This week, the Brutus Monroe team had the pleasure of teaming up with KAREN BURNISTON to show off some of these amazing pop-up dies they have available! I was so excited to play around with this TAG BOOK POP-UP, because as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to turn it into a mini album! I originally had in mind to create an album of photos to send off to grandparents, but this one turned out so cute I decided to keep it for myself!
I started out by die cutting all the pieces from the die set. At first, I was a little intimidated by the dies, but I actually found it very simple to put together! Even if you seem to have a little trouble with the dies, Karen Burniston has a video on how to assemble the pop-up tag booklet:
Not very complicated at all! I cut all the pieces out of white cardstock, and then I chose a few patterned papers from my stash to cover certain areas with.
I also used some of the die cut embellishments from the die set as well, including the banner pieces and the cute little paperclips and hearts. To make these match my patterned papers, I chose a few colors of SURFACE INKS
that coordinated perfectly!
For my photos, I chose a group of pictures I took of our baby girl at bath time. To keep them all coordinating and not getting too busy or competing with the patterned paper, I printed them out in black and white. Trimmed down, they fit perfectly onto each pop-up panel.
I also added some white threads and ribbons to the tops of the tags. I love that the die set even includes the tag reinforcements! Adding them with a bit of glitter cardstock gave such a fun and pretty look to the album!
For the outside cover of the album, I chose some more coordinating papers to cover it with. I also added some more embellishments and a photo of my baby girl.
This was such a fun project to work on and I was happy to get the chance to work with this Karen Burniston die set! It would be so easy to change up the themes and styles for this tag booklet for any occasion, and adding photos to the album really gives it a fun twist!
Thanks so much for popping by the blog today! Please make sure to check out each of the Brutus Monroe team members’ blogs, too. They have more projects to show off using Karen Burniston dies!
