Pocket tags .... with Julie


I think I am having a pocket phase.  They are showing up everywhere in my projects.  Mini book pages, layouts, and hey...tags.  Why not?  :)  I think it's because I like it when you can stuff more stuff into something, you know?  


I used the She Said line (love those corally-oranges and yellows!)  
For the bigger tag, I used a kraft tag I had laying around as a template.  Then I measured the top piece to make the pocket....use a small circle punch and punch in the middle BEFORE you sew it on.  


Use a smaller circle punch to make the hole thingy at the top.  That's totally not the technical term for it.
Adhere the circle, and then use your 1/4" hole punch to make the center.
I added some chipboard...and cut apart the arrows from the Arrows paper.  The 'Take Note' insert is a piece cut down a bit from the die-cut sheet.


For this tag, I actually used 2 of the journaling cards from the Notecards paper.  


Start by cutting out these two cards...then score 5" from the left and fold up.


Then sew the left and right edges...


I used my corner rounder on the top corners.
Then I punched a large heart (Recollections) from dictionary paper...and added garland.

Then I couldn't stop making tags...so I made these little quick ones:


I used a Recollections tag punch and some white card stock.  These are super simple, and meant to be quick little extras for birthday gifts, etc. 
I should explain...I used the 'blah blah blah' die cut because this tag is intended for my 13 year old daughter, Belle...who never EVER stops talking.  Seriously.
(I don't know where she gets it from.) 


You can't really see in the other picture, but there's jute string for attaching on each one.

Ok.  So then I saw Teresa's envelopes and thought...perfect, another pocket tag:


I added dictionary paper for background...and cut apart a journaling card for the extras.
Add the hole thingy at the top (same way as before) and some ribbon. :)

Ok...show us YOUR tags!  Or any of your projects...don't forget to link to the Featured Fan Friday post.  Or share it on the Teresa Collins Designs Facebook page.
