Top Dog Dies Pocket Letter Tutorial

Hello everyone!!  It’s Top Dog Dies Tutorial Day!!  I’m here today showcasing Top Dog Dies Flip Flop Die Set.

TDD Flip Flop


I love this die set.  Its super cute and it represents the summer for me.  I love wearing flip flops.  They slip on and off.  No hassle at all.

The one thing I don’t like about flip flops are, they are super slippery when they are wet!!  When I was 7 months pregnant with daughter, I slipped and fell in a store because the floor was wet and the slippers had no grip.

Crazy right!!  The baby and I were fine but that was super scary!!

Ok, I digress.  On to my project.  I created this pocket letter last week for the collaboration but I wanted to give you a tutorial on how I created it.

Take a look at my pocket letter:

Flip Flops (TDD)

Those flip flops are so cute.  I watercolored them! I need a pair of those.

Here is how I created it:

1. I took a piece of scrap paper and divided my paper evenly.  I added the dimension to my paper for future use.


2. After I divided my paper, I put the scrap paper inside the We R Memory Keepers page projector. So that I could cut the plastic where it need to be open, only on one side.  Without the paper you will cut through the plastic.


3. The fuse comes with two tips: the fuse tip and the cutting tip.  This tip cuts the plastic open.


4. Here you can see that I cut the top and the bottom of my pocket.  I had to laugh.  Why didn’t I think of that.  I had a solution.


5. I took the paper out of the page protector, taped it to my glass mate. If you do not remove the paper, the plastic can’t fuse together.

I then placed my page protector on top of the paper lining up the cut line with the lines on my paper.  I fused the plastic back, one quarter above the cut line on both sides.


6.Once I finished prepping the page protector, I added my inserts in the pockets. I added sequin to this pocket and fused it closed.


7.  I used an old piece of watercolor paper and die cut my flip flops from that.  I attached it Simple Stories Summer Vibes pattern paper.  I added a Tim Holtz word band.


8. Here are some close up of the different pockets.





I just can’t get enough of this pocket page!  The flip flop die and the pattern paper just works so well.  I love it when things come together!!

I will surely make more of these very soon.

I’m entering my project into the Fairytale Challenge.

Its all about flip flops!! Perfect!
