Tree Tags in Pouch

Plaid tags and pouch

This was a project that I did for my last class. I was having a difficult time with my mental health and hadn’t been doing much crafting, so wasn’t at my best. However, it proved to be one of the classes favourite projects I’ve done, which gave me a boost 🙂

Pouch base – Whisper White Cardstock 7″ x 3″
Pouch layers – DSP 3 7/8″ x 2 3/4″
DSP 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
Tags – six pieces of Whisper White Cardstock 3 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
Designer Series Paper 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 2 1/2 x 1 1/4″

Punch the end of the Pouch Base with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. Cut off the excess card on either side of the tag.

Last weekend was the Pootler’s annual team retreat. We went up to Birmingham.  On the Friday evening, those that were silver and above got to go for drinks and canapes with the Team Leader Sam Hammond Donald (Pootles). We also received a Frame with a motivational message.  Saturday and Sunday were spent crafting and spending time with fellow demonstrators which was great fun. On the Saturday we did a swap of projects, this project was mine and I received some gorgeous swaps from the other team members.
