Candy Bar Pocket Card Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Yesterday at Old Town Temecula (a historic section of my town), there was some sort of event. . .it was called the "Southern California Torch Run". It's like the Olympic torch run but this torch run is to raise money for the special Olympics. How nice.

I took a picture of the fire truck as it was passing by and the fireman waved at me while I was taking the picture.

I created a tutorial for this candy-bar pocket card for my "club" blog site a few months ago and decided to post it for all of you to try out. Many times, I create a tutorial and I'll create it after I've completed the project but the funny thing is sometimes I'll never make another one like it ever again. I know. . .isn't that terrible?


I'm going to tell you a little secret. . .sometimes, I'll create the tutorial and I'm not even sure it's understandable or easy to follow. LOL! So today I followed my own instructions and it actually worked out.

This card is created using an envelope to insert a candy bar. It's a great project (well, I think so) for a party favor or to give to your kids' teachers. I think I'm going to make a few of these for my daughter's teachers before the school ends. Sort of like a teacher's appreciation gift.

When opened on the inside, the candy fits into the pocket to the right of the card.


This is the candy bar outside of the pocket. I know it's a bit dressed up but it's just fun and cute. It's a great way to use up your designer papers.

Card Details:

Stamps: Stampin Up In the Stars
Ink: CTMH Watermelon and Topiary, DCWV Summer Stack
Paper: CTMH Watermelon and Topiary
Accessories: SU Large Star punch, Basic Basic Ribbon, SU Key Tag Punch, 1" circle punch

Anyway. . .try out the tutorial and tell me what you think! Hope you like it!
