I just love February....pretty sure I have already mentioned, a time or two, that it's my most favorite time of year to create for :). Today, the Reverse Confetti team has put together a fun blog hop...with a chance to win included as well! I created a Valentine pocket using my favorite Reverse Confetti supplies...lots of fun to put together.
I started by using the All Heart Cover Panel to create the front of my bag. I then cut a layer of vellum and adhered my cover panel to that, and then created a backside for my pocket using paper from the True Love 6x6 Paper Pad.
Before stitching my pocket layers together, I added a bit of pink tulle trim across the backside of the top portion of my pocket. Then came the embellishing. I created a circular pocket filled with flowers by using the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts. I die cut the bottom layer from Piggy Bank cardstock and then cut a half circle using the same die from white cardstock, stitching it around the edges to create a pocket.
My sentiment across the front of my circular pocket is from the Crazy About You stamp set and is stamped in Piggy Bank ink. I used flowers and leaves from the Blooms N' Buds stamp set along with hearts from the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts to create the fillings for my pocket.
I love how it plumps up when filled :).
It is wide enough to hold some chocolates, jewelry, gift card, notecard, etc. Mine of course contains chocolate...Dove milk chocolates to be precise.
Lastly, I attached some trim across the top to create a handle, using my hot glue gun to secure it in place.
