Friendship Tag book.

Friendship Tag Book Gift Set.
I'm not much for New Years Resolutions but I did tell myself that I have some really great Friends in my life and I need to tell them how much their friendship means to me every chance I get this year. So this is what I came up for as a B-day gift to a couple of very good friends.
I made two of these this one went to my good friend Kathi aka Kathi127 on SCS. The other that I forgot to take pics of was for Dawnmarie aka msjvb on SCS. They both loved the books which made me very happy.

The tag is made with a sizzix die 38-0946 Super Scallop Tag. I used this to cut chipboard found at a local paper distributor. Used the same die and cut the DP which is Basic Grey Wisteria (my Fav) used mod podge to glue together chipboard and DP. Then I use a foam pain brush and white paint and pain the edge and the hole in the top of the tag (I use a q-tip for the hole). I used my Bind It All to bind this book one of my Fav tools it has paid for it's self many time over. Then used stamps and lots of ribbon, brads, flat back pearls to finish up this book. The tin is from SU I used my Nesties to create the belly band and SU cardstock. Really a easy project to do but very time consuming. Lots of steps and drying time with liquid glue and paint but a TRUE FRIEND is always worth the effort!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
