Make sure the new opening you cut is positioned at the top of your project. This is now your gift pocket.
Cut printed ledger paper (American Crafts Crimson 6×6 pad) to 6″ x 5 1/8″ and attach the paper to the bottom section of the envelope.
Trim Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock to 2 1/2″ x 6″. Punch one long edge with a lace border punch. Trim the punched strip to 2″ x 5 1/8″ and place it at the top of the envelope, overlapping the ledger paper.
Trim script paper, from the Crimson pad, to 1 1/2″ x 4 7/8″ and attach it to the punched strip.

Trim the ledger paper to 2″ x 5 1/8″ and slip the paper into the pocket opening.
Trim text paper to 6 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ and attach it to the back of the envelope. (The text paper is from my stash.)
Use red ink to stamp a sentiment in the lower right corner of the pocket.
Cover a 5″ shipping tag with paper from the Crimson pad.
Lightly mist red seam binding with water and scrunch it. Allow the seam binding to dry.
Trim a vintage image into a tag shape and attach it to the shipping tag as shown. Fussy cut a ticket image and attach to the right side of the pocket. (Image and ticket from my stash.)
Glue a tiny, red clothes pin to a chalkboard covered wood heart. Glue the heart to the tag. Use a white gel pen to write on the chalkboard heart.
Place a gift into your pocket, and give it to your favorite Valentine!
