Hello friends, and a special welcome to any new visitors joining from the CardMaker Magazine/Webster's Pages blog hop. So glad you stopped by! Be sure to check out the blogs and then visit the Webster's Pages site where they are hosting an awesome giveaway.
For my project, I am using the Family Traditions collection. These colors remind me of my grandmother's kitchen with its deep orange countertops, brown carpeting, and mustard yellow appliances (long live the 70's) - only in a way that is totally fresh and updated for today with the addition of lime green and aqua.
I created a treat pouch to go along with the card using a large glassine envelope. Just about anything tastes better wrapped up in a fun container, don't you think?
The treat pouch is wrapped up with paper that reminds me of a modern quilt with its patchwork of triangle shapes.
To create the wrapper, after cutting the paper to fit the glassine envelope and adding a coordinating pattern along the top and bottom edges, I scored and folded the sides and the adhered the paper to the envelope only in the center.
Double-sided tape was added along one edge of the back of the paper in order to allow the wrapper to be closed once the treats were placed inside. This lets you account for the bulk of whatever you put in the pouch (I placed a tape runner inside just to give you an idea... in hindsight, I should have used this as an excuse to buy a bag of Reese's cups and used those instead... just for photography purposes, of course.)
This also allowed the messy ends of the trim to be tucked inside and secured with tape. The slit was made with a craft knife.
