Step 2 Make a template to cut sides of each pocket front and back. Mine is 1" from each side and 1" down. Trace the template on each side of the designer paper for all pockets. Fold down front tab and adhere.

Step 3 Use Sticky Strip close to edges of inside on top and bottom, remove tape and seal closed to make pocket.

Step 4 Make large flower on front. Use Scallop #2 Die and cut 4 large scallops from Brocade Blue cardstock and 3 small scallops from Kraft cardstock.

Step 5 Spritz all pieces with water, crumble in hand, then layer all together on top of each other. I added another Very Vanilla flower punched from Boho Blossoms punch in the very center and added a Chocolate Chip Jumbo Brad to center. Start scrunching the wet cardstock towards to center brad, one layer at a time. Set aside and let dry. Sponge edges with Brocade Blue Classic Ink.
