Here is another way to make an easy template for the heart pocket in any size you like, with no dark copy lines! This also works as a template for a fold-up card scoring all 4 semi-circles for the flaps, laid in to the center one at a time with the last one tucked in like the flaps on a cardboard box. Take a round Tupperware seal of any size (I use an old "A" seal for a nice sized pocket card - works great for packaging gift tags to give as a gift) and measure the diameter from edge to edge. Draw a square on CS with the 4 sides the same length as the circle's diameter, leaving room around the edges to trace the semi-circles. Measure and mark a light dot in the center of the square. Next line up the edges of the lid along each side of the square, just touching the center dot of the square and trace a semi circle on each side of the square. You should end up with a 4 petal flower, just like the template on the link. Once you have a sample you can trace the next one from your first one until you want a different size. Using this method, you can make it in any size that you have a lid, or anything else round that holds still long enough to trace!
Hope this helps someone!

There is a new punch out that is this shape. It is only 1 1/2" across the inside square when all 4 sides are folded. If you fold up all sides it makes an envelope, if you fold all 4 sides up 'box' style (one edge in one edge out of each petal) it makes a poofy packet.
Super cute! Folded on three sides it fits the tags perfect!
I found it only at Hobby Lobby so far...
Has anyone uploaded the boxer short template yet?
I am wanting to make these but do not have time to get to the copy shop to blow it up. Just wondering if any one else has had the time and willing to share!
