Hot Cocoa Treat Pouch and 3 x 3 Card Pouch - Totally Treats Tuesday

Good Morning.  Today I made two pouches to put some treats or gifts in.  It is Totally Treats Tuesday at My Creative Time so the first one is a "treat".
This pouch holds a hot cocoa packet in one side and marshmallows and a candy cane in the other.

 I used the Stitched Oval die to cut our the handles.  I stamped the sentiment on one of the pieces from the handle cut outs.

The second pouch I made to hold a set of 3 x 3 note cards and envelopes.

Stitched Oval die, Scallop and Stitched Circle dies, All Around Holidays stamp set, All Around Everything Accessories stamp set, Warm Holiday Fun stamp and die set and Gift Card Sentiments stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Reflections Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad  -  Echo Park
Kris Kringle 12 x 12 paper  -  SEI
Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Corner Chomper  -  We-R-Memory Keepers
Terrifically Tacky Tape
Peeled Paint and Yellow Stickles
I used a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers which you can see here.  Below is my own version with the measurements I used.
 I started with a piece of card stock 11" by 4".  I scored it at 5" and 6".
I used the Stitched Oval die to cut out the handles on the top.
For the inside pockets I started with 2 pieces cut at 4 3/4" by 2 3/4"
Score one of the long sides and both short sides at 1/4" and 1/2"
 Cut the small squares off the sides as shown above.
Attached strong tape to outside edges along the 3 scored sides.
Fold and attach to inside as shown below.
Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you found this post useful, have a great day!

"Girls just want to have fun" and that's exactly what we all do with Miss Emma's goodies.
