Step 1 – I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut out the elements in the kit that I wanted to use in the pocket card. If you don’t have access to a cutting machine, use your scissors to fussy cut each element out.

Handy Hint: When printing the pocket make sure you resize it to the same size as the back of the pocket.

Using the paper trimmer with the scorer blade, score the edges of the pocket and fold.

Step 2 – Using your double-sided tape adhere the pocket front to the pocket back.

Step 3 – This is the fun part where you get to start embellishing your pocket card. Press a hole punch into there top of the elements to create tags.

Step 4 – Thread through some Butchers Twine and use the glue dots to apply your buttons.

Now the fun part! Pop in all the elements and write a special message. Find a nice pen to gift with your pocket card so that who ever you give the pocket card to, can now journal on the tags and record their person memories on their special day.

You can highlight each element with ink but I just LOVE these images just as they are with their beautiful soft colours.
