I know I love pockets, and it stresses me out when I don’t have pockets! (one of my new pairs of jeans don’t have front pockets! WHAT??) Anyway, Danielle found a super cute little pocket box that someone created with dies. We don’t have those dies, so she asked me to create a cricut file for it. So, I did! You can find that file here.
This cute little pocket box/bag thing is adorable! (Even if I do say so myself!) I decided to fit a set of 4 little cards in it! These cards are 3×4 and the envelopes are just slightly larger.
I left the front of the pocket box blank, so it could be reused after the cards are gone (if wanted). The cards themselves are all the same, with the exception of the paper on the front. I used the 2nd largest circle die cut for the vellum, and the banner from the Spruced Up Cardmaking Workshop kit. (I am LOVING all of the uses I have found for these stamps and dies!) I made sure to put a panel of white on the inside of the cards (not photographed), so that a special pen wouldn’t be needed for the notes. The “Way to Go” comes from the Say it in Style stamp set, and I slightly curved the sentiment to fit on the wavy banner.
These cards were SUPER fast to put together! The box is not quite perfect, but it’s close enough! 😉 If for some reason your machine doesn’t score well (like mine) The plain strip is scored in half, length wise. And the piece with the triangles cut out, if you just line up the points of the triangle, and score, you will be good! (You can score between the triangles, however, it will naturally fold at that point. Just make sure to do that before you start gluing things together!
I hope you like this fun project! I would love to see your little pocket box! Now, if you haven’t already been, hop over to Danielle’s blog and see her little pocket box!
