Nov 11, 2009

Tag 311 Close Up

For the next sev­eral weeks I will be post­ing 12 altered pock­ets that when fin­ished and put together will cre­ate a 12 Day Advent Pocket Style Cal­en­dar. I hope you decide to play along as you too will end up with an adorable cal­en­dar. This project is still in the works and is an idea I have so I will not have a com­plete sup­ply list for you a head of time, just sup­plies used for that days pocket. I like to try to cre­ate some­thing each day and think this will be a fun project to have in the works. I already stamped my images and accented my Frag­ments Charms so which ever charm pocket I feel like work­ing on and fin­ish­ing that day is the one you will see the next. It is fun to have a lit­tle ran­dom­ness in my fairly struc­tured day.


  • Stamp image onto heavy weight white card­stock, ink on top of stamped image using Dis­tress Ink, lightly color image using jewel tone chalks.
  • Place glossy accents onto the back of a Frag­ments Charm and attach to stamped image. Using Alco­hol Ink, ink the top of the Frag­ments Charm, accent the Frag­ments Charm with rhine­stones and Dis­tress Stick­les, let dry. Once the Dis­tress Stick­les is dry apply a clear dry­ing adhe­sive to the edge of the Frag­ments Charm and apply Gold Ger­man Glass Glit­ter to the edge, let dry. Once dry tie a piece of red seam bind­ing on top.
  • Cover the front top half of a Size 5 — 4 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ office tag with pat­terned paper, fold the end up to cre­ate a pocket, cover the folded part of the pocket with pat­terned paper, stitch around the tag to secure the pocket, dis­tress the edges, ink the edges using Col­or­Box Fluid Chalk Ink — Creamy Brown, apply Sil­ver Ger­man Glass Glit­ter ran­domly to the edges of the pocket.
  • Attach a vin­tage but­ton to the top cen­ter of the tag, accent the tag using lace, a holy pick and the altered Frag­ments Charm
  • Cut a piece of Kraft paper and cre­ate a strip to write one fun hol­i­day thing to do that day, fold in half and place inside the pocket.

    Love it! Is that TATTING I see! My great grand­mother taught me how to do this when I was in 8th grade. Sadly, I don’t do it much any­more, but I need to get it out so I remem­ber how to! She always used it on pil­low­cases and sheet sets.
