Easy Treat Pouch


These are the cutest treat pouches and each one will hold a mini chocolate bar. And read on because I have a photo pattern for you!


What makes these so easy to make is that each uses one sheet from our new Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack -- a mini book of paper where each sheet is 4-1/2" by 6-1/2".


Look at all those yummy colors!

This idea came courtesy of Stampin' Up's fun demonstrator event at the end of April to unveil the new catalog. One of the projects shown that night was this cute candy pouch which an SU concept artist dreamed up while she was at lunch playing with a paper napkin ring. A few folds here and there and when she got back to the office she transformed this idea into this cute paper pouch.

You can see how a mini size chocolate bar would fit inside -- perfect as a party treat.


Here's a look at the cute embellishment made with the stamp sets #hello (better known as hash tag hello for the twitter generation even though us older folks might call it pound-hello!) and the stamp set @so social. I loved combining the hip sayings on these -- they are a recognition that the digital age is influencing the way we communicate.


On the boy version the greeting is stamped on a piece of Helllo Honey card stock and then punched with the same 2" circle punch used to punch out the @ circle or striped circle -- so the ends of the strip match perfectly with the circle that it sits on top of.


Here's a photo pattern. With the 6-1/2" by 4-1/2" piece of Moonlight paper horizontal in the Simply Scored, score at 1", 1-1/2", 2", 4", 4-1/2" and 5". Then turn it vertial and score 1/2" from one long edge to make the bottom. The dark areas on the pattern are part you cut away.


I also trimmed the top with the little scallop rotary cutter that fits our Stampin' Up trimmer. After you score to make gussets and cut the little parts away on the bottom it looks like this -- inside view:


And the view from the outside before I adhere the back seam and fold up and adhere the bottom flap to the outside to make the pouch.


Here's the back once it's assembled.


These are quick and easy and very cute -- you could slip a little note in if you'd like or even a small sized gift card.
