How to turn the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies by Stampin’ Up! into a Tent Card
As you probably guessed by now, I create lots of handmade cards – some turn into favourites and others don’t make ‘my heart sing’. But this one does make my heart sing. I always get excited when I come up with an idea which uses our products differently. These dies were designed primarily for gift tags, money, chocolates etc but they are so much more versatile than that. They are super easy to use (hence why I love them).
Can I use these dies for other projects?
Now whilst I made a card today, I also intend to use these dies to create lots of little pocket envelopes to place on a Christmas Tree and also to use as table gifts. They are the perfect size for the square Lindt chocolates as well as gift cards. And the dies come with an amazing bow which can be used on so many projects. But I did swap out the bow on this card with the Country Wreaths Die.
I used the Tailor Made Tags Die for the tag insert which also contains the sentiment. Do not be fooled, this is a quick & easy project suitable for both the beginner and avid crafter. I picked the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper as it is my favourite traditional Christmas patterned paper this season.
