#SimplyG45 Halloween Pocket Cards Tutorial with G45 Place in Time
Hello, Friends! Before we know it, Halloween will be here! Have you started your Halloween crafting yet? Well, no worries! Today’s project is a #SimplyG45 Halloween Pocket Cards Tutorial that will have you ready for the big day in a jiffy!
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.

What delightfully fun cards for Halloween, Kathy. I’m so glad i have the Place in Time papers to play with. Watching you create these was fun, too. I’m always amazed at how you can group all the various elements into a cohesive design. You’re a true master teacher for this. Hope you weren’t badly affected by the hurricane. Sent heartfelt thoughts to you during that time. As always, tfs!
