a "pocket".

Step Three:
Take the May Arts Black Lace cut to  fit angle and then adhere.

 Step Four:
Cut a 4 1/2 inch x 6 inch rectangle from the Graphic 45-Stunning paper in the Kit.
Distress the edges and ink with the Ingvild Bolme Rusty Bucket Ink from the Kit.
Center and adhere with glue to the pocket.

Step Five:
Fussy Cut out the "Simply Stunning" piece from the Graphic 45-Elegant Paper from the Kit.
Layer on top of the rectangular piece and adhere with glue.

 Step Six:
Create a pocket using the Graphic 45  Tags And Pockets piece.
Adhere with foam tape on top of rectangle.

Step Seven:
Take matching "Simply Stunning" tag from the Graphic 45 Tags And Pockets.
Punch hole at the top.
Take a 5 1/2 inch length of the Darice Trim from the Kit, cut it in 1/2, and tie one of the halves through the punched hole, and tuck the tag into the Pocket.

Step Eight:
Fussy cut the women from the Graphic 45-Elegant Paper in the kit.
Add it to the side of the pocket using foam tape down the backside and letting the lady in black overlap the pocket for wonderful dimension.

 Step Nine:
Take a stash flower or one of the Paprika Wild Blossoms from the Floral Add on and add it to the bottom of the lady in terra cotta's dress, then add in one dark and one light Kaisercraft Olive Paper Bloom from the Kit.

Step 10:

Cut out the remaining 4 Journal Cards from the Graphic 45-Elegant Paper.
Punch holes at the top, and use pieces of the May Arts Black Lace and Darice trims to form pulls.
Tuck the cards in layers into the pocket.

And there you have it - a wonderful pocket full of double sided pull out tags for journaling, placing small photos onto or for sending notes on!! A perfect gift or piece for any Fashion Diva~made in minutes!!
I hope you have enjoyed my quick and easy project and if you get a chance to create one of your own, please be sure to drop by and show it off ~Hugs~Renea
