For these pocket tags (I made 28 total) I needed a little more than half of a 6x6 pad of paper (Echo Park Apothecary Emporium), I used up two rolls of ribbon (and then used ribbons from my scrap bin to complete), Doodlebug twine, and SRM stickers.
I also love making little treats for teachers, but since my two children have so many teachers, teacher assistants, and therapists, there are a lot of people to recognize. In order to keep my spending costs down, I am challenging myself to use my craft room stash and not purchase anything new for the entire school year.
I created 27 trail mix packages at the start of school, and all I purchased was one large bag of trail mix. This time I purchased only one Hershey snack-size bag of candy…everything else came from my stash!
- Cut black card stock at 7 1/4" x 3 1/4". (I got three out of a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11"…yes, there will be scraps.)
- Scallop the short end using a border punch.
- Notch the other two corners to look like a tag (I used a Stampin' Up! corner punch.)
- To create the "pocket" score at 2 1/4" from the scalloped end.
Decorate: I used 6x6 paper, leaving no scraps (*almost*)
- Cut a 3"x3" square from patterned paper, notching to top corners. Adhere to black card stock. *I got exactly four from a sheet of 6x6…no scraps!
- Using strong adhesive, tape up the two sides to create your pocket.
- Cut a 2"x3" rectangle from a coordinating patterned paper to decorate the pocket. Adhere to outside of pocket.*I got exactly six from a sheet of 6x6…no scraps!
- Embellish as desired.*I used some extra to punch circles for the stickers, so I did crete a few scraps…
