Today’s project is a quick & easy gift pocket that is so simple you won’t believe it! It’s just the right size for this little treat of M&Ms. Scroll down for my first crafting video.

The difficult part was making a video, uploading it to YouTube, and linking it to my blog. But, I needed to show you, because, as simple as it is, it’s difficult to explain.



You start with a 6″ X 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper, and fold as I have shown. A bone folder helps to get the nice, permanent folds. It stays together without tape, glue or any adhesive. Amazing, but true!

I decorated the front flap with hearts from the Hearts and Stars Elements pack. I glued the solid pieces, and tied the open pieces with Baker’s Twine through a punched hole.

So, now that I had all of these cute, little treats, what was I to do with them? Well, I took them to a new group of Mahjong friends. Everyone likes M&Ms, right?

And, this project is just right for the Paper Player’s theme challenge, “Will you be my Valentine?”


I hope you have fun making this gift pocket. I may even learn how to talk on my next video!
