Shabby Chic pockets

 I am sharing my shabby chic pockets today.  I made these for a swap and filled them with handmade tags and a few goodies. :-) These were a delight to create and my only wish was to have made an extra one to keep.  I sure hope the ladies that received them are enjoying!
***Warning this is photo heavy!!***
 I made the tags and pockets  with manilla file folders.  I trimmed the folders to 5 x 6.  I stitched the edges to make it a nice sturdy pocket.  They have vintage sheet panels on the front and back paired with papers from My Mind's Eye.  Each one has been distressed with ink for a slight aged effect.  All three pockets are slightly different so be sure to scroll down and see.  At the end, I have shown each tag I made you see in the pockets.
 I had photo frames that I distressed lightly to highlight a piece of MME paper on this one.  I also added a vintage ticket stub which is peeking out on the far left.  The roses and leaves are from Prima.  I added the baby blue seam binding and a gold twine bow to each pocket.

                                             These are the three tags I made to put inside.

                                                   Thank you so very much for stopping by!
