I originally saw these cards on SCS but they were using tea bags. I don't know ANYONE who drinks tea. So I decided to modify the card and make it a kool aid card. With a little more modification you could even do packets of hot cocoa or maybe soup mix (for a get well card).
Also, as a disclaimer...in the future I think I'd make my measurements a little bigger. I measured my kool aid packet and then made the card slightly bigger. But once I added the adhesive to the pocket portion...the pocket was too small! So I had to fold in the one side and bottom to make it look right in the card. It still works but would be good to make it a little bigger next time.
Ok...I started by cutting my cardstock to 4 1/4 x 9 inches. I then scored at 3 inches and again at 6 inches. On the far right panel I used my paper trimmer and cut off a portion of the top at an angle.
Next I adhered red sticky tape to the bottom and right side of the right panel (the one that you cut at an angle). Remove the liner from the tape and fold over to make a pocket.
Your basic card is finished! Now decorate the front however you want....here I used one of the $1 stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. I colored in the popscicles using an orange marker and then used clear stickles on each so they shimmer. For the saying I downloaded a font off the good old internet and printed the saying on cardstock.
And now the total project from the top view so you can see it all...
How cool would these be for aides at the kids' schools? "Thanks for being a great aide!" could be your saying.
Thanks for stopping by! I've been in the mood to do some holiday "blog candy" so make sure you come back by this weekend. I'll plan on posting it on Saturday morning and you'll have till Sunday night to enter.
