Lollipop Card Valentine

These instructions were using our MME Valentine kit from last year but would work great with any papers, and make a fantastic Valentine for kids to take to school ;0)

What you will need

2 pcs of patterned paper or cardstock

You can make your pocket heart card smaller than the origingal template from Paper Zone. Make a copy and reduce by 25%, 50% etc. This is how I made the smaller version for the lollipop holder.

Cut out the template and place on the patterned paper of your choice, trace around and cut out. Now do this again for the inside lining of the heart pocket.

Next step glue the two pieces of patterned paper of cardstock together--the backs of the patterned paper touching--with the patterns facing out on each side.

Fold up the "petals" and use a small amount of adhesive on the overlap area to hold the heart pocket together, not to much or you will stick the flaps to the back side of the pocket and won't be able to stuff it with goodies

Now you can embellish as desired. I added a button from my button collection and tied a small bow from scrap ribbon pcs I had lying around.

Now you can make the card base or use a premade card base, use another small pc of the coordinating patterned paper for the top layer of the card.
The great thing about this project the size can be large,medium, small so you can alter the card size to the supplies you have on hand.
Assemble the card base, then attach the heart pocket to the front of the card! Now you can fill it with lots of fun stuff! It's perfect for giftcards, small love notes,
paper flower bouqets, even the square chocolate mints will fit nicely in the pocket!

Pocket Card Variation

Reduce the template to about 40% of the orignal size. If you're using the standard school size/child lollipops) Trace and cut out two of these pieces.
glue the two pieces together with back sides touching--put lollipop in the center, stick facing down. Now attach the "petal" flaps to each other and it also helps to put a
small glue dot on the lollipop so that it stays secure in the packaging! Now you can embellish by tying a ribbon onto the lolly stick!
