Do you ever need a cute little pouch to put something in? Perhaps something for a CD or photographs? This is one of the fastest and cutest projects you will ever make. A half sheet o f Designer Series Paper, a half sheet of white card stock, and a little bit of ink is all you need.
Start off with a 6′ X 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper(DSP). I used Crips Cantaloupe in this sample. You want to score it at 4″ and 10″. I punched a 6″ strip of Whisper White card stock with the Scallop Boarder Punch. I adhered this to the smaller flap, which will become the top flap. This helps cover the small gap when the flap is closed. Place a strip of sticky strip on the two outer edges of of the 4″ piece. This will form the pocket.
Next you will want to make a belly band for the top. It is 1 1/2″x 11″. It does not quite go all the way around the top of the package. That’s ok, do not panic. Use your Decorative Label punch with another coordinating color from your DSP. I used Baked Brown Sugar. Place a dimensional on each edge of the whisper white band. Place the punched piece of Baked Brown Sugar over the dimensionals. This will make the spacing come out perfectly. Use coordinating ribbon as well. I used about 13″-14″ of the Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Trim.
Third, stamp the large label from Chalk Talk on Whisper White card stock with Baked Brown Sugar ink. Cut it out using your Big Shot and the coordinating Chalk Talk frame lit dies. I hooked the label onto the ribbon. I placed a dimensional near the top just to help hold it in place a little better. Make sure it is only on the white belly band so it doesn’t stick to your pouch.
Here is the pouch opened. It is the perfect size to place a stack of 4″x6″ photos. Or if
you’d like to give hundreds of photos, place a CD inside the pouch. Maybe some sort of thin chocolate bar would fit in there instead of photos? Hmmm…. What will you put in your pouch?
