    Step 1

    These are the tags you will need. I chose to use the create and inspire word tags for this project.

    Step 2

    Using another square tag use the side of the tag and draw a line beside the word a similar distance to the other side of the word.

    Step 3

    Using another tag place along the line drawn and trace around the rounded corner of the tag as shown.

    Step 4

    This is what it should look like once the corner is drawn around.

    Step 5

    Draw a straight line along the top of the tag at the desired height.

    Step 6

    Use the other tag once again to mark out the corner.

    Step 7

    Using the other tag place along the top line and trace around the corner again.

    Step 8

    This is now what the tag should look like.

    Step 9

    Now cut out.

    Step 10

    Get the other word tag.

    Step 11

    Place the worded piece cut from the tag on the top of the full tag and trace around as shown.

    Step 12

    It should look like this, then cut out.

    Step 13

    The sides are the same height as the centre tag.

    Step 14

    Now using the worded piece, place on top of tag piece and trace around.

    Step 15

    Should look like this, then cut out.

    Step 16

    Front and back of worded sides.

    Step 17

    They fit together nicely.

    Step 18

    Coming together well.

    Step 19

    Now you will need the two scraps of the word tags that are left.

    Step 20

    Trim off the top and bottom to leave only a strip.

    Step 21

    Fold in half.

    Step 22

    Attach to word tag piece as shown.

    Step 23

    Attach to other side word piece as shown.

    Step 24

    Now attach both sides to the centre tag as shown.

    Step 25

    Showing back of tag. Cover the side back pieces with the coloured paper of your choice and attach when ready.

    Step 26

    The base bi-fold standing tag is now ready for you to embellish any way you choose.

    Step 27

    Step 28

    Standing nicely.

    Step 29

    Thus is how I chose to embellish mine. Lots of fussy cut details from the gorgeous Graphic 45 Worlds Fair collection.

    Step 30
