A File folder style tag holder!

This is a tag holder I created to gift my hubby on Valentine's day. Just wanted to give him something other than a card. Was browsing through Google for ideas. Then decided on Tags. But wanted a holder for the tag. Suddenly I remembered the tutorial post by Priya on Crafters corner challenges. I just followed the tutorial and created my version. 

I didnt want to try out any twist from the tutorial becoz of limited time..He was out of town n had to finish it n keep it as a surprise before he returned home. So I had to complete it last week itself.

So, here is my version of it. 

The Outer look with tags inside 

Looks like this when opened 

Used a Velcro to keep the holder intact when closed

The Box with the Tags. This is will be the sixth valentine's day since In got to know him. So made Six tags.

Front view of the tags. Just added some Embellishment and left it blank for me write my thoughts before I hand it over to him. 

The other side of the tags. Distressed it and added some Quotes.

Hope you all like it. Happy crafting.
