Middy Bitty Bag Tutorial

Hello Friends!!
Happy Wednesday!!
Heather here and today I would like to share with you a tutorial on how to make a mini tag album with the Middy Bitty bag.

Start out with folding your bag in half.  Then put the fold on the 3.5 inch mark (so you are cutting the bag to measure 3.5 inches).
Next you will fold the bag in half again and you will place the Scor tape on your bag in two places (please refer to photo below).
I used the Peachy Keen Lattice background stamp to stamp my background.  Stamp both sides.
I used vintage photo to ink all the edges.
You will want to cut 4 tags to stick out of the top of your bag and 2 tags for the sides.  Top tags measure:  2.25 " wide by 3.75" long.  The side tags measure:  2.75" by 3" long.  I used a punch on my tags below.
Feel free to decorate these how ever you wish :0)
Back to the cover.
I used a piece of digital paper from Gecko Galz for my cover.  It measures 2.25" wide by 3" long.  I inked the edges with Ranger's Vintage photo and used Scor tape to adhere the piece to the cover.
I Placed a piece of scor tape across the front of the album, and then
put the pink diamond ribbon onto the front of the album.  I folded my ribbon in half, and slid the album in between them, leaving an inch of the folded ribbon to the left (like a little handle).  I then put a piece of scor tape on the back of the album to hold the ribbon in place on the back
Next I used an Easter Image from Gecko Galz and the Text boxes I designed myself.  I used the Candi fix it foam pads to elevate the image and text boxes.  I used some art glitter designer glue and a fine tip applicator to apply glue to some of the pink plaid lines.  I added Just peachy glitter.  I used some Juliet lace, moss green leaves and watermelon baker's twine to dress up my cover.
I added some more Juliet Lace, moss leaves and a watermelon baker's twine bow.  Finished off the corners with some Candis.
I hope you have fun making one of these for yourself!! 
I also have a few pieces I did last week Using Goodies from
Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Altered CD two page Album.

I started out with a few pieces of  Core'dinations colorcore cardstock in pink, bluegreen,  greenblue and light pink and green.
  I used Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink on all my edges, and pop dots to elevate my layers.  The Rose on the front is one that I painted a while back in GIMP.  I created it into a die cut.  I used some of my favorite Moss green leaves, white crochet lace, pink swirls ribbon and cotton candy & teal baker's twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Another Book using the Bitty Bags
The base of the album was made with the Middy Bitty Bags.  I used 4 bags for this album, which creates 8 side pockets and 3 top pockets.  I have the exact measurements for what you need on my blog post here (I would post it here..but it is too
Using Stazon Jet black Ink, I stamped my flowers onto my Melon silk ribbon, and then inked it with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink.
I used my Crop-O-Dile to punch holes in the top of my three top tags.  Then I used the pink chevron and blue striped ribbons from RRR.  Yes, I inked them with RVP.

Another Album
I hope you have a fabulous day!
