Hi everyone, Audrey here, sharing a fun sweet treat pocket pouch project idea using Authentique's adorable Joyous holiday collection and cardstock from our fabulous product partner this week, Core'dinations.
I love pretty packages at the holidays, and I'm always looking for new and different ways to wrap up gifts. These fun pocket pouch treat holders are great for home-baked goods or sweets, or any number of small gift items.
Best thing is, you can adapt the size of the pocket to hold larger, or even smaller items easily.
Here's how to get started.
For each pouch, cut two pieces of kraft wrapping paper to the desired size. My pouches are 5" squares. Lay the two pieces together and zig zag stitch around the very outermost edges on three sides. Fill pocket with treats.
Cut a 4.5" square panel of patterned paper and layer onto a 4.75" square of Core'dination Pearlescent Cardstock. Stitch around the edges and adhere panel to the kraft pocket using strong adhesive. Clip top of pocket closed with a binder clip.
Emboss ColorCore Cardstock with a candy stripe embossing folder. Lightly sand the cardstock and swipe with white ink. Die cut or hand cut banner flags from patterned paper and the ColorCore Cardstock.
Adhere banners to the top of the pocket pouch. Wrap the top of the pocket with your favorite ribbon. Layer die cuts from the 12x12 Statements sheet and the Circles & Scallops sheet and adhere to the pocket using foam adhesive for dimension.
Add buttons and bows to finish things off.
Once you've got the technique down, you can make these fun pocket pouches in any size, for any theme or occasion! Enjoy!
