There's a brand new V&A papercraft collection from Trimcraft and I just love the new embellishments in it! I think my favourite is the new Washi Tape Stickers which can be used to create blooms looking like pressed flowers.
I've used the collection to make this pocket and shaker tag card and you can see how to make it below.
You will need:
Dovecraft 6x6 ribbon edge card
Dovecraft A4 Luxury Heavyweight card (white)
V&A 6x6 paper pad
V&A wooden frames
V&A mini bunting
V&A printed tags
V&A fabric brads
V&A Washi Tape Stickers
V&A Stamp and Die set
V&A Printed Pegs
Simply Creative 6mm gold gems, 3mm and 6mm ivory pearls
Dot & Dab double sided tape
Dot & Dab foam tape
Dot & Dab white glue
Dot and Dab hot glue gun
How to make it:
1. Score and fold the ribbon edged card at 6cm from the ribbon edge. Fold back to the left.Cut a piece of white card measuring 16cm x 15cm, then score and fold at 1cm on the longer side. Add double sided tape to the 1cm folded strip.
2. Turn the ribbon edge card as shown then attach the other piece of card to the back of it on the left side.
3. Attach a 14.75cm x 10cm piece of floral paper to the top of the card front and double sided tape to the sides of the long edge of the ribbon part. Fold back and press down - this will form a pocket.
4. Add a piece of pink floral paper (14.75cm x 4cm ) to the flap and a piece of green patterned paper( 14.75cm x 4cm below the flap. Thread a length of ribbon through the eyelets in the card and secure at the ends with a dab of glue.
5. Add some foam tape along the underside of the flap below the ribbon and secure in place.
6. Cut a piece of acetate to fit the back of the wooden frame and glue in place. Trim lengths of foam tape to fit along the edges of the frame and acetate, making sure there are no gaps. Add sequins.
7. Press a tag shape facing downwards on top of the foam tape and secure. Add a twine bow and brad at the top of the tag.
8. Add a "with Love " sentiment sticker above the pocket and some bunting along the top of the pocket.
9. Using the washi petals and leaves, create a flower on the centre of the bunting. Add a gold gem in the centre and some tiny pearls along the bottom of the other bunting pieces.
10. Pop the tag into the pocket :)
Attach a peg to the tag.
