Video Cards

For today's project, there are no actual videos involved...it just looks like a VHS tape!! This idea came almost by accident...I was just trying to think of a way to present the gift/card inside (wouldn't it be cute to put a special message on the side of the "tape"?):



To get a pattern to make this VHS box, click here. **(Just a little extra note: This pattern came out very close to the edge of the paper...when you're printing this pattern out, make sure you select "No Scaling" or your printer may automatically shrink the pattern to fit the page.)** I also used a 1" hole punch to make that half circle in the box. For the card, I used a 6" x 7-3/4" piece of cardstock (scored at 3-1/2" and 4-1/4"). Decorate the outside of the card with your sentiment (this one is for Boy's Day):





For the inside, I used three 2" x 3" cellophane bags (I got mine at Ben Franklin)...and filled them with goodies. I attached each bag with a couple of glue dots on the back.



Here's one for Mother's Day:





Fill your bags up with whatever tiny treasures you want:



That's it for now...Have a great week everyone!!!
