Travel Week: Pick a Pocket

Hi everyone!  It's Tegan here today and I am going to show you how to make a paper pocket!  These pockets are oh so cute and can be used on your layouts to hold any trip souvenirs such as sand or brochures, coasters, tickets~ the possibilities are endless.  I found some money from Mexico in my purse AFTER I returned from vacation, so in the paper pocket it went.  The pockets can also be used alone and given as giftcard holders, cards, etc!  Let me show you!   Notice too I fussy-cut out a leaf and used it for the bird's wing...

                                                                And the pocket up close~

Let me show you how to make these super cute pockets- they are easy!

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed my pocket tutorial.
Until next time....
You can visit my blog here if you would like!
Have a great day!
