Joy to the World

Eek! It’s October – how did that happen? The nights are already drawing in and the clocks will change soon also. Most would see that as a negative, but I absolutely love it. I love the run up to the events during this time of year – Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas etc. So I thought it was time I cracked out the foil and make some full blown Christmas projects.

Today’s is a slimline pocket pouch, a great size for small bags of sweeties or perhaps small chocs such as Green & Blacks. Ideal for table favours, part of a hamper treat selection or in the stocking on Christmas Eve.

The word ‘joy’ on the front is made from the dies of the same name using two different foils. The dies come with three separate segments to make up the wording, however I chose to only use two for this project.

And of course, I had to break out the Wonder of a Season ribbon combo and do the double ribbon bow tie that I previewed when I first got my initial order from the Autumn / Winter catalogue.

What do you think would fit nicely into this pouch?

Best Wishes,
