CTMH - Are you looking for a cute way to present a small gift?

I love how easy it is to use the Art Philosophy cartridge to make quick and easy gifts/enclosures!  Today, I'm going to share with you how I made this simple tag card turned into a gift pocket.

Here are the step by step instructions:
Paper Packet: Believe
Ink: Topiary
Tools: Trimmer and Corner Rounder

Step 1 - Set Cricut to 5 1/4", and load Holiday Red cardstock.  Select Card - and the tag image all the way to the right.

Step 2: When the base is cut, add 1/8" double sided tape to the left and bottom.  Close tag, and you've created a pocket.

Step 3: Cut 4"x4" square from Topiary cardstock with your trimmer, then round the corners.

Step 4: Set Cricut to 3 3/4". Cut plaid piece as follows - 2nd row, 4th from the left.

Step 5: Layer the plaid piece onto the topiary piece.

Step 6: Add White Daisy grosgrain ribbon to the center of the piece above.

Step 7: Set Cricut to 1 1/4".  Load Sweet leaf cardstock.  Select 3rd row down, 6th button from left.

Step 8: Stamp image in Topiary ink.

Step 9: Add stamped image to top of ribbon.

Step 10:  Add this piece to the front of the tag card.

I then used tulle and curling ribbon to wrap the small item I'm placing in the card.  It's fun and festive, yet very easy to make!  Here's another look at the finished product - all ready to give to the recipient:
