Arty Girlz challenge #1

The Arty Girlz challenge blog new Tuesday challenge is stamping, where you can make what ever you like as long as it involves stamping.

This is what i made a Honeycomb Tag book which was make using money envelopes (the kind you put the kids diner money in)

I cut the flaps off 4 of the envelopes, then glued them together with the fronts facing each other this is where the honeycomb bit comes into play you glue in an oval from top to bottom so the side's are not stuck together. see pic 2.

Then i cut 2 piece of card the same size as the envelopes but a tiny bit longer the font and back stamped my design on them and inked the edges in brown.(these are the front and back covers), then i glued them to the front and back of the envelopes, then a strip i cut of pattern paper to wrap around the spine inked edges and glued this in place.

For the tags i cut brown card to size (to fit inside the envelopes) and sniped the corners for the tag shape added ribbon on the ends with a stapler, and cut a thin strip of the pattern paper inked the edge with brown ink and added this to the ends and stamped the flower with brown ink
