I should have ordered this punch! I know, I know, I have a LOT of Stampin’ Up! goodies. And I am very happy with what I have. I run into problems when I go over to a friend’s house to play and she has toys that I don’t have. (No, I am not 7 years old.) I start to play, I get ideas, I go online and find more ideas, and before I know it, guess what’s at the top of my Wish List!
- Extra Large Two-Step Bird, Scallop Trim and corner rounder punches
- Real Red, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink card stock
- Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
- Chocolate Chip 5/8″ Satin ribbon
- Tombo Adhesive and Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write marker
- Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel and Pretty in Pink Jumbo Ink Cartridge
My inspiration for this pocket note is Becky Robert’s little note . I really liked her placement and proportions, and you can see I was very faithful to them. I added the simple pocket to dress up the presentation. You can make a pocket like this with just a few steps:
- Cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4″ x 11″ (here I used Pretty in Pink)
- Score at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/2″
- Cut off 1 1/4″ from the last score, making your last section 1 1/4″ wide
- Zig Zag fold to create a pocket
- Tie ribbon around the pocket to hold it in place – no adhesive is needed
Here’s the note outside of the pocket:
This little bird is just the right size for a card or page embellishment. There are so many different ways of mixing and matching patterns to create different birds, real or imagined! I’ve seen some beautiful birds that are very faithful to their feathered counterparts – this Chickadee is a great example. I wonder if I could make a sassy Mynah bird?
