Set hearts a flutter with these Valentine’s Day pockets made using the Your’s Truly collection, by Suzanna Lee.
The great thing about these sweet little pockets is that you can create 3 pockets from one 12×12 piece of patterned paper!
Each pocket is 4 inches wide so cut three strips. Fold up 4.5 inches from the bottom and lop off the top inch. Use your adhesive runner down each outer edge to create the pocket with little fuss or waste. Take your pick of the many embellishments that accompany this collection and decorate away! Everything matches perfectly so it will all come together in a heartbeat!
Each pocket Valentine has an envelope and note (cut journaling cards) on the front which bind the ties of the three together. Layer chipboard pieces with stickers and it’s simple to piece together! You could even have a child help you with these for a whole class.
My original intent had been, and still is, to find some of the sugar pixie straws to put in the pocket for a little taste of Valentine sweetness. Cute, don’t you think?!
Designer Tip: I know we all have paper a plenty but why waste? Make it simple, forget the fancy flaps on the side just run your adhesive up the sides to create the pocket. The pocket “edges” are the paper selvages!
