Imagine If DT Project - Tags

This week the Imagine If Design Team have been creating using some of the chipboard tags from Imagine If.  These are large tags and can be used for a variety of projects as you will see when you check out the Design Team Blogs.  If you start at the Imagine If blog you will find the links for the rest of the team.

This week I decided to make a note holder with a little booklet for Post it Notes.  The idea is that the notes sit in the little booklet and the holder sticks to the refrigerator using magnets.

These are two of the tags I used.

 I began by cutting the first tag to make the Post it booklet holder.  This is the piece that goes on to the refrigerator.

I then glued the pieces on to a piece of patterned paper and finished it off as you would for a book cover, folding over the edges and covering the inside with another piece of paper.

I then cut the second tag to make the Post It booklet cover and covered it in the same way.

I glued the Post It note pad to piece of cardstock so that once the pad is finished it can be replaced, then I glued the cardstock to the inside of the booklet cover.

Using Imagine If chipboard elements which I inked up using Tim Holtz Distress inks, a button and a coupe of brads I made a closure on the front of the booklet.  The top of the tag tucks behind the oval closure.

In order to close the holder and have it hold the booklet I used eyelets up both sides of the holder, which I then treaded with bakers twine.  I ran the twine through the holes up the sides across the back and through the hole at the top of the tag. I threaded beads on the to bakers twine and inserted a brad at the front of the holder to wrap the twine around to close the holder. I attached some beads to the bottom of the bakers twine and added some more Imagine If chipboard embellishments to the inside and the front of the holder.  I glued magnets to the back of the holder.

To get access to the Post it Note booklet it simply requires that the bakers twine be unwound from the brad and the front folds down allowing the booklet to be removed and replaced back in the same manner.  A sweet little project that can made for yourself or to give away as a gift. 

Please make sure that you check out the Design Team blogs as there are some stunning ideas and projects using these Imagine If tags. 

I hope that this project has inspired you to look at tags in a different light and please leave a comment if you have any questions and I will get back to you.


  1. What a great idea for storing notes! And having it attach to the fridge is perfect for all those little notes that usually float around my bench!

  2. Love your creative cleverness. :-)
