As promised, here’s the info on the little forget me not pocket I shared yesterday. I ended up playing with the digital cutter file and added the word “forever” hidden in the flowers. I hope that’s ok with you all.
And even though I am showing this project using a digital cutter file, clearly you can do it with anything your heart desires. Are you ready? Here we go with the tutorial.
Gather your supplies. You will need the diecut or whatever you want to put on the front, a sheet of paper for the pocket, adhesive, scissors, and whatever you want to decorate with.
Using the center of the paper for the point, roll the paper around in a cone shape. This will become your pocket.
Use your diecut as a guide for the size of the cone. Just eyeball it.
Once you get the size you want, flatten the cone down.
Open one side of the flattened cone and apply adhesive to the inner flap. This will keep your pocket closed.
This is your finished pocket. That wasn’t hard, was it?
Using adhesive or a glue stick, stick your diecut down on the pocket. Make sure you line it up so that the shape is centered on the pocket. I left a little overhang of the diecut so that it appears to float.
Carefully cut around the top edge of the pocket by following the top of the heart.
You posy pocket is technically a done deal now.
This is the fun part. Decorate the crap out of the front. I really wanted to bling the centers of the flowers or add some bling flourishes, but alas, I am bling challenged right now.
Once it’s decorated, flip the posy pocket over and gently open the pocket.
Fill with grass and goodies and it’s ready to hang.
If you make any of these, please post photos to the cheekymagpie flickr group. I’d love to see what you make!
