Spellbinders. May Blog Hop + giveaway! Decorative pockets.

Hello my dear readers!

Today I’d like to invite you to join our celebration of the new release from Spellbinders which includes two collections: Romancing the Swirl  ecca Feeken and Perfect Match by Debi Adams:

I played with dies from Becca’s collection. They are so gourgeous!!! Every of them is so unique and beautiful!

Today I’d like to show the fun way to use almost all dies from this release. I used dies to decorate simple pockets for cards or letters. They can be also used for wedding invitations.

Here is how you can do it yourself:

Die cut a large label and the florished accent using S5-367 Florished Square out of white cardstock and the interior frame outline out of colored cardstock.

Adhere all the details with liquid glue and bend the label using scoring board.

Create simple pocket out of cardstock, cover one side of the label with glue and adhere it to the back sibe of the pocket.

I decorated one more pocket using S5-365 Sweetheart Swirl and the small decorative element from S4-927 Trefoll Crest.

You can also create a pocket out of patterned paper and add the elegance to it with such beautiful top just like I did here:

Here I used S5-368 Graceful Dolly and S5-369 Ringled Round sets.

Hope my ideas will inspire you to find new ways to use there beautiful dies.
