I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I enjoyed 2 great feasts with my family and had a great time watching lots of movies and just relaxing.
All this week I'll be sharing the last of my Project December creations that I've pre-made to go into my December pages. Today I'm sharing a 6 x 12 page protector that has (2) 6 x 6 pockets to hold receipts, tags, snippets of gift wrap, etc.
Let me show you how I created this insert. For product picks I'm using some October Afternoon and Studio Calico papers. I've also selected a few Washi tapes + some stitched, grid vellum pieces from my Stitched in Red Kits.
To create this strip I used some adhesive backed fabric strips from Studio Calico. I cut a 1" x 12" strip using my paper trimmer. I then trimmed my page protector 1/2" wider just to the right of where my 6 x 6 pockets will be. I then folded the 1" strip around the 1"x piece of page protector.
Tip: Make a mental note to save lots of receipts, tags, wrapping paper, clothes tags, gift sacks, ads, magazine cover, etc for your December Daily. I'm keeping a sturdy plastic envelope in my kitchen to collect the items and an in/out try on my work table for a daily deposit of papery goodness. When it comes time to work on a page, I can sort through the items and pick & choose some pieces to use. I think how cool it would have been to have the price tag for my beloved Hee Haw overalls I received as a kid! Yes, we were as country as it gets, people.
Here's the back side of the pocket page. The patterns you see are the back, or "B", sides of the patterned papers used to create the pockets. No need to add more papers and bulk to the pockets. I'll most likely add some photos here. Perhaps a photo collage created with the Diptic phone app. Or this might be a great place to add a longer story for the page this page will butt up to. Or if I want to make it really easy I can print a 6 x6 photo with some Phonto app journaling. I'll add a little tag under the paper clips to make good use of those.
