More Amore pouch



This was another of the shoebox swaps we did in the hotel room at Telford the other week. This one was provided by Alison or Donna… or a combination of both, I never did work it out!

It uses the retiring Two Tags die. I was just about to type “get it while you can” but I thought I’d better check the up-to-date retiring accessories list and, sadly, it’s already out of stock. This is why you should absolutely not delay with your orders during retiring month. I’ve had to disappoint a few people this week, sadly.

So, assuming you already have the Two Tags die, you could make this with any Designer Series Paper – you just fold it over at its crease and you have a cute little pouch. I’ve had so much mileage out of this die and I’ll be sad to see it go.

Here we’ve used More Amore DSP from the Spring/Summer catty – this paper will no longer be available after 30th June, so get that while you can! It’s wrapped up with Pool Party ruffled ribbon – this will be retiring, too.

Topping it all off is a cute (but now a little squashed) creped filter paper flower. This was made by punching several scallop circles in two different sizes, joining them with a brad, scrunching them up and dipping in a solution of alcohol coloured with a few drops of ink. Effective, eh?

Cardstock: Gumball Green textured (is that even possible?)
Paper: More Amore, Creped Filter Paper
Accessories: Pool Party ruffled ribbon, Two Tags Die, Scallop Circle Punches, that leaf die whose name I can’t remember

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