Gift pouch for Christmas


If you held a party in October or November, you’ll have had one of these with a little stamping gift inside. Hope you liked it!

It’s a very simple pouch, which you can make in any size to suit any small gift. Just make sure the base is a reasonable width so that it will stand up. You can't see very well from this dark picture, but from the side it looks like a triangle, with open sides. So really very easy. 

I decorated mine with Love Letter paper. Aren’t those polka dots gorgeous?

I stamped the stocking from Gifted on some Very Vanilla cardstock, then again in Old Olive on a scrap, which I cut out. (I cut the stocking out at home before the  parties – I didn’t want all those eager stampers seeing the look of horror on my face when I cut one in half!).

Stamps: Gifted
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Paper: Love Letter
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon – Old Olive, Corner Rounder

  1. Those are gorgeous pouches. I'd be more than happy with something like that under the tree from Santa.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
