Tag for Grandson’s Journal

I found a journal I want to give to my grandson. He is a serious, contemplative and reflective young man, and I think he might enjoy keeping a journal, provided it looks like a “guy-journal.”

This tag will be included with the journal, possibly to serve as a bookmark, or he may choose to put it on his bulletin board. I covered a #8 manila tag with kraft resist card stock (found a page with lots of music notes on it—he loves music, sings and plays guitar and keyboard). I used Wild Honey and Fired Brick Distress Stains, and the coordinating colors in Distress Ink. I used a lot of Vintage Photo around the edges. I printed the verse on natural sticky-back canvas.

The key has the word “life” on it—this particular verse is a key life verse! The verses here are not new ones for my young man—he lives out these verses already. Here, they are just reminders for him. I’ll tuck the little items inside the bag (love how the bag seems made just for him) and give it to him, just because…

…just because I’m his Mamo.

Thank you, Buttons! Actually, he is such an expressive young man and was very careful to tell me how much the gift means to him.
