My Pretty Little Pouches (coming to my Etsy shop soon) are all wrapped up with Wrinkle Ribbon and have a Dainty Little Doily tucked over the pocket. Glittery chipboard accents that have been adorned with tied buttons rest on top to create a chilly feel.
Small Metal Rim Tags are tied to the Wrinkle Ribbon with purple twine.
This pocket uses some red accents and Wrinkle Ribbon.
The Cosmo Cricket chipboard accents are so easy to work with. They are adhesive backed so all you have to do is peel and stick. Red Baker's Twine was used to attach the circle tag to the Wrinkle Ribbon.
Here are the journals that are tucked inside the paper pockets. I kept the embellishments simple so that these could be tucked into a tote without getting scuffed up too much.
My Medium Purple Parcel Tags coordinate perfectly with the purples in the Mitten Weather collection of papers. I used a label stamp and die and adhesive paper to make a sticker and then stamped it with sentiments from the Get to the Point stamp set. The *things to do* sentiment was stamped on additional patterned paper and cut with notches to add a fun accent. Vintage Buttons were used to accent a Small Clothespin covered with purple flock.
The journals were created with sheets of graph paper, some vintage ledger papers, and a piece of Mitten Weather patterned paper for the cover. The finished size of the journals is 5.5" x 8.5. Simply stack the papers together and stitch down the middle with your sewing machine. Cute stickers liven up some of the inside pages.
I also made a small notecard for each pocket. These use Papertrey's Kraft envelopes and were adorned with Dainty Doilies cut in half, a PTI sentiment and more of the chipboard elements.
Cards go together really quickly when use the Cosmo chipboard elements. Simply add patterned paper to the card front then add chipboard tags that have been tied with Wrinkle Ribbon and red baker's twine.
I added glitter to the tags for a little winter sparkle.
Perfect little cards that can be used for thank you notes, Christmas cards, etc.
A FUN little pocket of goodies that the recipients will LOVE to receive.

Note: I will have some Wrinkle Ribbon that coordinates with the Mitten Weather collection in my Etsy Shop soon. Also, I've created a few fun kits that would go well with the Mitten Weather goodies too. Enjoy!
