Do you have a minute . . .

This post features ideas using

leftover bits and pieces from your

Graphic 45 Card Kit

  1.  Begin with a piece of cardstock cut 5" W x 8-1/4" T. Trim the two top corners to resemble a tag.
  2. Fold up the bottom of the tag about 3" to create a pocket. 
  3. Locate two pieces of leftover Time To Flourish from your kit. They should be about 3" T x 8" W. I used the two shown in the photo below and cut to 3" T x 5" W. Cover the bottom pocket with one piece and the top of the tag with another piece. 
  4. Keeping the pocket folded up, staple the pocket closed at the top right and left corner of the pocket.

        5.  Next go through your leftovers and find any cut-aparts that have months and notation lines. I used these:

        6.  Go through the Time To Flourish scraps again and choose some of your favorite images.

        7.  Using contrasting leftovers and your favorite border punch, add a border  at the top of the pocket and at the top of the  tag.  Use a piece of ribbon from the kit to adhere to the pocket border. Add two images to the lower right pocket and a flower from your own stash and the pocket is complete!

        8.  Add the cut apart tags back into the pocket and your "stuffed pocket" is complete.

Use it to send to someone special,

as a page in your art book or junk journal,

or in your planner.

Are you a part of the Graphic 45 Card Club?

Do you follow Graphic 45's blog, Facebook page or Instagram account?

If so, you might have noticed my latest card designs.

Along with the cards shown on Graphic 45's posts,

I'm adding a feature to my blog using leftovers from the G45 Card Kit called

"Do you have a minute".

It features super quick projects/ideas you can create with leftovers from 

The Graphic 45 Card Club Kits.

Since February is just around the corner,

I'm using leftovers from the February page of

Time To Flourish.

Photo 1

The basic leftovers are shown above.

Dig around in those leftover cardstock papers

and locate a piece of cardstock in ivory.

Cut to 8-1/2" x 5-1/2".

Score on the 8.5" side at 4.25" and fold on the score line.

Match a piece of pink cardstock close to the February Time To Flourish pink colors.

Cut a piece of light pink cardstock

4-1/8" x 5-3/8".

Adhere the pink cardstock piece to the center front

of the ivory card.

Then add to the front, a strip of words at the bottom of the card

and

a strip of stamps at the top.

Using the February calendar piece, tie a ribbon around the calendar

and add a small flower to the center.

Pop-up the February calendar

and place it on the front of the card.

For the inside, we'll create a pocket that will hold a gift card.

In my leftovers I found a piece of Time To Flourish February

that was tall and narrow. Cut a strip

 5-1/2" T x (about) 2" W

Holding this piece 5-1/2" T, cut from the upper left corner

to the lower right corner, creating a sort of triangle.

Add this to the inside of the card gluing on the left and bottom only.

Then locate the "How Do I Love Thee" angel image

and add this to the bottom inside of the card,

gluing on two sides only.

Add a gift certificate to this pocket.

Ready to send to your kids or grandchildren

or tuck a note inside the pocket for a special relative.
