Papillon Potpourri Make & Take

Last night was my new catalog workshop and this was the 2nd make & take.  It's a petite pocket made using the XL die for the big shot and some raspberry ripple cardstock and it contains 2 bookmarks which were cutout using the the two tags die for the big shot as well.  It's a cute little gift idea and would fit well at the end of a row on your bookshelf so you always know where to find a bookmark when you need one.

We used a bunch of new products on this project including:
- the papillon potpourri stampset and coordinating butterfly punch...I'm loving playing with these
- the new builder wheels from page 108 of the catalog, the travel journal and the lace one (both used on the belly band on the pocket).
- gumball green stitched satin ribbon is gathered on the edge of the top of the pocket (and we used coordinating other incolors in ink including:  gumball green, primrose petals and raspberry ripple)

And you can't quite tell too clearly in the picture, but it gives a nice touch in person, the background of the bookmarks (which were cut from very vanilla) was created using the very vintage builder wheel and some versamark ink.

Thanks so much!

Hi Susan, the 'sleeve' is made with the petite pockets XL's in the current Stampin Up catalog (I have also written you a response on Stampin Connection...feel free to let me know if you'd like any other info:)
