On May 18, I showed this little triangle pouch, and several people have asked me how it was made. I actually learned how to make this fun little pouch from my BFF Tracy, and until she gets a blog, I'll just share all I learn from her with you….well those things that are stamping related…hee!hee! With the awesome Ski-Slope Designer Series Paper, and the Felt Flurries just screaming at me "use me! use me!" Well I could not resist, so here you go. Oh and forgive the horrible nails, it'll be a while for them to get to looking half decent since they have to grow out from years of artificial nails.
Supplies needed: paper cutter, bone folder, scallop punch, sticky strip, mini glue dots, crop-a-dile, felt flurries, vanilla tafetta ribbon, jumbo eyelets, snail, pretties brads, designer series paper
(Note the original pouch was 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" and the pencil marks were 5" each side)
Lay the paper on your cutter, and make sure the little pencil marks are in the groove of the cutter, so you can score by connecting the pencil marks, please be careful and score lightly so you don't tear the designer series paper (dsp)
Lay the strip down on the table and lay the pointy piece with the snail on it over top the strip, lining up the little scallops so they are even and making sure the tip starts at a full scallop. You can trim it later, anything that hangs over. Repeat with the other side.
This is what it looks like from the back.
Fold the little pointed piece back where it belongs, and using your crop-a-dile punch a hole with the big hole punch on each side of the flap, keeping in mind to leave room for your jumbo eyelets to go in.
I want you to tie the ribbon ends coming through the front in a couple knots, this will hold the looped 20" piece into the inside to be used as the handle…believe me this will all start to make sense in 50 more steps.
Now let's accessorize…
I wanna see you do some of these with different papers, how bout hanging one on each persons chair at Thanksgiving. Or how adorable will they be with Halloween paper as office gifties?
Thanks to Betty and Jane for making me do the tutorial.
Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
