card making :: pocket cards

IMG_5670_1600cc

I discovered a product line called Studio 112 while shopping at my local JoAnn Fabric and Craft store the other day.  They make all sorts of embellishments and card making components for $1, which is great for crafting on a budget.  Things are packed in multiples so you get more than one for your dollar, such as these cute favor bags which came as a pack a three.  I turned them into three pocket cards to hold a gift card by simply layering some of the components and using a piece of double sided tape to secure the gift card onto a paper tag that can be pulled out of the pocket.

card making :: dollar bin finds for making valentines

You know what I’m talking about.  You stroll into Target thinking “I’m just going to get x, y, and z and zoom out of here.”  Said nobody ever, right?!  What’s worst is they put those dollar bins right in the walkway so you have to look because they’re right there, right?!  Well I’ll be the first to admit that occasionally you can find some really good deals there, and for things that are actually useful.

For example, they’ve got some super cute crafting supplies for a mere buck that can help you make some pretty cute valentines.  And even better?  You can use the cards beyond Valentine’s Day for other occasions such as a birthday, an anniversary, congrats-on-becoming-engaged, and so on and so forth.  Here are three quick and easy designs you can pull together with some dollar bin finds and just in time for Valentine’s Day (which, by the way, is on February 14th!).
