I can’t believe that we are more than half way through Ramadan already. The blessed month has truly flown by! As we approach Eid, I decided to share a tutorial on Eidi Pockets, as everyone one will be needing these ;).
So lets get started!
- Black Cardstock
- Gold embossing powder
- Versa Mark Embossing Ink
- Gold Pen/marker
- Paper Punch
- Altenew Eid Greetings, and Ramadan Greetings Stamps
We start with the black cardstock and cut out 4 pieces measuring, 4″ x 10″, 3.75″x2.25″, 3.75″x2.75″ and 3.75″x3.75″
Then we take some 0.5″ satin ribbon and cut out 2, 8″ pieces.
Now we score the 4″ x 10″ piece of black card, at 3″ and then 7″.
Then fold the card, at the score lines. Doing so will leave you with something similar to a folder. The flaps are both 3″ wide and 4″ tall, so take either one and punch it across.
Given that the entire width does not punch in one go, we slide the card to the side, and align it to the printed pattern and continue punching. Doing so ensure that the design prints in continuity.
The finished base, prior to gluing, looks something like the above.
Now for the stamping:
I used the Altenew Eid Greetings, and Ramadan Greetings stamps, and stamped them onto the 3.75″ x 3.75″ piece of black cardstock.
Now to add some highlights to the punched piece, I used a gold marker and colored the pattern partially.
I’ve used a ruler, to ensure that the line is straight.
Next, I repeated the same steps and added a gold outline to all the pieces.
TIP: When doing this please clean the ruler every time you lift it up. Doing so keeps the ink from spreading on the card.
Next we apply glue to the inside corners of the base flap, and fold it up.
Then sandwich the ribbon between the 3.75″x2.25″ piece of cardstock and the pocket.
For the upper flap, I punched a slot in the top layer, and passed the ribbon through it,
and then stuck it to the flap.
The ribbons can be tied into a bow to close the pocket. Next, I just adhered the embossed pieced to the front.
You can stop here, or take it further by adding some sequences.
Hope you all enjoyed the tutorial! If you try making these, do share your creation. All those who like to play, Moodboard Challenge 14 closes on Saturday 2nd July, and we won’t be hosting anymore challenges till further notice, so don’t miss out.
