Thanks for dropping in.
Very busy day today at HOCHANDA.
So good to see Tina Cox on our screens again.
What a talent!
here’s is a step by step of the beautiful little parchment scissor pouch, which another very clever and generous lady,
Emma Burns, kindly made for Tina....
It looks complicated, but actually, when you break it down,
it’s not too bad....
The key to the whole thing is the
A5 blue parchment, score the smaller triangle as seen here:
Add the other triangles and a few flowers.
All from the same plate.
This is what you now have, looking from the front.
Time to use the A5 Calligraphy plate,
which is featuring on the One Day Special tonight.
And a corner from the lace Corners border.
I LOVE the lace plates which our Jim designed.
So once more from the front, to really see the sequence...
Add a little flourish from one of the lovely poetry plates.
Now out with the grid and tools.
A little whitework,
a little gridwork...
a little picot edging along the front flap...
Random embossing and perforating.
Look up close.
Now for gradual assembly.
See where Emma has placed the extra-tuff tape?
Add the initial or name on the front flap which it is still flat.
Score and fold in.
This is going to be the little pouch at the front.
And this is going to be the little flap at the front.
the only thing you might not have done before is shallow piercing, For the piercing at top of Triangle 2 and 3..... Shallow pierce with two needle while flat. Then once the blank triangles are folded in, you pierce through both pieces of parchment from the front, then you cut them out separately.
Add the ribbon,
Tie a bow
What a fantastic gift.
I know Tina will treasure hers as much as I treasure mine.
Thank you Emma.
Love & hugs,
