Mini Pocket Envelope Dies

Stampin Up Mini Pocket Envelope

Last Friday was my grandson, Nolan’s fifth birthday.  As a birthday surprise, his parents took him and his sister, Madelyn to Disney World.  Rob and I decided to give each of them a Disney gift card to spend while they are there.  I didn’t have a lot of time but I wanted to put the gift cards in something other than to just hand them to the kids so I made these two gift card holders for them.

The gift card holders were very easy to make using the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies.  One die cuts out the entire envelope.  All you need to do is glue one side and the bottom together.  It is as easy as pie!  I cut the first one out of Starry Sky card stock (Nolan’s favorite color) and the other one out of 2022-2024 InColor Glimmer Paper for Madelyn in Tahitian Tide (her favorite color).  I made Mickey and Mini Mouse using retired punches in Basic Black card stock.  I hand-cut the bow tie out and used a retired die to cut out the hair bow.  Then I just had to add googly eyes because all kids love googly eyes!  The “For You” is also a die from a retired set.

The nice thing about the Mini Pocket Envelope dies is you can give them alone or you can put them in a card.  Both of them took me about ten minutes to make.  Actually, it only took that long because I. had to search for the “For You” dies.

Stampin Up Mini Pocket Envelope

This is the third card we made at my mini stamp camp last week.  In case you forgot, I decided to concentrate on using Stampin’ Up!®  stand-alone dies from the 2022/2023 Annual Catalog and the July – December Mini Catalog.  Last week I showed you some tags for birthdays and Christmas.  Earlier this week I showed you a card where we used the Designer Tags.  This time we made a simple birthday card with a fun gift card holder inside it.

To make this card I first cut a 1.5″ x 5.5″ piece of Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper.  This paper is a hostess item that can only be purchased using hostess dollars.  There are 48 sheets in this pack which is enough to last a lifetime (almost)!  I took a 1/2″ strip of Pool Party card stock and attached it to the back of the strip of DSP.  Then I adhered it to the Basic White card base.  I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink using the Biggest Wish stamp set.

Next, I cut some more of the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper using the Mini Pocket Envelope Die.  This die is perfect for holding a gift card and it only takes one die to make it.  The die set comes with a total of ten dies so you can add embellishments to your pocket envelope such as a bow and leaves.   It also has various dies to cut out sentiments for the front.

After this, I cut out the set of leaves in Blackberry Bliss card stock.  I wrapped a .75″ x 6″ piece of the DSP and wrapped it around the pocket envelope.  I adhered the leaves under that piece.  I used a stamp from the set called Charming Sentiments, stamped it in Pool Party ink and cut it out using a stitched oval die from the Mini Pocket Envelope die set.

Remember there are lots of these stand-alone dies in the catalog.  You can see them in the index in the back.
