12 Days of Embellished Ornaments: #8

   #8 of my 12 ideas using the Stampin’ Up ornament bundle from the Holiday catalog. I went outside of the card box today to show you a gift pouch that could hold a card, a gift card or other flat gifts like candy bars, maybe?

This measures about 5″ wide by 6-1/2″ tall when assembled.  I made the ornament on a loop that just hangs on the button and can come off to be used as a tag or hang on the tree.  I sandwiched the gold cord in between the 2 layers of the ornament.

The ornament is Cherry Cobbler and a layer of gold glimmer paper behind it.  It is sparkly and glittery!

Here is the back side:

Ok, let’s get started!  First, you can make this using the gift bag punch board or other punch boards or boxes.  I kept it simple for anyone who doesn’t have fancy tools to make the pouch.

Old Olive card stock is 8″ tall by 10″ wide. In landscape position, score from the left side at 1/2″ and again at 5-1/4″.  Turn to portrait position and score at 1-1/2″ from the left edge.

(yours won’t have the writing on it – just marked it up so you can see it better)

To make it easier to fold, I trim off one of the bottom panels and angle cut the edges left.

Add your sticky strip or tear tape along the 1/2″ side flap.  Before you close the pouch, you want to create a tab area:

I used the SU Wide oval punch, 1/2 way down.

Close the side flap, then the bottom flap.

The pouch flap is made from the largest of the Ovals collection framelits.  It has a scallop on just this one oval.  The DSP is about 5″ x 6″ to cut the oval.   Fold in 1/2 and add adhesive to just one 1/2 of the oval:

Adhere to back of pouch.  Next I added a Cherry Cobbler 1-1/4″ scallop circle, a 1″ gold glimmer circle and a button.  The loop from the ornament goes over the button:

Here are my basic supplies for ordering. 

BY THE WAY,  a big thank you to those placing orders with me!   SU is my full time gig and orders are very appreciated.   A few of you placed a No Contact Order, which means I can’t thank you properly!  I like to send thank you goodies or give updates on your order if there is an issue but I won’t know who it is if you checked No Contact.  So if you placed an order online recently, email me if you’d like contact:) 


Thank you for following along!

    Very pretty. Good idea to have the ornament hang loose for removal.

    Really? Thanks! I do like the gold glimmer behind it and the way it can be used as a tag.
