Here's a lovely way to present a pocket of gift cards, tags, or coasters... anything really.... gift card/s even! I've made one of these envelope pockets before and loved it to bits (and I mean bits!!!) Time for another - this time for Easter :P

I've filled it with a couple of doily tags (just to show you) and coasters (still got to make a few more coasters yet) for my Easter breakfast table - I'm going with yellow for my main theme colour this year and I think I'll use this little pocket to keep my coasters in :wink:

Here's how its made...
Fold one oblong paper bag
Image





You could cut the top of it with pinking shears - sew around the edges as you please, (if you want to sew across the lower horizontal edge where you can see the seam binding on mine - then do that first (unfolded) before continuing)
After you have done that - add your decorations...
Misted Tim Holtz Seam Binding with Tattered Angels Monster Mash, Lost & Found Oliver Chipboard strip and 'Happy' banner piece, Oliver Buttons(to look like a little nest of eggs)
Image
If you dont want to sew - then glue and draw on some stitches!


The little doilies were made from Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie Quinn paper(an oldie but a goodie for Easter!!!)
And there are so many choices for doily dies and to name a few =
Dizzy Doily
Decorative Doily Duo
French Pastry Doily
Nestabilities Eyelet Circles
Nestabilities Eyelet Ovals- ooh these ones in the shop look like easter eggs!

Here's the coasters which are doily stickers from Lost & Found Oliver Sticker Elements and backed with Oliver Yellow Honey Paper
(the yellow is on the other side of the cream)

Have a bit of Easter fun with some lovely presentation just from decorating a simple paper bag!

This works a treat Mandy and wouldn't that be a lovely way to give someone a gift card for a present as well.

And I do love that little Easter Chicken - we have restocked that paper several times now but it is no longer available from the wholesalers so what we have in stock is the very last of it. Love what you have done with it
