Thursday Tutorial for FCCB- Pocket Card for tea, cocoa or cider

Hello everyone its time for the Thursday Tutorial at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays. This week the challenge is "Warming Up With Hot Cocoa". I hope you are eager to join us for the challenge after two weeks off. We would love to see your projects.
So for today's tutorial I tried out a project and tutorial I would like to share with your from Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady. I am going to make these for my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group next week. I try to take a little something every time we meet. When I saw Sheilas challenge and video I thought it was perfect. Her project is called the "Tea Time Pocket Card."
This is the first one I made using Sheilas Gypsy file available on her blog.
I used a MS punch across the bottom.
This is the inside. The bottom has flaps that fold under to make the pocket.
Next I took one of the tea pot cutouts and made another "Iris like" card. The reason I called it "Iris like" is I made the pattern but didn't fold the paper. I used scrap paper and cut it into strips. Glued to pocket, added ribbon and buttons.
Also I wanted to let you know since the card is A2 size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 a Spiced Cider or Cocoa packet will fit inside the pocket too.
So check out Sheila's videos and Gypsy file at Shes a Sassy Lady. Let her know I sent you.
Happy Craftin this week.
