YPP swap

I've been working on this project most of the week ... it is a swap on Your Paper Pantry called Pocket for Your Thoughts ...

It is suggested that you construct a 5" x 7" 'pocket' from a manilla envelope and fill it with a minimum of four tags plus a small ($1) gift for the recipient ...

I didn't have any envelopes so made my pocket from kraft cardstock ... this is how it all turned out ...


My 'pocket' is stuffed with all of these ...


So in more detail ...


A size 8 tag using Oxford Impressions and Paperartsy stamps (links in sidebar) ...


An ATC with an envelope - Oxford Impressions stamps ...


Another envelope with a small tag - Oxford Impressions and Stampington stamps ...


... and the backs ...


A dress form tag - Oxford Impressions, Tim Holtz and Prima stamps ...


... the back - stamps are Tim Holtz (crown) and Character Constructions ...


A row house just because I like making these - Oxford Impressions and Paperartsy stamps ...


The back has been left pretty plain ...


An envelope - Above The Mark stamp ...


This is the other side ... and it contains ...


Three stamped pieces ... Finally I have wrapped my gift ... but what's in there is a secret ...


I made three of these - all similar - and really enjoyed it.
