Hello again, friends of CropStop! It’s Karen Letchworth here today sharing a Pretty Petaloo Pocket I created using a simple kraft paper lunch bag. It’s VERY easy to do. You simply fold the lunch bag half way up, add a piece of patterned paper, and machine stitch it down – creating a pocket. Now, you can tuck in a gift card, note, photo, cash, etc.
Once I had created my pocket, I added a half doily, some words using a rub-on (“for”) and die-cut (“you”), a little tag, and then the GORGEOUS bow using some navy blue tulle, baker’s twine, and lovely Petaloo Sugared Berries in Red, tied with Natural Burlap String. To the top right, I also added a sweet little Tim Holtz Paper Clip to give my project a feminine touch.
These sweet little pockets are very easy to create, and are a great way to make something special when giving a small gift. CropStop has everything you could possibly want to help make your cards and projects look amazing. I hope you will stop by to check out all the wonderful products carried at CropStop, and then play along in the current challenge.
