Treat Pouch Tutorial

Hi everyone, today I have a tutorial to share with you that I first showed on the Whiff of Joy Inspirations & Tutorials blog. I'm going to explain how I make a treat pouch, they are really easy and are suitable to hold little treats, money or gift cards. So here goes....

1 piece of designer paper - it doesn't matter what size as long as it is square
Bone folder
Image and/or embellishments to decorate

Step by Step

Step 1: For my project I am using double sided DP that measures 6 x 6 inches. If you are using double sided paper, begin with the side that you want on the inside of the pouch facing upwards. Fold your paper in half diagonally from corner to corner, crease with your bone folder to get a crisp fold.

Step 2: Take the bottom right hand corner and fold it over to the middle of the opposite diagonal, crease with your bone folder once again.

Step 3: Take the bottom left hand corner and fold it over to the middle of the opposite diagonal and crease.

Step 4: Take one layer from the top and fold down to create your pouch. I usually apply a little piece of double sided tape underneath to hold it in place.

Step 5: Pop your fingers inside the pouch and with the thumb of the opposite hand create a small dip, this gives your pouch a bottom.

Step 6: Finally, decorate your treat pouch. Mine is just a small pouch so I kept embellishments to a minimum and I just used the mini version of Charlotte Kissing Pigeon. She is coloured with copics, cut with labels one nesties and added to the front of the pouch with foam pads.

Here is a picture of the pouch and matching card. Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial! Take care x
