K&Co Tag Memo Pad

Here's a my tag memo pad that I made from a kit by K&Co... I must say that for what it contains I was not overly impressed as the kit was almost £7... included was a chipboard tag, self adhesive tag paper, some ribbon, a memo pad, pencil, wooden peg, self adhesive flower, thread, 2 buttons & a self adhesive sentiment & a magnet...
However, I do now have a template for future projects...
If they only made these kits cheaper I think they would sell hundreds of them as they are extremely quick & easy to make but there's no way you could sell them as you would have to charge £10 to make a profit... I know I wouldn't pay that for a piece of chipboard with some embellishments on it.

Anyway, the enclose good clear instructions & all you do is attach the paper to the tag, tie the ribbons through the holes, attach the buttons, thread & self adhesive sentiment, place the self adhesive paper ribbon across the peg which you then glue to the tag & attach the self adhesive flower to the peg... this was the one flaw I found with the kit as I actually had to stick the flower to card, cut around & then attach as the full of the flower back is sticky.
When all your glue is dry you insert your memo pad & pencil then attach the self adhesive magnet to the back.
It may have cost almost £7 but took only 5 mins to construct... and I will be making more of them from my own template & using up the left over bits & bobs from my stash.
Happy crafting

This is really pretty Lorraine,but as you say,a bit pricey for what it is.At least you can reuse the template.

OMG Lorraine i bought this same kit about 3 months ago and is still in the drawer although i did take it out of the packet and look and put back, i too thought a lot of money but thought i could use the template as well to make many more, intending on making some for mother's day but never actually getting around to it, maybe father's would like it for father's day for there shopping lists when they do the shopping (not) lol.
hugs Debra
