Valentine Gift Pocket

Hello and welcome to the CutCardStock Blog! It’s Gloria with you today. Christmas cards are finished and now it’s on to Valentine’s Day cards!

I created a Valentine gift pocket from a Basis Red A7 Envelope and some printed paper. It is always fun to give small gifts for Valentine’s Day, and this sweet pocket is perfect for a gift card, a candy bar, or some “love” coupons!
Seal the flap of the envelope, and place it face up in a portrait orientation. Trim the top off the envelope so that the envelope measures 7″ tall x 5 1/4″ wide.

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.

Place a circle die (1 3/4″) into the pocket, face up. Center the die and run the envelope through your die cut machine.

You now have a notch cut out of the envelope pocket.

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.

Tie a loopy bow from the red seam binding and glue it to the top of the tag. Attach the tag to the pocket with foam adhesive.

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!

Thanks for looking!
