A Fiskateer Project


I made this fun gift card holder and tag for a top secret Fiskateer project. The cat's out of the bag now, so I can share it here. I enjoyed doing a little stitching on these little goodies. It was quite a challenge, since I had to make these while I was evacuated.

I used Mom's scrapbooking supplies. I'm so glad I had shared this paper and some primas with her, so I could steal them back to use. Also, happy she asked me to help her buy some ink to do a little distressing. Of course, the stitching part is easy at her house. There are several machines to choose from.

The pocket measures 3" x 4 1/2", and the tag measures 2 1/2" x 4". This was made to hold a coffee house gift card. My favorite part is the rickrack that I tucked in between the layers that is peeking out. The top of the front part of the pocket is punched out with the top of a tag punch.

WOW these are great! I love the bead in the center of the flower. The vintage lace is a wonderful touch!

Cuteness! So, you're going to have to explain this whole fiskateers thing... Are you a designer for them? What do they have you do? Is it like a muskateer? Do you run around with sharp fiskers objects and whip then out when inspired or to fight crime???? Inquiring minds want to know!
