Razzleberry pouch

Last night was the My Sweet Pea class – can’t tell you how it went as I’m typing this on Monday afternoon. Sorry to spoil the illusion!

This was one of our projects. I thought it was time everyone got their hands on gorgeous Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ink... not to mention that beautiful polka dot ribbon!

You don’t need a template to make these, honest – just wing it! This is a 9cm x 21cm of Rich Razzleberry, so you can get three from a sheet of A4. Measure 9.5cm from each end and score along the width. Fold and you have the beginnings of a little pouch.

To make the handle, punch a 1 ¼” circle from Old Olive cardstock, leaving plenty of room around it. Put the punched circle to one side and then put the piece with the hole in into a 1 ¾” circle punch. Line it up by eye and punch again.  You can use the Old Olive circle that you put to one side to line up on the Rich Razzleberry pouch, so that you can punch a semi-circle in the centre of the top edge. Repeat on the other side, then stick the Old Olive ring down using the Two-Way glue pen.

The flowers were inspired by a card by Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator called Elaine.
