Hand Stamped Sentiments #103 - Anything BUT A Card, Gift Items

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments, we are asking you lovely crafters to create anything BUT a card with this gift item challenge! 

There are so many possibilities, I went to my Pinterest boards and narrowed it down to this fun paper pouch. I took photos of each step and will explain how YOU too can create this fun little package!

start with a sheet of paper 5-1/2" X 8-1/2"
attach a piece of sticky strip along the short side, peel off red backing...

and then adhere together into a cylinder shape

pinch one side together and create a fold line/crease about 1/2"...I stuck another piece of sticky strip inside before crimping but you can add the sticky strip on the first step as well.

fill your pouch with desired goodies 

and then pinch/adhere and crimp the other side but make sure you pinch the opposite direction of the first pinch. Attach a fun tag, ribbon or other embellishment to personalize your pouch, hand to a teacher or friend and make someone's day sweeter!

Head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiment to see what wonderful gift items the design team has whipped up for you this week!

The picture tutorial I spied on Pinterest had been sewn together which would be super cute BUT I don't own a sewing machine nor do I know how to sew. You can check out that tutorial HERE.
