Seed Packet Pocket

Over at Flourishes the lovely Stacy Morgan has a tutorial on making a gift card pocket from a paper bag.  Such a cute idea!  The challenge is to make something similar.  Well, I decided to make my paper bag into a pocket holding flower seed packets.  I only have white bags, so I stamped mine all over using an image from Flourishes Garden Dreams set and Memento Potter's Clay ink and Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.  I created the pocket, trimmed the top of the bag, and then punched some white cardstock with  Martha Stewart picket fence border punch, cut that to size and stuck it to the top of the bag.  Next, I stamped another image from Garden Dreams with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics and die cut it with a Spellbinders Classic Oval die.  Then, I die cut some Old Olive cardstock with Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval Template Die and popped the image piece on top with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment (from Flourishes In The Garden set) with the Potter's Clay ink onto white cardstock, die cut it with the smallest Spellbinders Labels 8, sponged on some Bamboo Leaves ink and glued it to an ice block stick.  The stick and image piece were then added to the front of the project, and finally I popped a couple of flower seed packets into the pocket.  Result = a cute little gift for a gardener!!

Copic Colours used were:  E11, E13, E15, Y21, Y26, G20, G21, B0000, B000, B00, R01, R02, YG93, YG95, V04, V06, V12.
