Here are the photo’s and directions for the

Gatefold Tag Inserts

from yesterday’s What’s Up Wednesday video!

Here’s how to make the tags:

Start with a 4 7/8″ x 10 1/2″ piece of card stock. (This is for a 5 1/2″ square envelope, you will need to adjust your sizes for other sized pockets or envelopes) Score and fold 2 5/8″ from each end.

Holding the two flaps together, punch a half circle in the top of the flaps.

Add patterned paper to the flaps and body of the tag. For the flaps, cut two 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ pieces. For the inside and back of the body, use 4 1/2″ x 5″ pieces. Distress if you want. Check out my video of these tags for my “Double Distress” technique.

Add a cool flower (like this ones I used from Prima with a punched flower backer) or another embelly of your choice. This “tag” is a fun option instead of the ol’ single layer flat tags. It doubles your photo/journalling area, too!

Here’s the Slide show of the finished album.
