Today’s tutorial is a hot chocolate pouch. I got this idea from Sam over at pootles papercraft, I think it’s a great idea and a nice little gift for someone.
This pouch is so easy to make and don’t we love a project that is easy to do.
I used love blossoms designer series paper which you will find in the stampin up clearance rack, I also used balloon celebration stamp set for the sentiment.
So to make this pouch you need to cut your paper down to
5 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ (13.3cm x 11.4cm)
Get your bonefolder and run it along the paper to loosen the fibres in the paper, this will help to wrap around the hot chocolate easier.
Add some double sided tape to one edge of paper on the 4 1/2″ (11.4cm) side
Lay your chocolate on the paper and start wrapping the paper around it and stick the paper together to form the pouch.
Take the chocolate out, pinch the bottom of the pouch and staple it together, then pinch the top of the pouch and punch a hole, get some whisper white ribbon, cut a good length of the roll, Thread one end of the ribbon thru the holes & get your chocolate and put in back in the pouch and the chocolate will push the ribbon to the bottom of pouch, and finally tie the ribbon in a knot.
And to get the chocolate out just pull the ribbon knot and the ribbon pulls the chocolate out.
Now to decorate
I inked up the sentiment ‘hot chocolate’ in Sahara sand ink and stamped it on to whisper white Cardstock and cut the sentiment out with a circle die from the layering circles thinlets. I also distressed the circle in Sahara sand ink as well.
I cut a scallop circle in Sahara sand Cardstock from layering circles thinlets.
Adhere the circle and scallop circle together.
To make the flags
Cut 3 strips out of whisper white Cardstock, patterned paper, Sahara sand Cardstock, measuring 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ (0.6cm x 8.8cm) and cut flag shapes on one end of the 3 strips, adhere them together at a angle and add to the front of pouch and add the sentiment.
And wow love love love them.
