Petite Pocket

Here's a really simple project I made using the Petite Pocket Bigz Die and the Big Shot:

The cool colour is one of our new In Colors (available 1st Sept) and it's called Pool Party.  I've stamped in Lucky Limeade (another new In Color) using Word Play and Delicate Doilies.  The closure is made using the little circley holey thingys that are part of the Die and I've added antique brads with some linen thread.

These little pockets are sized to hold gift card.

Here's one that's a tad more busy. 

The inspiration for this came from Bettty Traciaks blog.  She has amazing ideas for all sorts of lovely things.

Finally, the pocket we made as our Make n Take at the launch on Sunday:

I did this one in Island Indigo using the Button Buddies set and Whisper White Taffeta ribbon.   Cute don't you think?   You make the closure by punching two holes next to eachother in the centre of the flower and threading each end of the ribbon from back to front.   Wrap your ribbon band lengthwise around the pocket and pull the ends so the flower sits flat, then tie a knot or bow and trim the ends. 

Tell the recipient that they don't need to untie the bow to open the pocket, they can just slide the band off sideways.

The insert is a small card with Happy Birthday stamped on it and  I've used a bit of linen thread throught the circley holey thingy so you have something to grab onto when you pull it out of the pocket.

Happy Tuesday.
