Cherry-O Party Favor

I am part of an artwork exchange hosted by my second upline, Diana.  Each Idea Book period, we make 20 of the same items and in exchange, we get back an entire display board of artwork using the new papers, stamps, and accessories from the latest Idea Book.  This month, I had to use the Cherry-O papers and coordinating stamps/accessories, as well as make a bag/box/topper.

I opted to make this diaper fold origami pouch. My original idea was to add a bag of Black Cherry Tea, but I could only find that in a variety pack and wasn't about to purchase enough boxes to come up with 20 tea bags. So, I opted to use the drink mix pouches that you can add to a bottle of water.

The directions for the pouch can be found on Splitcoast Stampers.  I used a 9x9 square to make my pouch. You can make small ones to add to card fronts and scrapbook pages, or large ones to fill with special treats. You can even use it to house an invitation or gift card! The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Stamps: Tasty Treats
Inks: Tulip
Accessories: Cranberry Ribbon (currently discounted 29%!), Expressive Font CD Volume I, 3D Foam Tape, Glue Dots

I used a label template from my Word Perfect program to do the instructions on the tags.  The instructions are printed using the Tall Pen font from the Expressives Font CD Volume I (currently discounted 38%!) Then I just stamped the frame stamp around each set of instructions and cut them out. I added a ribbon pull using a staple, but then glue dotted the tag to the pouch so I didn't staple through the pouch.

Until next time...
