Happy Valentine’s Day!
If you are still looking for a quick love note or treat to share with someone you love today, here is a project we made at my Cool Cards and Sweet Treats class last weekend. It is a fun and fast project to make any time of the year, plus it has the added bonus of being a great way to use up all that extra designer paper or 6×6 paper pads you may have lying around.
I call it an “origami treat pouch” because it is all folds and takes no adhesive unless you want a little bit to tack down the top point of your treat. But unlike some origami that is a ton of steps and little tiny complicated folds, this has 5 score lines and a couple quick folds and you are done (check out my video below for how to do it).
Added bonus, it stands up on its own too!
I filled my pockets with wrapped Ghirardelli squares which are a perfect fit but you can also make cute little love notes to go inside as well. You can cut 8 of these card bases out of 1 sheet of cardstock.
The card base is 2 3/4” x 4 1/4”, so once you score it, it is 2 1/8” x 2 3/4”. I kept my card simple so that it could actually slide behind the chocolate treat I tucked in the pocket. It uses the Oh Whale stamp set and just stamped the whale first and then the hearts and sentiment. Add a little Dazzling Details to its eye and you have some cute sparkle to his eye.
Want to see how it is done?
I put together a quick video to show you how it scores and folds together. So check it out and let me know what you think!
