Getting Back on Track

Happy Monday!! Sorry for my absence the past couple of weeks (those of you with kids on spring break can probably relate!!) Anyway, school is back in session and I'm trying to get back into my normal routine. It takes me a little while to get back into the creative groove so, today I was going to start with a simple card...but I kept changing and fixing and changing again. I started off with a regular sized card...but the white space was too white...I ended up cutting it down to a 1-1/2" x 3" card:



Here's a view of the inside:



But that seemed a little too simple...so, I came up with the following pattern (click here to download). Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines as shown below:



Apply double stick tape to all of the tabs and fold in half as shown:


Fold the pocket piece up:



The little card fits right into the front pocket and a bag of jellybeans slip right into the pouch. I finished it off with a ribbon wrapped around the whole thing:




Stamps used: #1205 (Chick With Jellybean), #1206 (Jellybean) and #1210 (Happy Easter).

So cute, Jean! Great idea to turn it into a small treat instead of only a card (which is cute on its own, but even cuter with in the pouch with jellybeans)! Thanks for sharing!!
