Hello Friend

Hi, it's S@ndy Diller here with you today.  I have a colorful Tag Book with a message that can be used any time of the year.  I've used the Karen Burniston Tag Book Pop-Up to create this card.  

The cover is totally deceiving because it looks like any ordinary tag but just look what happens when it is opened. 

Now I think you will agree, this is fun and unexpected.
I have a photo tutorial for you below but you can see a complete step by step video from Karen by

Die cut the cover of the tag book - shown in red -  you will need 2.   
Cut one hinge.
Cut the support pieces - you will need 4 of each.
Cut 2 inside pieces shown in yellow above.
Join two outside tags together using the hinge.

Cut all decorator pieces for the inside of card - they are included in the die set.

I like to decorate my card while it is flat.

Join the two inside sections together using the tabs in the center.
Add to outside card base lining up the rounded sections.
Add support pieces.

Add the two rectangles using the decorator pieces in coordination colors.
Using the Just A Note word set, add words to front.

Using the Flowers & Bee die set, add decorations to the front.

Using the Greeting Word Set, add Hello Friend to inside panels.

Using the Flowers & Bee die set, decorate the inside of the card as desired.
As a finishing touch, some twine was added through the tag holes.

Don't forget to check out the video HERE.

This is a fun card to make, easy to put together with lots of impact, I hope you will try it.
See you next week.
