Piercing Techniques: Faux Stitching

Use the grid template from the Essential Piercing Pack to pierce rows of holes. Then, connect the holes with a marker or gel pen to imitate stitching.

The pocket tag is Stampin' Up! cotton ribbon stamped with a sentiment.

I slid a stamped sentiment into the pocket, but tickets or money would be just as welcome.

-mark a 3 in. X 3 in. piece of card stock as shown
-cut on the lines
-use Essentials piercing pack grid to pierce edges
-use Festive piercing pack to pierce the pocket design
-connect the holes with a fine tip marker to imitate stitching
-apply ink to the card stock with a sponge dauber to imitate denim
