Christmas Paper Tag Bound Album

Christmas Tag Bound Album

I start making Christmas cards in June. Yes - June. I know - sounds crazy! But when mid-November hits, my card making is done and I can move onto other fun winter projects. Today on the blog, I’m making a Christmas tag album, perfect for decorating with photo memories or simply with beautiful paper. I always have lots of pattern paper scraps, extra embellishments, and Christmas stamps I have not used when my card making is done - What a great way to show them off and put them to use!

Let's get started!

supplies for DIY Christmas Tag Album

To get started, I used my Cricut and Design Space File to cut (12) tags and (3) hinges out of Silver Metallic cardstock. You can pick any of our wonderful, festive colors for this project. I made two other albums using Paver Red and Forest Green. In the file, I have also included an optional template (in orange) should you choose to decorate the tags.

Don’t have a Cricut?  Here are some options:

  • Die cut 12 large tags from a tag die, or use 12 5” x 5” squares of cardstock
  • The 3 hinges measure 3.25”x 3”, 2.75” x 3”, 2.25” x 3”.  Score at 1” from the right and left side.

Follow me in this video to see how I complete the assembly:

Tips and Tricks:

  • Want to resize this project? Make sure the height of your hinges are all the same and fit completely on your tag!
  • You can decorate your tags before or after assembly because of the flexibility of the hinges. Do not affix your eyelets until you have finished decorating!
