EPHEMERA POUCHES---with graphic 45 and knco patterned papers

i forgot i had bought this boardwalk patterned paper from graphic 45, lol. i found it hid it 
in the pile of 8 x8"s. lol.
i wanted to make some st. patrick's day treat pouches but somehow ended up like this.
WARNING: photo heavy

Ephemera Treat/Favor Pouches
2.75 by 4.25
2.75 by 4.50
2.75 by 5.25
all started with empty paper towel rolls.







the images are from graphic 45---on the boardwalk
the patterned paper is from k&co---portabello road
--some of the embellishments like the star, happy days, measure twice..., old stamp have been with me for a long while. 
the measuring tape is a border from k&co too, the staples are from tim holtz so is the ink i used to distress. 
some glitter glue from g-studio, wire from my supplies and the adhesive you use is very important. you need something like red tape or the scor tape i used on these.
i also stitched the bottom of the pouches using a decorative stitch. 

oh!... and i used the all night media liquid embossing on the star and the  measure twice embellishment and..... i made the accordion flower 3/4 of an inch and it gave me a bit of hard time...grr! :P and..that tape you see is from my first aid kit---i distressed it very well if you ask me, hehe

i think i like them a lot.

---thanks for stopping by--
