My Creations Paper Pouch by CTMH for Memorial Packet

We recently had a celebration of life for my husband’s Great Aunt and Great Uncle.  I made some packets to hold a memorial pamphlet and keepsake using the CTMH My Creations Paper Pouch (large size).

I added a pressed flower sticker to each and stamped their first initials.  Jeanne and Winston were married 73 years and were very happy together.  They passed within two months of each other.  I made the memorial pamphlet using a greeting card program to make a quarter fold card and added an old photo and a newer one inside with some quotes and clip art.

The large paper pouch is just the right size for the pamphlet.  The paper stamped very nicely.  The butterfly stamp has a sentiment included that says “Love as delicate as a butterfly’s wings as strong as the circle of life.”  It was so appropriate.  I used the Lagoon stamp pad for the aqua color.  My sister-in-law purchased the little bag of pewter mementos online.

We had a nice celebration of their lives.  They both were in there 90’s and had full lives.  I was happy to help with making these mementos for the family who gathered. I hope that you, my readers, don’t have a loss in your family, but if you do I hope this idea is of use to you.
