The first gift is a gift card pouch. I love these little pouches because you can put a card in them, movie tickets, gift cards, and such. They are easy to make and oh so cute!
|Classic Thank You Pouch|
- 2 cordinating scrapbook papers
- 1/2 yard ribbon
- paper cuter
- mini sheet protectors
Trim the edge off of the sheet protector. You want to cut off the holes, but do not cut through the seam that keeps the sheet protector sealed together. (See picture) Then cut the length of the sheet protector to be 5 3/4 inches long. This squares the protector.
|Trim holes and then trim length|
Cut both pieces of scrapbook paper to these dimensions. 5 3/4 inches wide by 9 inches long. Glue both pieces of scrapbook paper together, pretty sides out. This allows the pattern to show through on the front and back.
Slide the paper down into protector. It will hang out of the pouch, with this excess you are going to fold down onto the sheet protector to create a flap. You can choose how long or short you would like the flap. My flap is about 2 1/2 inches wide.
Attach Velcro. Place one piece of velcro on the sheet protector and the other on the under side of the flap you've just made. This keeps it closed.
Embelish as you please. This is where ribbon and tags come in handy. If you would like to make a Classic looking Thank You Pouch, you'll want to download my tags by clicking on the icon below. I also included a congratualtions tag because these are great for weddings and retirement parties too.
