Demonstrator, Patty Bennett, is how to use the punch to create the easiest flagged end ever!  The second is my trick for creating the sweet little pocket.  Both ideas were used on the card from yesterday’s post below.  Original card details including layer measurements here.

    Both the pocket idea and the flagging of the ends are super ideas. I had to laugh – I was looking at the blue one you cropped off and thought it might look cute as a baby boy diaper with some addition of a marker or even men’s briefs! Sorry, if I upset anybody with my thinking – I was thinking it would be cute hanging from the clothesline with those cute little clothespins!

  9. Mary I think that the pocket is such a cute idea! I also like the idea for flagging the end of the papers. It looks much easier that the square. It is great that you can give us so much information in such a little amount of time.

  10. Great Tips Mary.

  11. After seeing your card yesterday I played around with my hexagon punch. I like the look of punching out the whole hexagon, folding down the flap (at the same place you were cropping it) and adding a small brad or candy dot for the look of a buttoned flap that I’ve seen on some jeans! Cute…especially when stamped with the stitched hexagon stamp and folding the blank sides together to show the flap with stitching. I hope that’s not too confusing. Thanks for your tips, Mary!
