Supplies Used for the Pocket

Grab any size book page for this project. The bigger the page the bigger the pocket. Linda had fun making narrow pockets that could hold book marks.

 Floating Pocket TutorialAfter creating the shell of your floating pocket, using pieces of scraps of paper. Linda chose to use gel print scraps that she had created.

You can also create something that can be placed at the top of your floating pocket. Linda took a piece of a paper bag, stamped with a stamp from the Journal QT with black archival ink.

Because this is a floating pocket you will want to decorate the back. Taking scraps of her gel print and another that she had sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Linda then layered them on the back and glued some digital images from Calico Collage and some stickers.

Using a scrap of paper grocery sack is a great way to add writing space. For her large folded tag, using the Mistletoe stamp with the archival jet black ink, stamped the outside and inside. The Christmas Bow stamp was created with gold embossing powder on red paper.
