T'was the night before Christmas...., well not quite but I am getting very excited!

Day seven in the "Twenty Four tags of Christmas", ( that has to be said like the Muppets said, "Pigs In Space") Just so as you know.
Tag seven has a pocket, this can be for anything, a card, gift card, money, whatever you like ..., that will fit.
Design a tag, much longer than normal. This one is 12 cm x 30 cm. Fold up the bottom 9 cm, this will create your pocket. You will need to punch one big hole at the top of the tag, and two little holes, one at each side. Here we will place brads as a method to close the flap, thus making a pocket.
Using your template cut out a tag.
Now for the fun bit, gather up "Stuff" of a Christmas nature.  Tags wrapping paper, paper chains, ribbon and the like. Don't forget rubber stamps.

Festive ribbon trims the top of the pocket, with two brass brads to secure the pocket. Inside the pocket we have rubber stamp image of sheet music and a ginger bread man, who seems to have run off whilst the photo was taken, and various gift tags. The front of the pocket is part of a Christmas gift tag cut to fit.  Black the edges!

See you later. x
