These are so fun and easy to make....
I whipped a few out the last couple of days after designing the pocket in SCAL 5 Pro. One piece for the main pocket and 2 bands to go around the top and the bottom of the pocket. The skycut required about 1 1/2 minutes to do the cutting and scoring. Once you have added the inking, texture and embellishment, assembly is accomplished with a seam in the back and gluing the bottom edge together. Glue on the bands and add your hanger.
I used wire for the hanger, but ribbon, twine or other fibers would work well. Fill the pocket with whatever your heart desires.
Silk flowers were used in the 2 pockets above.
For this pocket, we added Spanish Moss (green) and a paper air plant (file from Creative Fabrica). The air plant was made using white sketch paper and colored using some spectrum noir markers and the Ebrush by CraftwellUSA.
Labels ( Label Creator Font found here) are printed with an inkjet printer on tissue paper. Let dry for about 15 minutes before using Matte acrylic medium to apply to the pocket. You can add some additional inking around the edges once the medium has dried to cover the edges of the label that was applied to the pocket.
While some of the details can't be seen in the images, you can also use a scoreboard and score some lines from the back of the piece to make the pocket look like it has some ridges like a can might have. Then use a ball stylus to emphasize the ridge a bit. This is a great way to add some additional texture and interest to you piece. You can also use an embossing folder to add interest. Lots of options to make each pocket unique and have your personal touch.
Thanks for stopping by and hoping that you've set aside some creative time this week. Enjoy it!
