Hi everyone,Michelle is back to share a little creativity using Couture Creations ‘Blooming Friendship’ paper collection. A card that is a gift in itself. A double pouch card. The front of the card … it has a pouch that has another card in it.The back of the card … that has a pouch with a tag tucked inside.

Let’s get started!

Cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4″ x 12″. Turn on its side and score at 1 3/4″, 6″, 10 1/4″. Cut patterned paper panels :2 pieces x 1 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ ,2 pieces x 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. Turn cardstock on its side and score and stand just like in the photo.

Adhere patterned paper to the two inside panels as pictured. Adhere the patterned paper to the two end panels – on the side showing underneath the white cardstock. Using a 1″ circle punch cut out a piece similar to a half moon [but not quite that big]. Does that make sense?

Now you can see the other side of the smaller fold that makes the pouch.

Cut four pieces of patterned paper 1″ x 1 3/4″ and score in half lengthwise to make a hinge. It makes the hinge less bulky if you use patterned paper for the hinge instead of cardstock. Adhere double sided tape – trim if required.

With a pair of scissors angle cut each end and adhere to the inside along the edge to form the pouch so that it closes neatly. I’ve made a tag to tuck inside one of the pouches and a card to tuck inside the pouch on the front of the card. Instead of making a tag you could purchase a gift card and tuck it inside the pouch.
