Loaded Pocket Envelope – Papercrafting Playdate 116

I really like it when I can create some gift packaging using my papercrafting supplies. I especially love it when I can decorate ordinary gift items with Designer Series Paper to make a themed gift idea for someone special. Enter in the Loaded Pocket Envelope pattern! The Loaded Pocket Envelope is made from one piece of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper and can be filled with all kinds of items for gift-giving. I created four different themed gift ideas using this easy-to-make pattern: Stationary, Gardening, Get Well, and Spa Day.

The Loaded Pocket Envelope in 4 different themes.

Tucked inside (or LOADED inside I should say) of the pockets are all kinds of fun items. I encourage you to watch the video tutorial for ideas and inspiration for creating your own Loaded Pocket Envelopes. Download the pdf to help guide you while creating.

Papercrafting Playdate 116 – Loaded Pocket Envelopes

The Loaded Pocket Envelopes in 4 Themes

For my stationary themed loaded pocket envelope I am using Frames & Flowers Designer Series Paper (this is brand new and will be released on May 1st, 2024). This paper comes with 3 amazing 12 x 12 sheets of paper and 3 sheets of die cuts. I created 6 cards, a sticky note holder, and a covered mini notebook to stuff inside along with my favorite Sharpie Gel pen.

Stationary Theme

Garden Theme

My garden-themed loaded pocket envelope is created with the Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper and stuffed with a package of 4 cards, a seed packet matchbook holder, seed pops, seed tape, pruning tool, and a plant stake.

Get Well Theme

This pocket-of-love is sure to make someone’s day. I used the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper and filled it with a get-well card, a tea bag matchbook holder, an instant soup packet, travel size acetaminophen and antacid and a drink mix.

Here is how you make the matchbook tea bag holder. Find the dimensions in the pdf.

Spa Day Theme

This loaded pocket envelope uses the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper. I decorated some Burt’s Bees chapstick, lotion, headband, a double pocket tea bag holder, a nail file holder, a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square matchbook and lots of face masks! The dimensions for creating the nail file holder, tea bag holder and matchbook are in the pdf.

I hope you have loved these projects and can think of one or two people on your gift-giving list who might enjoy a Loaded Pocket Envelope stuffed to the brim with decorated loveliness! Happy creating!
