Middy Biddy Bag Pocket Card

Hello friends of Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's your crafty friend, Karen Letchworth, here today sharing a sweet Pocket Card using a Kraft Middy Biddy Bag With Vertical Stripes and LOTS of other FABULOUS ribbons, trims, laces, flowers and more from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I would LOVE to have you pick up some of these wonderful Middy Biddy Bags and give it a try for yourself.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has everything you will need!

My project for today was created using LOTS of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon including the base, which is a Kraft Middy Biddy Bag With Vertical Stripes.  And please...DON'T let the term "middy biddy" make you think that they're tiny.  They're NOT!  They are good sized at 5" wide x 7.5" tall.  I took the Kraft Middy Biddy Bag With Vertical Stripes and folded the bottom of the bag half-way back up, and then machine stitched it down; leaving an opening/pocket at the top so that you can tuck in photos, a gift card, a special note, or anything else you can think of.  This "pocket" will be in addition to the "pocket" or "hole" that automatically comes with the opening of the bag itself.  I hope that makes sense.  These little "Pocket Cards" make such a cute little gift because they're more than a card, and much fancier, but still just a simple little treat you can tuck in an envelope and send through the mail with ease.  And everyone LOVES them!

To create this "Pocket Card", once the Kraft Middy Biddy Bags With Vertical Stripes was machine stitched and secured, I decorated it by adding a half of a vintage cream doily, some little tickets/scrap pieces, a digital image, a miniature clothespin with glitter that holds a tiny tag, some vintage style scotch tape, a little button, and LOTS of great Really Reasonable ribbons and trims which include their sweet Arianna Naural Crochet Lace, three leaves from the Moss Green Leaf RibbonPink Aster Seam Binding, adorable Light Pink Gingham Ribbon, Natural Wide Burlap With Pink/White Wired Edge, some darling little Baby Pink Open Roses, rich gorgeous Deep Ivory Rosebuds, and a wonderful White Frosted Spiral Stamen.  They all mix together SO beautifully.

Thanks for stopping by to take a quick peek at my Really Reasonable Ribbon project for today.  You can find LOTS more great ribbon inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and you can even play along in our current challenge and share what you've created.  And of course, Really Reasonable Ribbon is a great place to shop for ribbons, laces, trims, decorative bags, flowers, and SO much more.

We really do look forward to seeing what you will create using ribbon, and hope that you will stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store to take a look at ALL the fabulous things they carry.  It really makes crafting easy and fun, and you will LOVE their reasonable prices, affordable shipping, excellent customer service, and GORGEOUS products.  Why not treat yourself today?
