A quick pouch for treats, gift cards, cookies and more

 This is my team challenge this week:  make a pouch and fill it with goodies!

It's quick to make.  You make the stand and then add the front pieces to hold the treats.

Here's a short video to show you how to make it. Click here to see the video

The stand: Take a 12 x 4 piece of designer paper, score (on the long side) at 4 3/4, 9 1/2, 10 1/2, and 11 1/2. 

Fold it up and use the last 1/2" fold to attach it together.  See the photos that show how it stands up due to the folds that fold into an upside V shape.

Now attach the front pieces so it can hold your goodies

The front flaps at 2x6, and scored (on the short side) at 1 1/2.  Fold down the 1/2 flap and attach this piece to the front.  The 1/2" flap is at the bottom so it can hold treats.  I just folded this 6" piece around the front and the added adhesive to the edges. I didn't score. 

I added a flap to the front and back and my front holds my cocoa and my back holds my marshmallows in the mosaic bag with 3 x 2" of pattern paper folded in half. I added a silver plastic tasting spoon - available anywhere Amazon, $ store, Walmart, search for "tasting spoons". 

I added the greeting "you're the marshmallows in my cocoa" from the Warm Hugs stamp set, along with the silver ribbon.  I stamped in Misty Moonlight.

My paper choice was Snowflake Wonder - available and on sale this month in my online store, by clicking on my shopping cart. Don't forget the host code as I send out thank you gifts directly to you using these benefits. 

My team is creating their versions of the pouch and I'll post these ideas tomorrow.  So far I've seen pouches for Thanksgiving, for general treats, for a team event with "bling"... lots of clever ideas. 

We have a fun team and love to challenge each other (and win bling!).  If you'd like to join us, you simply choose a starter kit (you choose items worth $125 and pay $99) and that's it, no further obligations.  You can stay with us, or drop if it doesn't work.  Most of us (maybe all?) joined so we can get a 20% or 25% discount on all our Stampin Up products.  It's a great time to join and save money on your holiday crafting - and enjoy our fun team events (in person and online). Email me with questions I'm happy to answer your questions or chat about stamping or crafting!

Happy stamping, MaryKate
