Default How to on 6x6 Pouches

Have you seen the 6x6 Pouches in the gallery -

Supplies Needed:
1 Piece of Cardstock (cut 6 wide by approx 8-11 long the length will depend on what you want to do with the pouch flap)
1 Piece of Cardstock optional (cut 6 x6 to stamp on and place inside the protector)
6x6 Page Protector (I think SU ones work well they are strong but any vendor 6x6 works)
Other optional supplies : you can use Velcro to close the pouches, some use ribbon with hodge podge, some tie the pouch with a ribbon try different variations. Check out the links to samples below the directions.

Directions:
Take the 6x6 page and cut the ring end off but leave the sealed edges on it. Cut your cardstock to 8 1/4 inches long by 6 1/2 inches wide (some people use different measurements but I found this is what I liked best. Fold over the paper at the 6 line leaving a 2 inch flap coming over. There are several things to do with your flap.. take a corner punch and round the edges then use velcro and a button to fancy it up, punch a hole or a slit and run ribbon, twine etc thru and around to hold the flap down. Tear the edge for a different look, make a diagonal flap etc.
Stamp the paper in areas that will be visible on the pouch, I do both sides as depending on how the pouches sit in there you can see the stamped design thru. (or you can use the extra 6x6 piece in a different color and stamp place inside the pouch for a different look). I use the sticky tape to stick the 6x6 pouch to the cardstock, make sure the opening is at the top where the flap will come down. Fix your flap to how you like and add embellishments.
Recently I was a hostess of a 6x6 pouch swap the swapees and I made 2 coordinating cards to go in each pouch they are great to give as gifts, we did a baby group, floral groups and a thank you group. Check out some of the pouches from that swap in my gallery below .. it was one of the most successful swaps I have ever done so much that I was convinced to do another one and most of the 1st swap participants want in on it. Want to get some new ideas then think about joining the swap.. click on the link below!

Join the Gift Pouches Swap - http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...d.php?t=118691

Check out the various pouches you can make: (Some pictures are a tad blurry and dont do the pouches justice due to my dial up I have to reduce the quality)

This one is one of my fav ones I did for this swap in the thank you category I wasnt sure about it at first but it all came together beautifully.

Default Too Cute!!

I just love this site!!! I can always find interesting and unusual projects. These pouches are adorable. Thanks for the instructions. I sent you a private email asking for the instructions for the mini "thank you" notes that you mentioned in your post, or a link to find a picture. I think they would be great to enclose in the pouch. Thanks again for sharing.

Lisa - Great "resource" page! I love all the links! I love it when there are links attached - they are usually ones that I have missed from the main gallery!

Default O.K. had to try one.

Here's my first attempt at a gift pouch. My granddaughter's birthday is right around the corner and I wanted to do something different. I love the pouch, but I'm stuck on what to put in it. Jessie will be 10. Any ideas?
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...4&ppuser=41517 Also I wanted to mention a cool new set of stamps I found. They're by Hero Arts. They're ribbon stamps. I saw an artical in the latest Creating Keepsake magazine (by Tim Holtz) and thought I give them a try. Boy, I love them. Today I couldn't find any ribbon to match the slide mounts so I just stamped on the color paper with versa mark ink and cut out the ribbon and wow a perfect match. Here's a link to the stamp if you want to see them. http://www.heroarts.com/products/pro...992&subCat=E02

How bought a mini brag book - they had some at target (in their $1 section) that I think would fit inside and cover the front with cs to match the pouch.... you could do a bookmark if she likes to read. Or how bout making a gift card/cert cover and right now McDees has those coupon books for kids to get free fries etc for $1.25 each

Very nice pouches. Does anyone have a template for the calendar that is included in the pouch in this gallery? http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=39076 I would love to have a copy if there is one out there.
