Instructions

Step 1
Cut an 20.3 x 7.6 cm (8"x3") tag from the white cardstock sheet. Cut a 17.8 x 6.3 cm (7"x2½") rectangle from a blue print in the stack; adhere it to the bottom section of the tag. Cut a 16.5 x 5.1 cm (6½"x2") rectangle from a coordinating print in the stack; adhere it to the centre of the previous cardstock piece. Cut a 4.4 x 12.7 cm (1¾"x5") rectangle from your book page; adhere this to the centre of the previous cardstock piece.

Step 2
Cut a 8.9 x 6.4 cm (3½"x2½") rectangle from the blue print used above. Adhere this at an angle as shown in the image to the front of the tag. Cut a 8.3 x 5.7 cm (3¼"x2¼") rectangle from the red cardstock sheet. Adhere this to the centre of the previous piece. Cut an elongated oval that measures approximately 7.3 x 4.8 cm (2-7/8"x1-7/8") at the farthest points. Add your desired sentiment to the centre of the oval using the alphabet stickers.
