Valentine Vellum Treat Pockets
GlueArts Designer: Grace Tolman 

It’s always fun to give out Valentine treats and with these DIY containers, you can make your gifts extra special.

Supplies Used:

Vellum- Worldwin
Cardstock- Pink, WorldWin
Pattern papers- Pretty Little Things, My Little Shoebox
Ribbon- Hobby Lobby
Border punch- Fiskars
Scallop flower punch- Creative Memories

Paper crimper- Source Unknown
Typewriter- Royal
Others- Valentine treats


1. Cut an 8 ½”x11” paper in half and then score the 5 ½ x 8 ½” piece horizontally on the 2” and 6” marks and then vertically on the ¾” mark. Fold the vellum into a pocket. 
2. On the ¾” strip, cut the two edge portions which will leave you with the center portion only. Round the corners of this portion. Create your pocket by adhering the folds to each using some Vellum adhesive. 
3. Punch a decorative border on the top side.
4. Punch out as many flowers and circle centers from pattern paper as you need. 
5. Adhere the circle centers to the flower pieces with some High Tac.
6. Add some glitter glue around the edge of the circle centers and set aside to dry. 
7. Cut a strip of pink cardstock that is 1 ¾” wide and 12” long. Run it through a paper crimper, wrap around the vellum and adhere with some high tac. 
8. Decorate the front of the pockets with ribbons. Add some U cut it foam adhesive to the back sides of the flowers and adhere to the container. 
9. Type or handwrite your treat sentiment on bright pink cardstock. 
10. Trim into strips and adhere to the bottom right side of the pocket with mini square adhesives.
