As a child scratch n sniff stickers,pencils etc. was probably one of my favorite things. So when I came across this technique I couldn't wait to give it a try. And I must say I LOVED IT! It's my favorite yet.
Supplies: kool-aid of your choice must be sugar-free,heat gun,clear embossing powder, whisper white CS, tart n tangy stamp set and small containers to mix in.
1. Mix 1 part sugar-free rink mix to 1-1/2 parts clear stampin' emboss powder.
2. Stamp your bol image on card stock with a color that coordinates with your embossing powder mix.
3. Using a stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp you image an heat emboss.
-If you only want to emboss a portion of your image, use a versamark to ink the desired section of your stamp for step 2.
-You can use Craft ink for step 2 and skip step 3.
-You drink mix should be sugar-free b/c heated sugar crisps and browns.

On this project I tried to use most of my retired papers. Like the Taking with Teal CS; Sweet Pea DSP .I actually decided to create these b/c I had my SS class record the story of Easter and wanted to give all the parents a copy and yes of course I had to dress the covers up pretty for them. =) As you can see Im sharing it with you guys too-I was so proud of them; it turned out great.Start out with a 7-7/8 X 11 piece of CS of the color of your choice.
Score 3'' at each end of your CS.Then turn n cut at 3''.Take the 3'' piece you just cut off and adhere to the bottom score line; like shown in the picture here. Only attaching your adhesive,glue dot,sticky strip (what ever you like to use best) Appling it only to each corner or side. I have my image facing up to give example flip over n attach.now that you have this attached fold your two flaps inward. Again apply your favorite adhesive only on the outer part, and fold bottom piece upper-ward.
Your last step will be to take your 1-1/4 punch center it to the middle of pocket only going half way down; n punch hole.
I attached a small piece of Velcro right under neath the punched out part to give a secure hold. It don't have to have it though it stays down pretty good with out it.
