Here is a cute little pouch I made up. I wanted something to put some cards in, and I think this works great! It uses one 12"x12" sheet of double-sided paper...
First, fold in half diagonally...
Open again, then fold the sides in about 5.5" (each side). The corners should be on the fold line.
Create a "W" fold in the center, about 3/4" deep. (I know it's an "M" in the photo, but standing up, it's a "W".)
Bring corners together, and punch with your choice of punch. Here, I used Stampin' Up!'s Slot Punch. Put a loop of ribbon through the hole, and slip ends through the loop.
Here's the complete pouch, sans cards! Use the ribbon to tie a bow or make a hanger!

Dear Elissa,
I am hoping you will SEE this comment - I used your idea but did not know it was YOUR IDEA....(told SU that I had been making an adorable pouch for a while that I saw on someone's blog(not yours) a long time ago and I didn't know who the original idea came from and could I use the idea and they said yes.....so I did. They posted it online as ideas for the new colors...and someone went on and said they wanted to give credit where credit was due and gave the link to your blog,,,,(which I am grateful to have!!) BUT I wanted to apologize to you and say it was not my intention to steal your idea and not give you credit - I just had no idea where it came from originally. Please forgive me. You can email me at kbarber3@woh.rr.com - or visit my blog and leave a comment at www.karenbarberstamps.blogspot.com. And all credit to you - your idea rocks and I have used it over and over and over again at stamp camps, etc!! Please forgive me for my unintentional blunder. Sincerely, Karen Barber
