Flashback Gusseted Pouch

Today I want to share some special swaps that I made for convention.  I always do up some swaps for general swapping and then a few special ones for my good friends!


While surfing Pinterest one evening, I came across the cutest little gusseted pouches made by Diane Barnes over at Color Me Happy!  She's a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Australia!  I followed her basic instructions pretty closely and only made one change.  Here's what I came up with.


I love how they turned out!  I used the Flashback DSP again for these (I'm loving this DSP....the colors, the designs...I just love it!). 

Here's some basic measurements and instructions:
  • start with a 6x6 piece of DSP
  • line it up at 2 1/4", punch and score (on the envelope punch board)
  • line it up at 3 1/4", punch and score
  • turn the DSP 90 degrees, line up the first score line with the guide, punch and score
  • line up the second score line with the guide, punch (don't score)
  • turn the DSP 90 degrees, line up at 2 1/4", punch and score
  • line it up at 3 1/2", punch and score
  • turn the DSP 90 degrees, line up the first score line with the guide, punch and score
  • line up the second score line with the guide, punch (don't score)
You then fold it up and embellish.  I have a video for you to follow too with all the little extras I did.  Before I show you that, let me show you what I put in them!


Each pouch has 2 mint patties which I prettied up with some punched cardstock and DSP.  So cute!

Here's the video tutorial.



For the month of July, Designer Paper is on sale.  Buy 3, Get 1 FREE!  I used the Flashback DSP for this project, but there are so many fun options with DSP this year that I'm sure you will have no problem choosing 4...or 8, or 12!!!!!  Head on over to my online store and order some DSP today.  Don't forget to use the hostess code CZKJ2ZAD so you can be entered to win some washi tape!

Have an inspired day!
