Vintage Rx Pocket Page – Tags and Hearts

by | July 21st, 2016 | 1

Hello, Crafty Peeps! This week we are sharing fun ways to use pocket page protectors. My neurologist loves all things vintage. Each year, I give her one of my handcrafted gifts.  This Vintage Rx pocket page is my second gift to her this year.  The contents reflect our “growing memories!”

Vintage RX Pocket Letter

Use your Clearsnap Rollagraph to create the script text page. Use the Alabaster pad from ColorBox® Paintbox® Mercantile to antique your paper.


Cut your selected designer papers and your script page to fit your pockets.

Distress the edges of your insert sheets. Distressing the edges of designer papers adds both depth and interest to a project. In this instance, I used Colorbox® Color Pop Archival Dye Ink “Mystery by Susan K. Weckesser and “Candied Yam” from the ColorBox®Paintbox Chalk – Mercantile.

 Tip #1  I wanted  Dr. G. to have easy access to the pocket content so I cut thumb holes in each pocket.  I make a lot of gift card holders and my circle punch is marked for three sizes.

Tip #2  When I work with inks and sprays, I use a regular manilla tag as a blotter/blender mat.  They are very useful for creating fun and interesting embellishments.  In this project, I used the blotter mat to die cut letters.Vintage Rx Word Die Composite_CMHarris

The best part of pocket swaps and pocket pages is finding or creating content for your pockets.  The huge Rx on my project is a dead giveaway!  Shots, anyone?

Use materials that are familiar or have some significance to the recipient.  I worked in pediatrics so this tag represents nursing notes.  My neurologist uses safety pins during checkups and the entire tag is wrapped in a piece of a poly-lined drape.

Create or include practical content that the recipient can use for creative projects.  This tag would be perfect attached to a gift!

Pocket swaps an pocket pages are an exciting and innovative way to communicate with family and friends.  Give it a try!   Hugz!
