Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: This is one of those things that starts slowly and the more you build up on them, the more you want to keep adding. These tags can be as dramatic or basic as you want them. I have chosen them to be somewhere in the middle or perhaps just a bit beyond the middle. As you know, I have a ton of stashed items for my doll making. While I know pretty much what is where, I just think having these lovely tags hanging from boxes will serve to keep me organized and motivated at the same time. What’s better than having something pretty to look at all the time, and know that it came from your creative hands.

Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: This tutorial is adapted from an article found in the magazine “Cloth Paper Scissors” July/August 2007 issue. The artist for the paper beads is Kelli Perkins and I have greatly reduced the technique. If you wish to use more advanced techniques for the paper beads, I highly recommend finding a copy of the magazine above, there is far more information there than what I have included.

I was planning to do something in the way of an art card, but when I started looking through some drawers, I found a little kit to make this post it book and thought it would be perfect for this. I have included directions to make the book and if you like it well enough you’ll be able to make other styles of the same thing by just resizing the paper and hard board to suit your needs. The post it book is an easy surface to work with as would an ATC or whatever your fertile imagination can concoct.
