Valentine's Gift Card Holder

I am giving these to my girls for Valentine's Day. They were super easy to make. The inside of this holder is actually a lunch bag that I trimmed down to fit inside of the card. Money or gift cards fit very nicely inside...

The pocket is made by cutting a standard sized lunch bag, using the top part of the bag and adhering it to the walls of the card stock. Then the bottom portion of the lunch bag can be used for another project. Super cute, huh? Scroll down for more details.

Supplies-Cardstock:Pink Pirouette, Stampers Select White(PTI). Paper:Bittersweet Raspberry Cream. Stamps:Heart Prints(PTI). Ink:Blush(CTMH). Pure Poppy(PTI). Other:ScorPal. Scallop punch(SU!).Lunch bag(Hallmark).

Here's how to make the pocket...

Take a standard lunch bag. I purchased a lot of these from WalMart in real yummy colors.

I trim off the tiny scalloped edge that is on the bag and then I cut the top portion of the lunch bag to 3 or 3.25 inches, just depends on if you want the bags edge to peek out a bit.

Once trimmed, you will have this piece, which you will adhere to your cardstock base.

For more complete details, see my previous post.

Thanks for visting me today!
