Cut a piece of handmade paper to fit the front of the trifold mini and use a white glue to adhere the paper. Trim excess paper away.
Apply a fast grab tacky glue along the two long edges of each pocket, as shown.
Fold them up and clamp each pocket together until the glue dries. I used a heavy weight for the center pockets since I didn't have any clamps long enough to reach.
I used an Adirondack Gold paint dabber to edge the two side edges and the edges along the flaps.
Turn tags over and cover the back of each stagger tag with a print paper from Tea Thyme.
I printed these collage images of Geishas, trimmed them, then layered each onto a piece of gold paper, then onto black card stock, before gluing them to the inside pockets, as shown. I also added the large photo clips with brads, which will work to keep the flaps closed. (NOTE: I should have done this before gluing the pockets, but with determination, I was able to carefully get inside the pocket to spread the brad prongs.)
The three tags will fit nicely inside the three pockets. You can add small photos, collage images, quotes, or add some personal journaling to the tags.
I finished off the front and back of the trifold pocket min with a few more Geisha collage images, flowers, and a few metal embellishments I had on hand. I used a piece of gold elastic to keep the mini book closed.
