Halloween Fun Size Candy Bar Pouch

Hello all,
Today I have another Halloween Candy Pouch for you.
These are very quick and easy to make. Especially for a last minute gift.
I Used the Toil and Trouble DSP and the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set for the sentiments.
They each use a 4" x 6" piece of DSP. You can get 6 pouches out of a 12" x 12" Sheet of DSP.
I like how they each hold one Fun Size candy bar and are very inexpensive to make.

I used the Cat Punch for my Black Cat on this one.

This one I used the Spooky Sweets Stamp Set

I made this one to put with my table setting at Thanksgiving.

I will give these out at Halloween to the Trick or Treaters.

I also made some for my grandsons class.
I used the Spooky Bats Punch for my bat.

Directions to make the pouch:
4" x 6" DSP, score the long side at 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 2 3/4", 4 1/2" 5". 5 1/2"
then score the short side at 1/2" ( make sure your design is going the right direction) where you put the score line will be the bottom of the pouch.
Cut off the side tabs except the long one. See picture below.
Fold the score lines using the mountain and valley folds.
Add tear and tape to the outside long tab and on the inside of the short tab. Secure your pouch
Decorate using the Scalloped circle framelit and the stitched circle framelit.
I used a small piece of ribbon, tied it in a knot and secured it with a glue dot.

Reminder my All Occasion Card Class is this Thursday, email me at if you'd like to attend.

My perk of the month when you use host code TRPC34UF.

Video 3x3 card box

Did you see the video I made for these cute boxes that hold 3x3 cards?
View the video here.

Here are the ones I made for my Team Swap.

This month I had to make 12 swaps. 

They are, all ready to go to Texas.

I fussy cut all of the bows for the front of the box and attached it with dimensionals.
It gives it that extra pop.

These are the cards I made to go inside.

I also decorated the envelopes, some on the front and some on the back.

Some of the other boxes I made using the Wishing You Well Stamp Set

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the video and make some of these boxes.

3" x 3" Card Box

Hello everyone,
I have a video for you today.
I am making this Mini Box that holds 3"x 3" cards and envelopes. The box can fold up and fit into a card envelope so you can send it in the mail.
I used the Wishing You Well Stamp Set. That I love, it's a Distinktive stamp set that adds monochromatic dimension and artistic flare to your stamping. Just look at the bow!
These are the 3 that I made.

This one I used Call Me Clover and the Animal Expedition DSP.

I used Pacific Point and Mango Melody for this one. Instead of using DSP. 
I stamped the flowers in Mango Melody on the cardstock.

I used Shaded Spruce and the All Is Bright DSP. I added the Red Rhinestones for that extra bling.

View the video here. Hope you like this project and please feel free to share and Follow my Blog.
