Have you ever held an event? Whether it’s a Creative Memories® event or just a family Thanksgiving, your number one priority as a host is making your guests feel welcomed. So, how do you go about doing that? With the right souvenirs, of course! The DIY paper pocket souvenirs below are guaranteed to leave your guests with a warm and fuzzy feeling and eager to come again!
My goal was to create a sweet souvenir guests who attended my Croptoberfest events. The pocket is big enough for a business card and it holds two chocolate squares in the front and back. This project is a great way to use supplies from any collection and stretch your event budget.
For this this project, you will need:
- Harvest Delight Paper Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Harvest Delight Variety Mat Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- 12-inch Trimmer or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- 2-Way Corner Rounder or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Original Border Maker System with Simple Leaf Chain Border Maker Cartridge
- All-Purpose Scissors or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Precision Point Adhesive Pen or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Foam Squares or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Hole Punch
- Ribbon and Baker’s Twine
Step 1: Cut various pieces of paper into 6″ x 6″ pieces.
Step 2: Fold each paper in half, point to point.
Step 3: On the long side, score 1/2″ using the 12-inch Trimmer.
Step 4: Rotate the paper so the longest line is at the top and score it at 2-3/4″. Flip the paper and score it at 2-3/4″ on the other side. Burnish all of the score lines.
Step 5: Fold the side flaps in and then fold up and over on the remaining score lines.
Step 6: Use the 2-Way Corner Rounder to round the top flap.
Step 7: Punch a hole using a 1/8″ hole punch to create a hole at the top of the holder.
Step 8: Thread ribbon through the hole and create a knot. Add baker’s twine for an additional embellishment.
Step 9: Punch out leaves using the Leaf Chain Border Maker Cartridge using various Harvest Delight mats. Snip the leaves apart. Glue individual leaves to contrasting mats using the Precision Point Adhesive Pen. Cut out the leaves using All-Purpose Scissors.
Step 10: Adhere individual leaves to the holders using Foam Squares.
Step 11: Add chocolate treats to both front and back pockets, as well as your business card.
