Match-Book treat pouch

Hello, hope you are all enjoying the gorgeous summer weather!  Today I have a matchbook treat pouch to share with you - I have made a few of these for my grandson to give to his teachers at the end of term.  It’s been filled with chocolates – yum!
treat-pouch-11

I have used Willow from the new Fun in the Sun summer kit, the Lazy summer days sentiment is also from the kit.  I have teamed it up with MME papers.  So to get started you will need:
12 x 12 or A4 cardstock, plus scraps for matting and layering
A DL cellophane card bag
Ribbon
Strong double sided tape
A border punch
Stamped and coloured image of your choice
Sweets, etc to fill

treat-pouch-1
Trim your card to 5 x 12” (or if using A4 this will be slightly shorter than 12” – this is okay as you add a punched border to lengthen and strengthen the flap).  Score at 5”, %.5”, 5” and 11”
treat-pouch-2
Mountain fold the 5” and 6” score lines and valley fold the 5.5” and 11” score lines
treat-pouch-3
Trim a scrap of card to 2” x 5” and score in half at 1”.  Punch a second scrap and trim to 5” by approx 1”.
treat-pouch-4
Trim the cellophane back to around 3.5” and apply strong tape to front and back of bag at the top.  Apply tape to the piece of card you have scored (above).
treat-pouch-5
Fill the bag (but don’t be a piggy like me and overfill) with your choice of filling, remove the tape on the cellophane bag (one side) and the card and attach, do the same with the other side to make a sealed bag.
treat-pouch-6
Attach the treat bag to the inside back part of the pouch.  Adhere the punched strop tot he top flap and tie a ribbon around, lining up with the fold of the flap.
treat-pouch-7
Apply dimensionals to the back of the image – make sure you leave the top inch free of the tape so the flap can fit behind.

And there you have it, a really quick and economical present for someone.
