Are You New to Paper Crafting

Are you new to paper crafting and not quite sure where to begin? Have you been wondering what tools you will need to invest in to get started? Paper crafting is one of the most captivating hobbies, and with so many gadgets on the market, it can be hard to figure out what you need. It’s really easy to get started with low cost tools and supplies. You may even have most of these things already.

There are some tools I find myself reaching for over and over again. Check out theĀ top five paper crafting tools I recommend at the bottom of this post!

My sister-in-law sent me a message the other night saying that a friend’s daughter wants to get into making cards, and asked what supplies I’d suggest. I immediately told her about the top five paper crafting tools I’d recommend and the brands I like to use.

I’m sharing a project I made with my Cricut Maker. It’s a mini tag album, and you don’t need an elaborate cutting machine to make this. You can cut the pattern out with your scissors.

All You Need To Do

All you need to do is cut a rectangle 3″W x 5.5″H, and use a corner punch to decorate the top left and right corners. You can use a hole punch for the hole in the top center of the tag. If you don’t want to purchase a corner punch, you can just cut the corners at an angle. It’s that easy.

There is a freebie tag template in my Resource Library, and you can get access to it here. The password is “crafting”.

Make a base layer out of plain cardstock and a top layer using decorative cardstock for each tag. I cut out eight tags, but you can do as many or as few as you’d like, decorate and you are done. Super simple, right! You’ll have a beautiful mini tag album in no time.

Another fun thing to do with tags is to decorate them using mixed media products. Check out Pinterest for some great tag ideas.

I hope you enjoy making a mini tag album. There are so many possibilities.

Until next time.
