First things First:

Now look here to see some of the inspiration:

Here's the cute little tags I made.  This was soooo much easier than I thought.  I didn't have the tool, but it worked out fine.  I can't wait to try it with the tool.

Here's the meander book that I made to hold them.

Follow the direction on the "Share the Love" link above.  I did the stencil technique from Tim's March tag.  Really awesome easy.  I used Ranger super find detail embossing powder.  Worked great!.  Check out the feathers.  Shrink plastic, alcohol ink, Tim Holtz feather duo die.  Too cute.  I left empty space until I get the mini roses die that comes with the twisty tool. 

Here's my cheat sheet for the image orientation on the meander book.

I actually cut the rows all the way through and taped them back together with tissue tape so that they would all be right side up.  Very happy with that solution.  If you use the paper with the little squares from the Tim Holz Wall flower stash you end up with a "collage" page facing a "background" page.  Nice.  I taped each pocket so that it opened from the top.  As you can see from the photo above, I cut a cover from another page.  You need about 1/4" spine.  It holds the book together nicely when you adhere it to the book's covers.  I didn't do the cover page flip from the video.

And just now, my 15 (soon to be 16) year old daughter just came home from a party, took it and has it on her desk "to admire it".  I'm sure I don't have to tell you - it doesn't get any better than that!
