Hi, Danielle here with an inexpensive project that would be a great gift for a friend, neighbor or coworker! I made a vellum pocket with 4 gift tags tucked inside using the Snow Village collection.
When creating the tags, I kept them rather simple and left room on them to write “to/from”. The two bottom tags in the photo below are just trimmed out from the journaling cards in the Gingerbread Man paper. You can leave them as is, or you can add a few embellishments to them, like I did with the canvas deer and berries stickers! The canvas stickers are such a quick way to add some pizzazz and texture to your project, just peel and stick! The other two tags are simply trimmed from the blue polka dot paper. Again, I simply added stickers, die cuts and chipboard over the top. Peel and stick, and you’re done!
Here is what the vellum pocket looks like without the tags.
To make the pocket, I cut two pieces of vellum with Papertrey Ink’s Front & Center die. This is a 5 x 7″ die. I trimmed one of the pieces down to create the front of the pocket.
Next, I machine stitched the two pieces together on the sides and bottom, leaving the top open to allow the tags to slide into the pocket. If you don’t sew, you can adhere the sides and bottom with vellum adhesive.
Using the Snow Village stamps, I stamped “Christmas” and “Joy” with Versamark Ink onto the front. Then the stamped image is heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Gold accents seem to be so hot right now!
Last, I dressed up the top edge of the pocket with a canvas sticker. There are so many cute canvas pieces in this package, as you can see in the photo below. Twine was wrapped around the pocket twice and then tied in a bow, and I added an Artisan chipboard star, another canvas snowflake sticker onto the star and a resin flourish. A few pieces of star confetti finish off the design.
Finished, this project looks as if you spent so much time on it! The recipient will be wowed!
