Now I knew I couldn't just give her a gift card or money, it needed a special package to arrive in. Being she's a "flowers and lace" kind of girl --here's what I came up with:
Here it is with some $ in it -- just to show you what it looks like/where the pocket is.
I usually never make just one of something, so here's the second one I made---the tag is blank on this one - waiting for the monogram letter of the person I choose to give it to.
Here's a picture tutorial of how I made these vintage pockets.
Step 1: Begin with a double sided 5 x 9 1/2 inch piece of paper
Step 2: Fold the bottom corners up like this
Step 3: Turn the card over and fold the "triangles" down like this
Step 4: Turn the card back over and fold up to form the pocket like this
Step 5: Fold the corners out like this
Step 6: - Glue sides down and front "triangles" ---Decorate!
Supplies used in mine:

- Clip Art from Clearly Vintage
- Cuttlebug die cuts - letters
- Misc. Buttons/thread/ribbon
- Ribbon Roses
- Vintage lace
I'd love to see your take on it.
