Stand and Salute Word Book

I bought the Stand and Salute cartridge as soon as my nephew joined the military.  I wanted to make something for my brother to put pictures in and decided on a word book.  The cartridge made this book so easy to make!  Time consuming, but easy.  I also used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More for the tags.   The end result is a book that is 4 ¾ by 12 inches long.  All the paper used in this book is from K&Company’s Ameriana pad, except for the solid sheets.

United We Stand is on page 62 cut at 2 ½ X7 ¼  with assorted left over stars attached with pop dots.


The pull out tag and envie on Page 2 are from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, cut at 2X3 1/2 .  The ribbon is from Joann’s.
The photo frame on page 3 is 3 ½ X4 ½  from S&S page 63 and the star is on page 32


Page 4 and 5 are just basic photo mats

Page 6 is another pull out tag from TBB&M cut at 3 ¼ X4 ½ .  I used left over paper and a MS punch.
Page 7 is another photo mat with the photo fitting behind the God Bless America cut at 5 ¾ X 5  found on page 68.  My Hero, page 66 is cut at 2 ½ X 4 ½ .  The stars again are on page 32.
Page 8 is another pull out photo mat.  The banner is on page 26, cut at 3 x 4 ½, the photo mat is 3 ¼ x 3 ¾ .  The star border is also on page 32.

Page 9 (last page) has two accordion type photo mats holding 4 photos each, shown below.  Each paper is 12 x 4 ½ , scored at 4 in intervals with 3 ¾ X 4 1/8 mats and ribbon to open the pages.  The eagle is cut at 4 inches, on page 29.
