I hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend. Today is the last day of collaborating with Laurel (for this round anyway, we’ve already decided we want to do it again). We decided that we wanted to play with patterned paper today. This is right up my alley, I love patterned paper (you may have noticed if you’ve visited my blog for any length of time, like more than once).
I decided to go with the pocket gift card holder (see this blog post for the first one). I thought I’d show the steps to make the pocket card. I will do another step by step instruction to make the other card holder. (This is my first attempt at trying this, so be patient with me, I am still learning Photoshop and not good with it).
Get a square piece of paper. I used double-sided patterned paper from Stampin’ Up! You can always makes your own double-sided paper (my paper is 7 inches by 7 inches but you can vary the size depending on what you want to put in it)
Fold two corner to touch and score the fold
Fold a corner across
Fold the other corner across
Fold one layer from the top down to create a pocket
Please note that if you want to tie ribbon around it, I recommend using drop of glue or small piece of tap because it slides due to the angle of the pocket.
I used Lawn Fawn’s Making Frosty Friends, Ornate Ornaments, and Bow and Holly to decorate.
Be sure to go see what Laurel came up with. Remember to comment for a chance to win your choice of Lawn Fawn stamp set.
Hugs and blessings
