Default TLC152 - Pixie Pouch

It’s my pleasure to guest host this week’s Try a New Technique Challenge. This is my first time hosting a challenge and I’m quite excited!


Since preparations for Valentine’s Day seem to be in full swing, I thought it would be fun to try another cute project – Pixie Pouches, from a VSN06 challenge presented by Anita and hosted by Joni Field (jstarbright). (Thanks, Joni!) They’re easy to make and just the right size for a little goodie for your sweetheart, friend, co-worker or a teacher. Let’s see what fabulous ideas you have, and what you decide to fill your pouches with (candy bars, lollipops, cocoa, pixie stix, pencils, pens, etc!)


Here are Anita’s directions from the VSN challenge in Nov. ‘06. (I made my pouch a little wider (8”) than Joni and Anita's samples to accommodate the width of the cocoa packet and added brads at the edge of the pocket top for reinforcement):

*The dimensions are:
• One 7 x 7 inch piece of cardstock (think festive) [or 7 x8 inch piece for wendella247’s]
• Fold this in half so it now measures 7” high x 3˝” wide (or 7” high x 4” wide for wendella247’s].
• Open it up again, on the seam cut down 1˝ inches, score across to the cut line, and fold down. This becomes your front flap for the pouch (See example if I have confused you: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/402788?cat=500&ppuser=41472)
• I used red line Sticky tape for my remaining 2 seams.
_________________

When you upload, please put TLC152 in the keyword section, and then post a link to your card here in this thread so we can all see your creations.

TLC152 gallery is located here.


Examples:

Anita’s sample.


For other ideas (from VSN06 challenge).

Thanks for playing and have fun!

You're very welcome! Once ya get on a roll....it's hard to STOP, huh?

I wasn't able to participate in the VSN challenges, so it worked out that I had time to host this one. Looking forward to seeing your creation!

Default I stole the wallpaper!!!

I was looking at the sample and though this would make a cute container for a small Thank you or birthday gift as well as for candy or Hot Chocolate.
Thanks for the great sample and for hosting this challenge.

I just uploaded my first TLC challenge card. I'm still trying to figure out how all of this works. I can successfully load to my gallery but do NOT know how to get cards linked and put them in this reply. Is there another thread I can read to show me how to do that ??!!!
Thanks so much. I LOVE this little pouch. TFS
