Please Welcome My Guest - Gina

Every now and then you get to meet another blogger/ thrifter in person.  I have been lucky to meet up with my buddy Gina from Stampin With Gina not once but twice!  Gina has been kind enough to help with a guest post while we are moving this month.   Please give Gina a warm Kathe With An E welcome!  

Thank you to Kathe for letting me share my love of papercrafting with her readers. I hope she is having a fun, new adventure with minimal stress as the move into their new home. I'm excited to share this little project with you today. With minimal supplies, you can make this cute pouch to put little goodies or a small gift in. All the supplies I have used here are from Stampin' Up! however, you can use substitutes. Here's what you will need:

  • One sheet of 12"x12" Designer Series Paper (or any scrapbook paper) Cardstock is too thick to use. I used a piece from the This n That DSP.
  • Sticky strip
  • Washi tape (This n That washi tape)
  • Mini Kit Kats
These are additional options that I used:
  • Versamark ink pad
  • Pewter embossing powder
  • Heat tool
  • Gorgeous Grunge stamp set
  • Scallop punch
  • Tangerine Tango cardstock
  • Large pearl
I started this project by stamping the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Versamark on the Designer Series Paper (DSP), and then sprinkling Pewter embossing powder on the stamped area, flicking off the excess and heat setting with the heat tool.
Next, I put stick strip on the "wrong" side of the paper along one side. Then roll the paper into a cone-shape. I shaped the paper before I took the red backing off the sticky strip so that I wouldn't get it stuck somewhere I didn't want it to go. Once you get the cone formed, pull the red backing off the sticky strip and adhere creating a cone shape. You map have to use the tip of scissors or a bone folder inside to help put pressure on the sticky strip to make it adhere to the paper.

Add your goodies to the  inside.
Fold over the flap and secure with a piece of coordinating Washi Tape. Stampinwithgina-TreatTriangle9
Embellish by making a cute little flower from the scallop punches, crinkling them up, adhering them together, and adding a large pearl in the middle. Stampinwithgina-TreatTriangle10 Stampinwithgina-TreatTriangle11

You can make various sizes of these fun pouches, just cut your paper square (like 8"x8"). These would make great treat packs for those special trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood. Now give it to that special someone to brighten their day.
