Another project we recently did in my stamp club was a small 3D project that is a template available to demonstrators on the Stampin' Up website. It is something you can just print off your computer directly onto your cardstock, then just cut and score where needed. Easy peasy!

I wanted this to be a project that was guy-friendly, and could contain a variety of things inside. This pocket would be perfect for candy (as seen here), a gift card, jewelry, and many other things.

The hardest part was punching the holes for the ribbon to go through. Using a Crop-A-Dile, I explained to my customers that it was easiest to punch through the lid portion first, then use that as a guide to punch through the front portion second. Then you use the ribbon to tie it together. I debated on using brads to close the package, but figured if this was given to a guy, he wouldn't know what to do with a brad. Ribbon, albeit feminine, is easier for men to understand. :)
