Default Ideas for Pocket Die

I just got a die I ordered and now I'm trying to come up with more ideas on how to use it. It is Stitched Slots Pocket Die Cut Set - by Matty's Crafting Joy Do any of you have this die or something similar and can you share pictures of what you've done with it? My searches on pinntrest etc haven't really come up with anything good. I've attached pictures of two cards I made but I'm looking for more ideas.

I don’t have it but my first thought was “gift card holder!” I think you could pop a gift card in that front slot (either a purchased one or one you make yourself with a promise to do something for the recipient (babysitting, yard work, bake cookies...)) and tuck something related in the back one (die cut or panel with a stamped image).

My first thought was to make one for a scrapbook page for hidden journaling. The title could be on the bottom half of the card front part and then a horizontal tag with journaling could be peeking out the top of the pocket.

Thank you. BTW - the die actually has three levels of pockets. I just cut it down to two to make it fit on the card. Yes, I think it would work beautifully for journal cards for a scrapbook page and I also think think a gift card would work nicely for a card. Thank you both of you.

I saw this die for sale on Amazon and the example they post is very cute with 3 tags. My first thought is to tuck in a little square of Kleenex to send to a sick person, or band-aids to an injured person.

Ooooo... I like that. That will get me thinking of other things that could be tucked in besides tags with words.

Maybe have baby clothes peeking out like drawers? Or little stuffed animals peeking out for kids (monkey, giraffe head, etc). Oh yea. This has me thinking.

Got home from work and tried an idea that you all gave me. See pictures attached. I tucked in one tag and one fussy cut image. Thought this might bee fun for kid.

What about die cut flowers tucked in the middle slot, and a packet of seeds in the top one (or the other way around). You could add a sentiment about gardens or flowers etc.

A bookmark in one of the slots and a book-related image and sentiment?

I love the idea of critters sticking out and that dragon! And the bandaides/tissue is cute too!

I think you can get a lot of action out of that.

Maybe a bunch of kids with 123/alpha DP for a first day back to school card for a little one.

Candles for birthdays. For the bigger ones it gives you a place to put more candles.

Flowers/veggies like a garden with dirt sections. Maybe stick in a rabbit. Put a gardener/farmer outside the slots. Those grow in rows.

Attach a bunch of them and make a different kind of advent that hangs down a wall.

Maybe for a little kid get 10 slots together, each panel is a number and you stick that many items in that slot that they can use to count with. Double layer them so they are more heavy duty for play or diamond glaze them...maybe make a few extra for mommy when they get messed up or lost.

Oh! Maybe you could do a Noah's Ark with just two slots?
