This little project was actually inspired by my husband, he has often joked about us not buying gifts but making promises and requests to each other. His favourite request being a home cooked roast lamb dinner, this happens very rarely as I hate the smell of cooking lamb.
Anyway I decided to produce something I could write these little promises on as a gift for Valentine’s Day. This little pouch was very quick to make and could be embellished any way you like.
To start with take a piece of any dsp that measures 6″ by 3″ and score on the long side at 1/2″, 3″ and 5 1/2″.
Along the short side score at 2″, burnish all score lines with a bone folder. Next cut away the two small rectangle sections at the bottom ( as shown below) and then cut the edges on a diagonal up to the 2″ score line.
Fold in the two 1/2″ flaps at the sides and then fold up the bottom section to form the folder part of the pouch. Secure with a little glue on the edge of the diagonal lines, I used a very small amount of Snail adhesive.
Next fold in half and your pouch is ready to decorate. I cut the shapes below from the Love Notes Dies and the Decorative label punch.
The decorative label punch was used to decorate the front of the pouch as was used to hold the black bakers twine in place. The small heart was used on the back again to hold the twine in place. The little love notes were decorated with a variety of images from the Sealed With Love set all ready for me to write my promises on for my husband, these just then slip inside the pouch and it can be tied shut with the bakers twine.
Above you can see the inside of the pouch, hope you enjoyed this project and hope you join me again tomorrow for another card using the Sealed With Love stamp set.
