On Monday night we had a Stampin’ Up! group meeting with several of my downline present. It was great to see all of them and get our creative juices flowing! They were so kind to help me out with snacks and projects so that I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed. I knew that I wanted to see them and that it would do me good to try and do what I love — stamp! (and talk and socialize and eat!)
I prepared a small project that I had saved away in a file some time ago. I am sorry that I have no idea where it came from…..but it sure did turn out cute! These are very tiny little enclosure cards that you could put with a small gift for a friend, or a baked good. You decide! I think you could even punch a hole and use it as a hang tag.
The scalloped square is from the Big Shot Die Scallop Squares Duo (page 223, Item #120903) and it is NOT being retired. There are 2 sizes on the die, and this is the larger one. It measures about 3″ square. The pocket is made with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that measures 3″ x 3 1/2″. I have shown the pattern below. Score on the 2 sides and bottom at only 1/2″. Punch half of a 1″ circle punch at the top where your pull tab will be. Be careful that you put the 3 1/2″ side at the TOP and BOTTOM. This paper is “almost” square, so it is easy to get mixed up. Notice how I cut the corners at a diagonal. This reduces the bulk and allows the pocket to lay flat on the card. Use STICKY STRIP to attach it to the scalloped square.
I added punched flowers in the corner to tie all the colors together: Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, and Melon Mambo. You could also adapt this card to be a larger size using our large Scallop Square Die. It would take a small adjustment for the pocket measurements.
