Gingerbread Christmas Tags in a Pocket Folio

Pocket folios have been around for a while, but this is the first time I have actually made one.  I decided to make some gingerbread tags to go in the folio.
To make the Pocket Folio I used the tutorial by Kay Kalthoff here

The tags were die cut using the Two Tag die and Crumb Cake card stock.  I used the scallop border punch to punch a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  This strip was attached to the bottom of a strip of Be of Good Cheer designer paper.  This unit was then adhered to the tag.  Then  Champagne glass glitter was applied at the junction of the scalloped strip and the designer paper.
The gingerbread men were die cut using Chocolate chip paper and the Holiday Collection framelits.  To make the markings on the gingerbread men I used the Silver Stampin' Dazzle marker.
Two gingerbread men were attached to each tag.
The sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the tag using Early Espresso ink and the stamp from "Greetings of the Season"
Early Espresso baker's twine was attached at the top of the tag.

The Pocket Folio was made using Early Espresso cardstock, Be of Good Cheer designer paper, and a ziplock bag.
Start with a sheet of paper 9 1/2 by 6 3/4"  Score at 6 1/2.  For the top flap, measure in 2 3/4" from each edge and trim from the mark to the score line.  See the template in the tutorial.
Trace the shape of the top flap on some designer paper, and cut 1/8" inside the traced line.
Then attach the Ziplock bac to the Folio using sticky strip. Inserted a a 6 by 6"  piece of Whisper White cardstock inside the pocket.  This will hide the sticky strip and help to show off the tags.
I used a piece of velcro to keep the flap closed.
To make the tulle rosette, cut a 5" piece of scalloped tulle ribbon and with a needle and thread sew down the middle of the ribbon.  Pull the string tight, and it forms a rosette.  Tie the thread off and attach to the flap with a hot glue gun.
