Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal: Carta Bella Home Again Altered Etcetera Tag & Folio
Hello, Friends! I’m so excited to share my Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal with you today. This idea has been rumbling around in my head for weeks, and I’m truly tickled with result. It’s home decor, it’s an organizing tool and it’s a folio all in one. I think you are going to love this Carta Bella Home Again Altered Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag & Folio!
If you’ve never worked with a Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag before, you are in for a treat! The tags are made from thickboard: a thick sturdy surface that is perfect for collage, altering and embellishing. The small tag we use in this project measures a generous 5 1/2″ x 10″; a perfect size for home decor. And what collection could possibly be better for home decor than Home Again? The fresh farmhouse vibe, the pretty patterns and the soothing color palette are delightful to work with.
You all know me so well…I like pretty…but I like practical, too. So I designed this tag with a big ole slash pocket to hold an altered notebook. It’s the perfect place to jot down a to do list, menu plans, emergency contact numbers, grocery lists….or a little daily gratitude journal. There’s room to tuck a pen into the pocket, too so everything you need will be right at your fingertips.
Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal: The Folio
The flip side of the tag houses a delightful tri-fold folio. You’ll learn how to paper piece this adorable little house on the cover…and just wait til you see what’s inside!
This sweet little folio is filled with flips, flaps, pockets, tags and room for loads of lovely family memories.
The waterfall feature will house (18) 4″ x 4″ photos. And the other photo spots are designed for photos ranging in size from 4″ x 6″ to 3″ x 5″. And, if you add a little bulldog clip to the sides, the folio will stand upright so you can display your beautiful family photos.
I think this would make a wonderful bridal shower gift, house warming present, birthday gift and…Mother’s Day will be here before we know it! The color palette almost reads as a neutral, so it would go with almost any home color scheme.
