I made this before I figured out what it could hold.  I am told it can hold a gift card.  But I tried chocolate – it holds 2 Ghiradelli chocolates!  Apparently I have been in a Garden Green mood this week!

SUPPLIES:

Tools:  Mat pack  page 207  #105826

Adhesive:  I used Sticky Strip, but would recommend Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue  page 206  #110755
Dimensionals

Directions:
1.
  Cut Daffodil Delight card stock 3-1/2″ x 11″ and place over Pocket portion of die.  Use scrap of Garden Green card stock 1″ x 2″ and place over circles on die. Run through Big Shot.
2.  Punch 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle in Garden Green card stock.
3.  Use Garden Green and Chocolate Chip markers to color stamp.  Remoisten by breathing on it with your mouth open.  Stamp on Whisper White card stock.  Hold your 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle punch upside down.  Center stamped image and punch.  Attach to Garden Green Scallop Circle using Dimensionals.
4.  Assemble Petite Pocket.  Run Tombow Glue along edges of tabs.  Put 2 Ghiradelli chocolates on the back part of the Pocket.  Fold the front over and insert the tabs under the front.  Hold for several seconds until the glue sets.  Remove the top chocolate.  Figure out where you want the Garden Green circles you die cut.  Using the mat pack and Piercing Tool, poke holes for the brads.  Insert brads.  Flatten out brad stems making sure that you leave room for the ribbon to go between the brad and the Garden Green circles.
5.  Insert chocolate back into Pocket.  Cut ribbon 8-10″ long.  Center it and tie a knot around brad on the Pocket flap.  To close Pocket, wrap both sides of ribbon around brad on Pocket Front and then tie in a bow.
6.  Admire your cute little gift Pocket before you give it to the Birthday girl or boy!

Since I am not really good at technical issues, I don’t know how to help you. If you have any ideas how I can correct the problem, please let me know by emailing me: nendy@nendyscreativecorner.com .
