Today I’m sharing a tutorial using strips to create journal cards tags and pockets. I tend to cut down papers and have a bunch of strips left over. In this tutorial I’ll show how I decorate the strips and then use these to create journal cards and tags.

Gather up strips to alter and turn into journal cards and tags. Paste a few strips to a larger sheet so that it is easier to decorate the strips. I used a small dot of glue to hold the strips in place.
Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists over the strips. Next, layer a stencil over the strips and spray with more Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Dry the page.
Stamp images over the strips. I used the Corner Roses Stamps in the video. Repeat decorating strips in different colors and stamped images. Remove the strips from the parent sheet and cut into smaller pieces.
Adhere cut strips on a book page. I decided to make it look like floating bricks.
Add more texture using another stamp and use embossing powder. Stamping with Versamark Watermark Ink and then sprinkling with Gold Glitter Embossing powder gives a touch of sparkle. Heat set the embossing powder. Don’t touch until it cools.
Grab a few blank journal cards and tags. Cut the page into strips or pieces to create journal cards, tags and a couple of pockets.
For my tags and cards I stamped the Corner Roses and then layered stamped words.
