My Pink Pocket Letter

Happy Friday Stampers!

I hope you have some fun plans for today.  It was supposed to snow last night so I was hoping I would get my 3 workshops in today.  In between and after them Jess and I will be working on things for Remi's first birthday.  We have some things we want to make.  I will be sharing them with you.  I still can't believe she is going to be 1 year old!  Where did the past year go?

Last week I shared the Pink Pocket Letter I received from my friend.  Today I am going to share the Pocket Letter I sent her.

I began by pulling my Pink Pirouette card stock and Pink Pirouette patterned paper stack.  I saw in a video where someone had made a large flap for the front of her pocket letter.  I decided to make one for my pocket letter.  After I had the flap created, I punched the bottom with a border punch I have.  I then added some patterned paper to the flap.  I needed a way to keep the flap closed, so I attached a mini magnet I had to the back of it and then wrapped a ribbon around the flap to hide the magnet.  I attached the ribbon in the lower left hand corner as I could then use my punched flowers to hid the seam.  I punched my flowers as well as a bow and some butterflies.  I added a heart in the upper right hand corner.  I topped my flowers and butterfly off with some rhinestones.  My flap was finished now to move on to the pockets.

I created a variety of different designs for the pockets.  I added some sentiments, I created a butterfly shaker pocket, a jeweled stick pin, and several interactive pockets.  I added my magnet to the middle card pocket and then covered it with paper and a punched image.  The magnets are used to hold the flap down.  I also added some ribbon down the punched spine and punched holes so it could be added to a binder.  Here are the pockets for my pocket letter.

Now that I had the front of my pocket letter and flap completed, I needed to add all my goodies.  I had picked up a few things here and there and also made some cute items she could use for other pocket letters.  I included some washi tape, rhinestones, tags, shaped paper clips, flower embellishments, and a bright pink notebook.  Here is a picture of all the items.

To finish off my pocket letter I wanted to make a charm to hang from the top hole.  I stamped an image on a strip of paper, cut a piece of glimmer paper, created a ribbon tag with ribbons, tulle, and feathers, as well as another punched flower.  All of the paper elements I covered with mod podge to protect them  Here is the picture of the charm.
