Be My Valentine Gift Card Holder

I made this gift tag holder to give to one of my "Valentine's" in Feb. I thought I would share the details with you but I am really not sure of the paper company because it was made from some scraps that I found. Isn't it amazing what you can make from scraps.
I took an A2 card, held it together and cut the top to look like a tag. I placed a piece of Bo Bunny Pink polka dotted paper to the inside front of the card, trim and glued it into place. I then folded the front of the card over to form a flap and glued the right side and bottom together to form a pocket. I glued my paper to the front of the card and then the flap, once I had that done I glued the flap down.
I fussy cut the bee from one piece of my scrap paper. Once I had my gift tag holder completely made I then added the Glossy Accent to the bee but this is the very last thing and allowed it to dry over night.

My flower was formed from 3 different size circle punches. (If you don't have circle punches just cut 3 different size circles, they don't have to be perfect) Now that you have the 3 circles, mist them lightly with water, wad them up, un-wad them and allow them to dry. Glue the circles together once they are dried. Add a brad to the center of the flower and attach it to the bottom of the card with Glue Dots. I then took my tiny attacher and placed some staples to my gift card holder.
The twisted piece of paper is 1/8" x 6" that has been misted, twisted around a small dowel, and once dried taken off the dowel. Attach it to the card to form a trail from the flower to the bee. I added a sticker from the SRM Thinking of You Sentiment sheet.
****Remember to do your Glossy Accent last and allow it to dry over night. Glossy Accent is a wonderful way to give dimension to your projects.
