Bucket of Popcorn

Do your kids get invited to alot of birthday parties? Mine do.
I live in a small town where shopping is limited, especially for budget-priced gifts. Most kids I know have enough stuff and I really don't want to give them another cheap toy. 
But, we do have a movie theatre with very reasonable admission prices, so I like to gift movie passes.

Today's card is an oldie, but a goodie. I've made several of these in the past year, so I thought I'd share.

I came up with this popcorn card to put the movie passes in.
I used the Flower Pot Pocket card tutorial from SCS, and modified it to become a popcorn bucket by scoring lines and sanding them.
I used my cricut to cut out several flower shapes, but you could use a punch too.
Then I stamped the little flower in bamboo ink on each of them (TIP: stamp them all while they're still on the cricut mat), and stuck them onto the top of the card, popping some up with 3D foam.
Kinda looks like popcorn, doesn't it?
Then I just tape the movie pass cards onto the pull out part.

The kids (and parents) seem to like them, and I'm sure these would work for any movie buffs you know!
 What do you think?
