  1. Cut burgundy suede cardstock 5-1/2"x12". Score 4" up from bottom edge and fold, using ruler and stylus, to create a pocket. If left and right edges are not quite even, trim them now, up to 1/2" total. Punch top four corners of folded pocket with corner rounder.
  2. Using included pattern, trace a grape leaf on the back of the pocket flap and cut out with scissors. Print the bride's and groom's names and wedding date on vellum, so that it will fit the leaf shape. Attach the vellum to the inside of the pocket with adhesive dot runner. Attach a panel of lime green cardstock behind the vellum for a subtle green hue. Cut a thin strip of burgundy suede cardstock to fit behind top of pocket. Round corners and attach so the back side of the paper is visible behind the suede pocket. Using large hole punch, punch a notch on the left and right sides, using photo as guide for securing the ribbon.
  3. Print vellum panels with wedding information, no wider than 41/4". Mount on burgundy suede paper and Black Magic cardstock; round top right corner of vellum, as shown.
  4. To create bead grape cluster, string a green seed bead on a headpin, followed by a round green bead. Make 6 to 8. Create a wrapped loop at the end of each. Curl one end of 20-gauge wire and string on grapes and leaf charm. Create a wrapped loop.
  5. Wrap narrow purple ribbons around the wedding program pocket and tie in a knot to the right of the leaf cut-out. Slip the bead cluster onto a jump ring and attach over the knot. Tie the ribbon, catching the jump ring, to prevent it from sliding. Attach the "Follow your heart" charm to a second jump ring and attach it to the first jump ring.
  6. Punch a hole through all 3 layers of the program and insert a silver heart brad.
