Unique Photo Jacket and Envelope

This is a Grrrr-eat gift to give someone and I got it from a Jackie C. who was so kind to give such a great memento of my special occasion. I keep it close by to remind me of the wonderful event I had and I wanted to share this with you all so you can also be inspired to make something wonderful like this. It is a unique photo wallet that came in it's own color co-ordinated organdy bag.
Here is the Photo Jacket: measures 6-1/6" x 4-3/8". The paper used is from Best Creations Kimono Collection/#K001 Flower Viewing and the contrast paper is #K004 Colorful Ball. Stickles were added to the umbrella tops randomly.
Open up the tab to reveal a jacket with a thumb pull (can be made using a circle punch)
There's enough room to hold a couple photos of the event:
Flip the Photo Jacket over to see that there is another pocket that holds a note card documenting the event. Optional: Use the Stamping Up label punch for the "pull"
On the reverse side of the note card is a business card from the restaurant:
I will do my best to provide the measurements to make this project: To make the base, cut (1) 4-1/4" x 11" card stock, score on the 11" side @4-1/2", 10-1/2" as shown. This is the Blue color card stock in the project.
Cut (2) 4" x 4-1/4" liners in a pattern paper. This is the Best Creations Kimono Collection/#K001 Flower Viewing in the project. Optional: use a corner rounder on the flaps.
Cut (1) 6"  6-3/4" pocket, score on the 6-3/4" side @2" and 6-1/4".  This is the pocket using Best Creations Kimono Collection/ #K004 Colorful Ball in the project. You will be wrapping this around the base. Note there is a 1/2" allowance for the sticky tape to adhere to the base as shown in the 5th photo.
Lastly, here is the note card cut (1) 3-1/2" x 5" to be inserted into the jacket (at the back). Optional to punch a pull tab.
Hope you all are now inspired to make some of these for some quick and eventful memories.
