Treat Pouch Challenge


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

After a brief hiatus, Pam and I are back! For this challenge, we thought we'd put something out there that everyone can make - whether you have cardmaking supplies or not.

This great treat pouch can be made with designer paper, cardstock, construction paper or just plain old copy paper (which I'm sure you'll dress up a bit).

For my sample this week, I used designer paper and started with a 6x6 square. This is very important, you MUST start with a square piece of paper. I dressed it up with some cardstock layered inside and matching embellishments.

When putting this post together, I tried to give you a great template and then remembered that I'd received many comments on how actually seeing it is better so I decided to do a "video template" for this challenge. Check it out!





Try this out and start with any size square you want! Just make one and come back with a link to your blog by Tuesday, Jan 13th at midnight MST.

Hi
I've made a little video on the same fold for the treatpouch (I've called it a diaperfold on the video-that's a name of it I've heard before), where I show a way to get the two sides/sharp points to fold perfectly and evenly every time. Check it out,- it may help you along the way =)

Hello Ladies,

I have been checking out your challenge site for awhile and have been in just AWE of your fantastic creativity! Carrie - your video was so clear and you made it seem so easy - that I had to try - and I am so glad that I did! Thank you Ladies! I had a lot of fun! You can find my treat pouch HERE.

Hi

I know I'm too late to enter, but I just wanted to say that I had SO much fun with this, I've been telling everyone about it! Thanks for the inspiration. My friend was over the moon with her gift and card. Here is my version!
