I was super inspired by the Chic Tags products and wound up making a bunch of projects to share with you today, including a quick tutorial for my favorite bookmarks. 

Envelope Bookmark Tutorial:


Step One: Grab any envelope. Measure the triangle up against the corner of the envelope and cut the corner off the envelope. 

Step Two: Measure and cut some coordinating paper against the envelope triangle. I used the paper from the awesome Chic Tags packaging. 

Step Three: Glue the paper to the envelope triangle. 

Step Four: Add the triangle embellishment and decorate! I used Sakura Souffle pens to decorate mine. 


Love This: What a great pack of tags! One of my favorite techniques is to just overload a whole package of something onto a layout and really make it the focal point. Kind of turn everything upside down a bit. 

Road Trip Mini-Book: I put together a quick mini-book for our upcoming Road Trip to Vermont. Making books in advance means that I’ll definitely document our trip immediately, instead of putting it off indefinitely.
