"HeyGrl" A Loaded Valentine Envelope

HEYGRL it's time for a fifth Friday project challenge at #TGIF353.  This Friday's challenge is to create a loaded envelope.  These envelopes can be anything you want it to be from small and simple to big and bountiful.  I made a Valentine themed two-pocket loaded envelope.  I filled it with hand made paper wands, a cute tag to sign, along with fun candies, chocolates, and prizes.

Here's a full view of how I filled the pockets.  The front pocket is decorated with stamped images from the Driving By Stamp Set and die cut letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies.  I have to mention that in person the letters are super sparkly as they are cut from the new Mother of Pearl Paper!!  This paper is GOJUS!

This sweet "you've got style" is the tag I mentioned that I will write a special message on for my Valentine friend.  I continued to use the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Driving By.  I die cut a Tailor Made Tag, stamped it with Memento Black Ink, colored with Stampin' Blends, and heat embossed the greeting.

Here's a look at what I packed inside the pockets including the paper wands.  Two of them are accordion folded medallions made with Pattern Party DSP, Always in My Heart Stamp Set, and both the Layering Circles and Playful Alphabet Dies.

I found fun candies perfect for my loaded Valentine envelope from Target and the Dollar Tree.  While my envelope pockets have plackets to give some dimension I looked for fairly flat items to tuck into my gift.

Here's a link to my video tutorial for creating a loaded envelope and the photo below is a reference for the measurements I use.
