Throwback Thursday Floral Tapestry Tag Pocket Tutorial

Throwback Thursday Memory Place Floral Tapestry Tag and Pocket Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement

Throwback Thursday Floral Tapestry Tag Pocket Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Are you happy that it’s Throwback Thursday?  Today I’m sharing this pretty Memory Place Floral Tapestry Tag Pocket Tutorial with you.  I had a few scraps left over after I finished making the Button Farm Club Folio Kit earlier this year.  There was not a lot to work with, but the papers were too pretty to toss in the bin, so I put on my thinking cap and came up with this vintage style tag pocket card .  I’m so glad I did!

It’s been fun digging through the Closet of Inspiration and Delight.  I’ve found all sorts of forgotten goodies there.  A hidden stash of metallic foil cardstock added a touch of shimmer and shine to this 5×7 card base.

I also found a stash of G45 Ivory Tags.  What a great way to stretch a paper collection!  You’ll see in the tutorial below how I had to get creative in covering this tag up with my scraps.  And how much do we love the chipboard background layer from Reneabouquets?  It lends such a lovely bit of texture and vintage charm to the finished project.

What do you do when you only have one 3×4 image card left?  Why, you mat it and tuck it into a tag pocket!

A Peek Inside

Here’s a peek at the inside of the card.  Create a tuck spot for a tea bag, add a little note card and you have a lovely little gift.  Use washi tape to attach a honey stick and you’re all set!

    Wow both the project and video are awe-inspiring. What is so appealing about your videos is your warm homestyle, friendly approach done with succinct instructions and a plethora of wonderfully useful tips. My goodness what your imagination can produce when you venture into that wonderful closet so aptly renamed, the “Closet of Inspiration and Delight.” I think of you and that closet as a dynamic duo that can and does indeed produce MAGIC! I have learned so much from you and your inspired projects/techniques. And I so appreciate your sharing those wonderful lists of sources for those delicious papers and embellishments you use! Your work reflects your generous spirit and engaging persona, Kathy. Yeah for Throwback Thursdays!
