Pocket Scrapbooking Cards
1. Using the Standard Tag Maker, punch tag shapes from photographs. The tag maker punches tags that are 2 by 3 inches in size, so print your photos 3” by 4”. The tag shape adds a fun element to the photographs.
2. Punch about 8 to 10 tag shaped photos to make this banner. If you wish to make a longer or shorter banner, punch the number of photos for the desired length.
3. To add a pop of color and shine, adhere each tag-shaped photo onto a premade 3 by 4 inch pocket scrapbooking card. This is a fun way to stretch your supplies and make a quick banner.
4. Use some glitter clothespins atop each photo to add a little extra bling.
5. Attach a ribbon onto your mantle to make the banner.
6. Affix each photo onto the ribbon using the glitter clothespins.
7. Once the holiday season is over, you can dismantle the banner and easily store it as a pocket scrapbook page. To do this, simply unpin the clothespin and slide the photo card into the pockets.
Finally, just add some journaling to your page and pack the ribbon and clothespins away for next year’s banner.
