I'd just gotten my new Spiced Marmalade ink pad and had to use it! I tried to get the cats to peek over the top of the flap, but that was harder to do than I thought. I dressed these up with a lot of bling, with the crystal brads from Making Memories and the Bling for Things stickers I found on clearance at Ms. The Bling was meant to be reusable and to be put on cell phones, etc, but I like them on these cards.
I made the tags with my Coluzzle template, and trimmed white CS to fit. To make the pockets I cut out sheets that were 8.5" by about 4". I scored them so the tags would just fit inside, then cut and/or trimmed the other half so it was 'short enough' -- no measurements, sorry. I trimmed the patterned paper so that one piece was just slightly longer than the top panel and the other just longer than the bottom panel. Gotta conserve that paper, I only have five billion sheets of it! :) Cut ribbon just long enough to wrap around the flap and adhered with the Walmart equivalent of Sticky Strip, placed brads on, then adhered the flap to the rest of the pocket.
Thanks for looking!
