...Wow, I have had so many lovely comments and emails about how to make my latest invention... the T'Pouch... so... here I am with some piccies and the measurements etc. If you haven't heard of the T'Pouch... here's a little bit of history: I love to make tags... and was getting a bit bored of just doing the old tag... so I decided to make a pouch for the tag to sit in... that way I could really go over the top and decorate that too.
The name came about after I had been discussing "what to call this here pouchy thing" with Dan... and he said... why not call it the T'Pouch! So I have! So.. on with the pics etc... Oh before I do... the T'Pouch is designed to hold a Size 8 tag... which is the size that the Sizzix Alterations Tag Die is... and also the size of the standard Ranger tags :O) Right...here we go!
Cut a piece of cardstock or double sided paper to measure 25cm x 13cm
Score at the following along the longest side:
And score along the shortest side at:
Fold along the score lines... the 1.5cm measurements will form the expanding part at the sides of the T'Pouch. The 9cm lengths are the front and back and the 1cm will form a flap for gluing the T'Pouch together. Fold along the 11cm measurement... this will form the flaps for the base.
Snip out the little extra pieces that are along the bottom of the cardstock - this will make assembling easier. All you need are the two 9cm long flaps. One will go over the top of the other to glue together.
I have marked on the template where to glue. Cut two pieces of card/paper to measure 10cm x 8cm. These will be the front and back pieces that you can ink/stamp/decorate before attaching to the T'Pouch.
And there you have it. If you do make a T'Pouch, please do let me know... I would love to see lots of little T'Pouches taking over the world (mwaha... mwhahahahaaaaa - said in Dr Evil voice) Anyways... here's the tag and T'Pouch that I have finished..
And... the tag... I am entering this into the Tag It On challenge this week which is ... RED... and I can see lots of red on this one so hopefully it is acceptable.
And finally... last week I did the Watermark Resist Technique and had some candy to win... so, I had 61 comments and Mr Random.Org chose #52 which tallies with the comment left by Craftimamma. So... thank you all for your comments... muchly appreciated... and if Craftimamma could email me her addy I will pop the card and Pad into the post! Right, enough waffling from me for a day... tomorrow is a brand new Sunday Stamper theme... please do pop back to visit... oh and there are still a few days left to enter into the Bloggy Birthday giveaways I am doing... all the deets are up there in the sidey bar... Right.. am offski... thanks for looking... TTFN
