Graphic 45 Mother Goose tag and holder

Hello All! more day until Friday.  Yay!  It is not that I do not like my job because I do.  I just really enjoy weekends.  :)

I was reorganizing my Graphic 45 paper pads last weekend and came across the Mother Goose paper collection.  Next thing I know, I have finished a tag and am halfway through making a tag holder.  Funny how you can get so easily distracted from cleaning and organizing!

The tag holder was made by cutting a sheet of 12 x 12 paper in half, folding into three sections and then cutting the two outer section rectangles at an angle.  Both ends could fold in to form the open pocket:
I went one step further and cut/folded another sheet of paper identical.  Then, I trimmed the triangle remnants and adhered them to the pocket flaps.   A strip of dotted Mother Goose paper was punched along each edge with a Martha Stewart edge punch and adhered to the pocket front.  A layer of green paper and postage stamps were added.  The cute Mother Goose stamp and fussy cut flowers were layered on top:
The tag was sweet and simple.  More layering and I used one of the large fussy cut blue flowers on top of the tag.  The back of the tag will hold a gift card.
Here is another view of the assembly:
A template page is coming soon and I will have a template for the pocket and tag.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a terrific Thursday!
