Valentine's day is only a few short weeks away so I modified my last card design to have some heart cutouts. It doesn't scream "Valentine's Day" so I feel like you can use this for many other occasions as well! Maybe for your significant other's birthday or even your friends and family. This design doesn't require any glue and is simply just 2 pieces of card stock. The beauty is in it's simplicity!
The card uses 2 light card stock and is 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. So about the size of a typical card. Outside of the Cricut machine, it does require a scoring tool. You could always hide the scoring layer though if you want to fold it manually. It doesn't require any glue because I made some cutouts where you can tuck the 2 colored card stock together. I have some more photos below where the card is unfolded so you can see where it tucks. Also, you may notice that I like trifold cards. I love it because it allows me to neatly tuck the top corner down. It feels very satisfying to put this together!
- 2 Any light card stock

The blue card stock is tucked in at the corners to keep it staying put.
The card opened all of the way so you can see where the top tuck goes at the tip.
- Fold inwards on the scored side to make a clean fold.
- The narrower card stock with a bunch of cutouts goes on the outside.
- Textured card stock gives you the look you see in these photos. The quality of your card stock will make a big difference. If your card stock tears at the fold area and you can see the inside (usually white color), then it is not as good quality and I recommend using a different one.

The box is 4in x 4in and can fit treats or a small gift like tie, necklace, bracelet, or gift card. The goodie bag is 4x6 inches and is 1 1/2 inch in depth.
