Pouch box with tag

final-pouch.jpgI am having such a great time with the Nestabilities dies.  I did not get into the big punch craze a while back, mostly because of space, but cost was also a big consideration.  With the Nestabilities, space is no longer an issue, and for the price you get so many dies for your money, it was a deal I could not pass up.  This pouch box uses the circle dies – can you tell how I made the tag? 


pouchbox001.jpg The large red scalloped and the white circle were straight die cuts. 





pouchbox004.jpg The green tag was created by folding a piece of green cardstock in half, then placing the die on the paper, with a small section of the die off the top – not touching the paper.  This section does not get cut and allows the fold of the tag to remain intact.

Now for that little red scalloped punch out that is on top of the white stamped circle…Can you tell how I made it?


I took a scalloped circle die, then placed a smaller regular circle die inside it.  You will need to use the dies that fit inside, yet still allow both cutting surfaces to cut through.  I used re-positionable tape to hold it onto the cardstock, and it worked great!


 I used my cuttlebug for all these cuts – nestabilites work just fine in the bug, as long as you determine the appropriate sandwich.

The ribbon I found at Big Lots, it their dollar bin – 5 yards for $1!!  The white cardstock is 110lb. weight from Office Depot – it’s a great value, stamps well and the heavier weight is great for the pouch box.  The little bow is just a piece of the ribbon tied with a gold cord.

“Merry Merry” is from the O Christmas Tree set at Flourishes.
