New dinosaur mini tag book with tutorial

New dinosaur mini tag book with tutorial

I had a fun making this for the recycle challenge on my craftmates forum
I cut the tags from recycle cardboard and a cute map from my sons class display which he had used me to guide me around the Dinosaur Museum.
See my video tutorial, also on youtube, for more details on how to make this. Now my kids want to make more of these. I will try new shapes.
I would love to see yours if you make one.....please follow me so I can visit your blog.... Please join my craftmates forum if you love crafting....we do fun challenges with prizes. We love show and tell....
