This little tag and pocket are the Make & Take that I designed for the LSS at the beginning of the month. Of course, the idea of using a punch at the top of a pocket is not new. I'm sure it's been done many times before. I noticed that a class project at the LSS used a Martha Stewart punch at the top of a tag pocket, and I liked how the teacher had used it. However, I made my pocket by hand from start to finish rather than using a die-cut. A tutorial follows in the next post down on this blog.
The stamp was from one of the Studio G clear dollar stamp sets I bought at Michaels, AC Moore, or JoAnn's a year or two ago. I think the flower punch is by EK Success. I punched three layers, creased each petal in half from flower center to outer edge of the petal, put a brad through the center of the three layered flowers, and bent the petals of the two top layers upward for dimension.
The tag is from a Sizzix die. The embossing on both the pocket and the tag was done with two Sizzix folders that came in the Baby Set #3 (Sizzix Textured Impressions). I positioned my pocket and tag on the embossing folders in a way that used only the parts of the folders that I wanted to use. One folder had writing which I did not want to emboss on my pocket, and the other had gifts and baby shoes that I also did not want to be embossed on my tag. Pictures that show the process and what the tag looks like outside the pocket will be posted another day.
