Whilst blog surfing this weekend, I found this cutest idea on the AMuse blog from Linda. She always has quick and clever ideas that keep me inspired! So I have adapted this with supplies from Scraptasia. This is perfect for giving a little giftie to a friend, teacher, special somebody for Vday. And I make no exaggeration when I say that I made this in minutes, thanks to the most gorgeous paisley heart from the Kaleidoscope 3 collection. I "heart" that paisley heart!
The finished size is 5 x 3 1/2 (a/k/a Bar 4) so it fits into a Bar4 envelope. Double sided cardstock with a light colored back is ideal. Cut the paper to 3 1/2 x 10. Score @ 5 and then 1 1/2 to create the little fold over. Apply adhesive to two sides and under the flap and stick 'em together to form the pocket.
The finishing touch is the perfectly coordinated ribbon from the K3 collection. I inserted the gift card as my guide, and punched a 1/8 hole on each side for the ribbon. Keeps the gift card snug in place.
O, and this is very exciting news....AMuse is going to have a booth at CHA this year! I will definitely be stopping to say "hi" and let these gals know that they're inspirations reach all the way out to the East Coast. To beat the rush, I will submit Scraptasia's order for the new spring stamps before I leave. They are way cute!
Something else very exciting, Miss Morgan stopped in today to pick up supplies for her next class @ Scraptasia in March!
