#SimplyG45 Halloween Pocket Cards Tutorial with G45 Place in Time

Each card measures 5″ x 5″ and has in inside pocket for treats, cash or gift cards.  Made with my number one all time favorite G45 Place in Time Collection, these sweet cards are super quick and easy to make, use a limited amount of materials, and are quite affordable to make. You can make all four of these fabulous cards for about $15.

To make the cards, cut out the images, tags, borders and post card from one Place in time October Sheet.  Then cut up the patterned side of the other sheet.  I show you how to do this in the video tutorial.  You’ll also need 2 sheets of 12×12 Patterns and Solids to complement the Place in time papers.  I used Master Detective, but you could use whatever you have in your On hand.  The whole idea here is to dig into your unused stash and put it to good use.

I bought these  Jolee’s Boutique Ravens and Words stickers a couple of years ago at a 50% off sale at JoAnn’s.  The stickers have been retired, but I managed to find some online HERE.  However, the cards are super cute even without the stickers.  I just had them in my stash, and decided to use them up.

You will love the way we make this pocket!  It’s the easiest pocket design ever!

We’ll build these easy layers together in the video tutorial.  These are great basic card “recipes” that you’ll be able to adapt and use with any of the Place in Time papers.

TIP: Die cut doilies from scrap cardstock to save money.  I have several doily dies in various sizes, and I use them all the time.

Two of the cards are top fold, and two are side fold, just to keep things interesting.  You use the same base for both types of cards, which makes life easy!

I love this darling vintage image.  Pop on a chipboard charm, and the card practically makes itself!

In the video tutorial, I’ll  show you how to use even tiny snippets of border prints  and imperfect die cuts to make your cards look fantastic.

Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio for the RRR Hop

Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio: Really Reasonable Ribbon and Authentique Nightfall

Hello, Friends!   Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.

Don’t you just love it when you find the perfect ribbon and paper combination?  That’s what inspired this whimsical Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio that I have to share with you today.  I conjured it up using the Fab-BOO-luss Really Reasonable Ribbon September Ribbon Club Assortment and the Spook-tacular Authentique Nightfall Collection.

Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio by Kathy Clement for Really Reaonable Ribbon Product by Authentique Paper Photo 02

Look at this sassy little witch all dressed up in her Halloween Ballgown.  She’s ready to tear up the dance floor!  This is a 5 1/4″ x 8″ card folio with a 1/2″ spine.  I’ve dressed this mixed media project up with scrumptious Apple Green Satin Swirl and Tangerine Satin Swirl double bow.  Halloween Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and Spiderweb Satin Ribbon add texture, color and pattern to the overall design.  Here’s a peek at all the beautiful ribbons in this month’s assortment.

Witches’ Halloween Ball Card Folio:  It’s All About the Dress!

Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio by Kathy Clement for Really Reaonable Ribbon Product by Authentique Paper Photo 01

The focal image on this folio is a combination of fussy cut images, an altered rosette and some really cute witch legs!  The original stockings were red and gray, so I had to paint the stripes with Carved Pumpkin Distress Paint.   Here’s how I made the rosette ball gown:

  • First, Cut a 2″ x 12″ strip of patterned paper.
  • Next, punch a 1″ circle from scraps.
  • Then place the long side of the paper on your scoreboard and score every 1/4″.
  • Next, accordion fold all the scored lines, then glue the ends together.
  • Place a dime sized puddle of hot glue on a non-stick craft sheet or other non-porous surface.
  • Now, with the top of the rosette gathered together, push down into the puddle of glue. Be careful not to touch the hot glue as it is, well…HOT!
  • The glued ends will split apart.  This is OK!
  • Now, quickly add a dab of glue to the top of the rosette and hold down the punched circle until the glue sets.
  • Carefully trim off the torn ends where the rosette split apart.  Now you just have to position the “skirt” of your ballgown on your card.  I added dimensionals to the back side of my fussy cut witch so that the heights of the rosette and the image would match up.
Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio: Creating the Sentiment

Mat the Great Pumpkin 3″ x 4″ card on designer paper.  Then die cut it with a circle die.  Back with foam dimensionals or waste chipboard and adhere as seen.  The designer paper on the back side of the sentiment makes for a neat look on the card interior.  The witch’s “bouquet” is made with some old Petaloo flowers that I had in my stash and Natural Burlap String.

Witches Halloween Ball Card Folio: A Peek Inside

I’ve loaded up the inside of this folio with pockets, inserts, a waterfall, and a hidden journaling spot.

The side pocket holds two cute little tab topped inserts made from table scraps.  Each has a magnetic closure and is filled with images cut from the 6″ x 6″ collection.

You will find a triple pocket and a 4 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ photo mount.

These are the cute little tags that are tucked into the pockets.  Each one is topped with Halloween Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon from the Ribbon Club Assortment.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a quick and easy Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial with Really Reasonable Ribbon to share with you.  The Nightfall Collection and the RRR September Ribbon Club Assortment were made for one another!

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 01

There is so much to love about these Boo-tiful little cards!  First of all, you can make using your scraps, which always makes me happy.  Then, you can make these 4.25″ x 5.5″ paper pretties in a jiffy, because the “recipe” for each card is really similar.  Next, each card has a super easy to make gift card holder inside.  Finally, you have to take a look at the cute factor!  Has Halloween ever been cuter?   Let’s take a closer look at each card, then we’ll dive into the Snapguide tutorial below.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial:  Good Witch or Bad Witch?

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 02

This sweet little witch is too cute to spook, so I’m putting her down in the “good witch” column!  I’ve dressed up this card with Tangerine Swirl Satin Ribbon and Natural Burlap String.  And I love the border of Halloween Confetti Grosgrain Ribbon for the pop of color it adds to the design.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 03

I love to add ribbon to the interior of my cards, too.  Black Spiderweb Satin Ribbon adds a touch of class to the gift card holder inside this cute card.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial:  Which Witch?

While this witch isn’t quite as adorable as our first card model, she’s still pretty fun.  And how bad can she be with that cutie pie owl by her side?  I’ve paired up more Tangerine Satin Swirl Ribbon with 3/8″ Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon on this card for a perfect match!

You’ll find 3/8″ Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon inside this card as well.  The black cat gives it the seal of approval.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial:  Trick or Treat

This is the cutest image with that little ghoul peeking out of her costume!  To go with the dotty background, I selected Halloween Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

And the cute couple inside this card are black tie ready with a bit of Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon.  By the way, while I’m thinking of it, all the small images on the treat bags and in the small frame are from the Nightfall 6×6 Paper Bundle.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial: Too Cute to Spook

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 09

The focal image on this card is actually a sticker that I matted on black cardstock.  It’s just the cutest!  Tangerine Checkerboard Satin Ribbon lends a soft Halloween Glow to this darling card.

Ribbon is a great way to add a pop of color to the interior of a card, too.  Halloween Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon looks fabulous on the front of this gift card holder.
