Here's a snap shot view of this project and the process path to accomplish this item.
Start with loading your project into your machine of choice. and cut your file out.
You can see by the photo the scraps left over how you project should be a full size of paper. For myself I didn't really have a preference of width an length description. I the old fashion girl that use a little pinch of this and a little pinch of that. feel free to experiment for your needs.
Now there is some folding involved. You can fold over the right edge of the fold to the front of to the page or glue the fold under the front page. Each way brings a wonderful look. For my purpose today I will used a fold under method making the overboard creations pocket tag packaging. My embellishments are going to bring the pop I am looking for.
Now reinforcing the tag are with another layer of paper. Make sure the wrong side of the paper is the glued portion to the tag itself. So the right side will show in your final project
Now these are just a Picture for your enjoyment.
Embellishments are optional The first Pocket tag I used a Flower punch for my reinforced tag and filled the first pocket with a dozen put together flowers and my second pocket tag with a bag of nuts. Just a perfect size for a snack pack amount. Using my imagination and embossing folders and cut out windows for the Valentine seasons to be able to gift my creations for Valentines days card gifts. But, the options are endless. I going to be creative and switch out my windows as well as my overly with colors and designs to fit my projects. Hope that you enjoyed this walk through for my Overboard Creations packaging pocket tags. Follow us on our blog for other creations to be displayed.

My First Project
Magnificent I have produced a lot of thing this week. For starters this week a collective few Valentine day cards I made and showed off to my few individuals that purchase from myself placed their orders. Their orders got completed for the upcoming season holiday and a few extra so I have some on hand for sale. Made sure I made photos to show later and closer to Valentine’s Day. Since these photos will be going to homes I won’t let the cat out of the bag till the day has past so they can enjoy the excitement first.
Now the next thing I worked on a project of packaging my beautiful creations. I also added a GSD file freebie of these Pocket tags that I transformed into a gorgeous packaging idea for Overboard creations to show them off. These freebies are a GSD and SVG file only. I work with a older cc300 robo craft that works perfectly so if you can use GSD/SVG files here is a wonderful downloadable freebie plus a peek see of what I made with the file click here. Now the item I selected for the image to use for picture purpose only. I have yet to make the items (paper crafts) that I really want to show off. But, making the juices flow by getting my first packaging concept out of the way. I guess that I should tell you the first reason for making this packaging file. Was, I bought the Robocraft for making boxes for nail tips that I personal digitally paint. Well goodness I didn’t believe how much fun it was to create paper crafts and so my subject and desires have now switched to paper crafting or which I calling procraftinating.
Now no more procrastinating excuses my purpose in life now I am a procraftinator. But, to organize my life better I started the blog. I couldn’t leave house cleaning, cooking and myself down. I like being a wife and cleanliness but my obsession for crafting started getting in the way of daily life. I rather craft every minute of the day than be working, the reality is that we have to work to make the rent and grocery bills.
With these choices I have made to learn about glues, other crafter projects and isolating what really I want to craft and be my specific area of expertise is yet to be developed. So in hopes blogging my daily projects perhaps I might fall into my real gifts that God has giving me in paper crafting. So let’s talk about the blogging set up more.
Incredible it is like a full time job just filling out forms and editing sites. Just to make one web page, the basic ingredients that a blog site needs for example: The policy agreement, our vision –mission statements and then just telling you a little bit about myself. Was exhaustible to exposé and make myself accountable for projects. Isn’t this why, we make these New Year’s resolutions to makes us accountable for one reason or another.
Now, that I have begun this road of being a blogging procraftinator. My to-do list seems quite extensive. Well I am going to start today’s to-do list with posting this article, uploading my Gsd file freebie, a tutorial of what I made with this Pocket tag and Adding a page to the blogging sites to swim from more than one page to another. Don’t forget widgets just love those widgets. I made my first widget for my Overboard Creations website.
Blogging to be continued with working on the new forms information of Google drive that I downloaded, and still have yet got the blogging form to work properly to post directly from my Microsoft word program. At this time it’s still a copy and paste into post form. Awesome I did get the links and Google drive to share and link the files for this post. Amazing the technology today.
