Here’s my take on creating a little card pouch filled with mini cards, just in time for the Brown Bag sale and Valentine’s Day!  Make this to use yourself, or share with a friend.  I like to spread out the love beyond Valentine’s Day… we have Valentine’s week around my house.  Each day when the kids and hubby come home from school and work, they find a little card and sweet treat waiting for them.  However you celebrate, these little cards will surely help sweeten things up a bit!
Supplies:
Assorted Valentine’s Day patterned paper and embellishments
Paper cutter
Scoring tool
Adhesive, including sticky, strong red tape
RickRack or other ribbon
Corner rounder (optional)
Scissors
Steps:
Cut an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Brown Bag cardstock to 4 1/4 x 7
On the 4 1/4 wide edge, score at 1/2″ and 3 3/4″
On the 7 wide edge, score at 3 1/4″ and 3 3/4″

Snip in to the intersecting line just a bit on the center folds to create two small tabs on the sides of your pouch
Fold on all of the scored lines

Using super strong sticky tape, apply strips of adhesive on the edge flaps.  You’ll put long strips on the bottom outer flaps and short strips on the top edges of the inner flaps.

Cut about 8” of your ribbon or rick-rack and attach it to the short strips of adhesive you added to the top, inner flaps.
Reveal the adhesive from the long strips and stick together the side flaps.  They are the same size, so they should align nicely.
When you’ve done that for both sides, you will have your little card pouch.
All that’s left is to jazz it up a bit with cardstock, patterned paper and other embellishments you want to use. 
For the cards inside, I cut three pieces of brown bag cardstock; each measure 3 x 6.  Score each in half and then decorate the cards to match your card pouch.
