What’s in Your “Pouch”

Something a little different but so much fun to make … I saw one of these cute  little “pouches’ a couple of days ago &  just had to give it a try. The 1st one turned out horrible as I didn’t get it folded correctly & it was all tilted off to the side like the leaning tower of Pisa. But I tried again & the next one was a little better but practice makes perfect & I was happier with the way this one turned out.  Once I got it figured out it took me about 5 minutes to make. You could fill them with a few  little items that would make make someone smile … I popped several Copic markers in this one along with a couple of Prisma pencils, a pair of small scissors & a new type of adhesive dot dispenser my daughter Theresa gave me when I was visiting her in Alabama.  Works like a charm !!! Thanks Theresa !!!

I used some double sided Stampin Up paper &  just did a couple of folds, no glue &  it was done.  Had a pretty little flower I had laying on my craft table that I had made from a die & added a tiny little butterfly &  it was done.

Here’s another one I made  in a flash to stick in a package with a few of my favorite recipe cards in it … Put a little Chef Edwin on it & it was done … Nothing fancy but I think they will be fun to add to a package for a friend or child. I’m going to make some more with treats for the kids … think they might enjoy them … I found this cute little folded pouch on Irene’s blog so am giving her credit for it.  Go check out the adorable one she made.

Poor Edwin looks like he’s floating. Next time I’ll sit him on a cupcake or at least give the poor little dear a chair …

Have a great day & thanks for taking time to stop by my little corner of the world.

Hugs, Janie
