Yesterday I shared a duo of Valentine candy holders I designed for this week’s challenge at The Paper Players. If you weren’t here yesterday, here’s what you missed:
I guess I shouldn’t say you missed it because now you’ve seen it, so you haven’t really missed anything. You’re all up-to-date now. Yipee! Yesterday I shared some specifics about the gift box and coordinating tag. The box is filled with cinnamon heart candies – just wait until you see what’s in the little pouch that’s leaning against the box – that is the focus of today’s post. I’m going to show you what’s on the inside of the pouch and give you a quick tutorial on how to make it. Woo hoo!
Before I move on to the tutorial, I want to share some information about the front of the pouch. I saved this tidbit of information for today’s post – although many of you already pointed it out in your kind comments yesterday. The image from this stamp set has a little moon around which the rocket has traveled. The image is a little less than 1″ in diameter. I ran a piece of Crumb Cake card stock through my Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available during this year’s Sale-a-Bration) and punched it with a 1″ Circle punch. I used the inverted side of the image to give the impression of the craters of the moon.
Tutorial for the Candy Gift Pouch
Before I offer a quick tutorial on this easy pouch, I suppose I should show you the inside:
What’s that inside? Ooooh! Chocolate!
Now that you’ve seen the inside, do you have any ideas about how this was constructed? When I stamped for a brief spell a couple of years ago, we made lots of these and filled them with little bags of Sweet Hearts. It was fun to make them again. Here’s how you do it:
- Fold an envelope in half such that the flap of the envelope is on the inside of the fold.
- Unfold the envelope and snip the flap of the envelope at the fold.
- Tuck the right-side flap into the envelope.
- Lick and stick the left-side flap of the envelope.
- Decorate the envelope, stuff it with candy and tie it shut with ribbon.
How sweet is that?!?
