November Mini Make & Take: Blessings Pocket

I love the pockets with numbered strips that you write on and tuck inside.
Little Yellow Bicycle and Close to my Heart both make them,
although I don't know if there is one specifically for counting your blessings.
However, you can also make them yourself, which is what I did for the
November mini Make and Take project.

I used the Cricut to cut the pocket and the strips. I manipulated
the designs on my Gypsy to make them the length and height I wanted.
The pocket came from Tags, Boxes, Bags, and More.
Each strip is just a rectangle from the Close to my Heart
Art Philosophy cartridge, that I made slimmer.

"Count Your Blessings" on the front of the pocket is a
Teresa Collins stamp that I found at the LSS awhile ago.
The square "frame" for each number is a
Studio G stamp, from a little monogram stamp set.
The numbers within the squares are from the
My Sentiments Exactly "Formal" Lower/Numbers set.
The Studio G and MSE stamps were much
older stamps that I've had for years.
