Make It Meaningful: Love You Shaker Pocket

As Valentine's Day is fast approaching, I wanted to give you an additional idea for someone that you love with this "Love You Shaker Pocket." This sweet card or tag can be hung on a doorknob with the curled wire so your intended can easily find it. This is just one reason I love this card so much!



To create the tag, I stitched two rectangles of white diagonally striped vellum together. I placed sequins inside the pocket and then closed the pocket with pink decorative tape. I then decorated the pocket with a doily; brads; hand-cut, glittered leaves; stickers; lace; and more. I also embossed my sentiment in white on an extra piece of plain vellum.

Here's a look at the pocket close up. Note the white embossed sentiment. I love the look of embossing on vellum. Be careful when heat embossing on vellum. Hold the heat gun away from the vellum and slowly heat the embossing powder.


Look for additional Valentine ideas throughout my blog by using my search feature. You'll find cards, layouts, gift ideas, and more.
