Silverware Pockets

So yesterday was a productive day in crafting. I did some long overdue scrap organizing and then set in to work on a project I had in mind for awhile. I saw these adorable fabric "silverware pockets" at Hobby Lobby and thought Hmm maybe I can make something like that. The following are my versions. They are all made with a pocket card fold.

He is by far my favorite. It's the turkey from the Create a Critter Cartridge. The DS paper is SU Autumn Vine and I also used More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa , and Really Rust. Isn't he stinkin' cute.
 I like this one a lot too. It was by far the easiest. I just cut three 2" ovals in DS paper with the cricut and added the stamped greeting.
This one I am not so fond of. I created the sunflowers with the SU Something Sweet stamp set and added glitter to the centers. I used spray adhesive to adhere the glitter and for some reason it just didn't stick well. Maybe it was too wet? All I know is I wouldn't want something on my place setting that sheds glitter everywhere.
This one I used a stamp from SU Thoroughly Thankful. I love the way it looks when watercolored. This was my first time using watercolor pencils with a blender pen and I really like the way the colors turned out.
