Mini Pocket Tag Card Set

by Anne Harada

Mini Pocket Tag Card Set



  • For this project, I’ve made little tags with the wonderful Inkadinkadoo set called “Boxed Wishes”.
    I used the tags to make a set of mini pocket cards.

  • I chose three of the six images from the "Boxed Wishes" set and colored them with Copic markers.

 I cut them out and added a circular clip and some hemp twine to each one to make the tags.

 Next I created the card bases by folding a 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" Kraft piece of cardstock. 
    I trimmed a Bahamas panel to 2-1/4" x 4" for each card and adhered one to each of the card bases. 
    Using a gold Sharpie pen, I added dotting around the border.

 To make the outside-pockets of the card, I punched a Martha Stewart's Trellis Border out of Pineapple CS. 
    I trimmed them to 2-1/4” wide, than applied glue only to the bottom and very edges of the sides to create the pocket so the tags could be slipped inside. 
    I wrapped each panel with a light blue satin ribbon and tied a knot around each ribbon to make a “bow”.
    I punched three Strawberry Splash CS flowers with a Martha Stewart Cosmos flower punch.
    I used my button as a template to pierce my holes into the center of the flowers.

  • I threaded hemp twine through the top of the trellis and then added on the flower and then the button, then tied the knot on top.

  • Finally, I inserted my tags into my cards!

  1. This is gorgeous, Ann. Our Stampers Corner yahoo group is going to do these for our card of the month in December. So your tute will be put to great use, I'm sure, by many of the participants. I think I will even make one. Thanks so much! xoxo, Aimeslee Winans
