The other day I posted about this new Fiskars squeeze punch designed by Jenni Bowlin. It’s a file folder tab. It’s the perfect size to write a date or a name or to use just as an embellishment. But I also had an idea that would be perfect for something I really needed for Project Life.
In my PL 2012 album, I’m planning to include photos of all the movies I see, all the books I read, all the audio books I listen too. I wanted to have something I could staple onto the image of the movie poster or the image of the book to say “Watched” or “Reading”. Why not print the words I needed onto cardstock and punch them out?
Tutorial: Project Life Tabs
Step 1. Create a document in a word processing program with all the phrases needed: Reading, Watched, Listening to, Making, Obsessed with, In the news, etc…
Step 2. Add three blank rows between each line of text. That gives enough room between the lines so that you can punch each word cleanly. (Every program is different so you may want to experiment with the spacing to get it just right.)
Step 3. Print the document onto whatever color cardstock works for you.
Step 4. Punch out each word in the row and then trim off the punched line so that you have room to go in and punch the next row. Repeat until you punch out all of your words.
Now I have these fun tabs to add to various photos in my PL album.
Here’s a peek at how I am using them:
I have been catching up with my 2012 Project Life but don’t have enough photos printed yet. That’s why I am not sharing mine on a weekly basis – I don’t print all of my photos at home. But when I get prints, I will be sharing some PL12 updates!
If you have this punch, I hope you give this idea a try!
Thanks for stopping by today!
