Back to School

It's Anything Goes over at the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog hop and challenge this week, so in keeping with the time of year I have made a little folded pocket book to hold some vintage school type ephemera (instructions for making these can be found in Mr Tim Holtz's first ever book 'distressables', published way back in 2005).

Next I die cut a few mini tags, which are inked and stamped using only Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress Inks and Tim Holtz Mini Muse Stamps, and tucked the two larger ones into a front and back pocket. The tiny tag (the all important bus ticket to get to school) and a type charm are attached to the pocket book with a mini fastener.  The ruler and times table are Ideology stickers stuck to Grungeboard and then distressed and inked again with Vintage Photo DI. Tucked into the right hand pocket is a certificate of attendance from my Crowded Attic paperstash.
I have just realized that there are quite a lot of numbers on this, so I am also entering this months Artistic Stamper Challenge which is Numbers.
