So after I made a handful of Christmas cards for my kids' teachers, I decided I would insert Starbucks giftcards inside. I bought a bunch of Starbucks giftcards and then.....what, NO little envelopes? I was a little peeved, momentarily, especially when my barista suggested I can go to any Starbucks and see if I could find the little envelopes they go in - this is AFTER she has already rung up my 10 or so giftcards! Grrrrr! But then, I thought....I'll make my own! However, instead of making little envelopes for each one of the many giftcards I bought I decided to just make pockets to hold the giftcards inside the greeting cards.
I wanted to make a pocket using corner picture holders for the giftcards. I looked through all the cartridges I have linked in my Gypsy and couldn't find a corner picture holder to my liking. Sure some carts had "corner" images to mimic an actual picture corner holder, but I wanted one that can serve as a "pocket" so that the giftcard recipient can easily take it out. So I made my own! Love my G (just saying LOL) for this! I decided to pick out the corner image on the Picturesque cartridge that looks like it could be a doily corner. Then I clicked on "Shift/Lock" key and chose its coordinating bottom layer. I then added 2 rectangular images to serve as "flaps" to hold the giftcard in place, and welded those with the bottom image.
After cutting the images on the Cricut (I needed a bunch!), I folded in the flaps on the bottom images.
