Twin Tag Mini-Albums

A couple of months ago I was inspired by this tag mini-album that Helena created about a recent trip. I knew this would be a great project for the twins' summer visit, and since Helena also provided some downloadable tags, I was set. I added my own words to the blank tags, printed two sets onto colored cardstock, and then all cut out before the twins arrived.


On the last day of the twins' visit, I uploaded photos to the Walgreens right down the road and we were ready to put these albums together. Paige & Laurie added short lines of journaling to the front of the tags. (I am so proud of their excellent handwriting skills!)


I cropped photos to fit around the journaling for the front of the tags, then coverd the back of each tag with a photo. Each mini-album contained ten tags.



I put the tags on a jump ring and added a few ribbons to complete the albums.


This was a fun project to complete with the girls, and they had a memento of their trip to take home with them. Thanks Helena for the inspiration for this project!

Hi Melissa I'm catching up - what a feast of wonderful book related post you had waiting for me!

Your tag project is adorable, I think you have some scrapbookers in the making there. And Brenda's table runner? Beautiful!

Love this idea. Wish I had this when we went to Disney for the boys. I will have to remember this for the future.

That's an awesome idea! I love that. How fun for them to have a cool mini to take home. I've never thought to so something like that with my nephews but I wonder if they'd enjoy it????? Hmmmmm. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a fabulous idea, and I bet those lovely girls will always remember this! You may have jump-started two of the next generation of scrappers. :)
