Friends, thanks so much for joining me today. As our minds turn toward Christmas and giving, I look for any opportunity to make something quick and simple so that there's always a gift at hand. You never know when you might need to reciprocate or even give a trinket to someone whose spirits need lifting. Today I put together a very, very easy pocket that houses a gift card. Because the pocket and the gift card are separate, they provide lots of opportunity for embellishment. This project takes 1 piece of 12" x 12" design paper and 1 sheet of 8.5" x 11" cardstock, along with some scraps. With less than a 10 minute investment in time, you're going to a have personalized gift card pocket, ready to go. I know that sometimes I make, ahem...detailed projects. This one is not!! I would sure love it if you give it a try :-)
For my pocket that I'm displaying, I used the new Joy to the World Hymn released this month at Our Daily Bread Designs - I found it was the perfect compliment to the scads of christmas design paper I've collected over the years. The supplies for this project are so simple - be sure to play up the front of the pocket by adorning with a sweet flower or your favorite brad.
