Well today is a rare day – two posts in one day! After you’re done checking out my new tutorial, please be sure to check out my Featured Stampin’ Up! Artist of the week below, and take a minute to visit her blog.
Today’s tutorial is for an Easter Door Hanger Treat Pouch. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering – is this the only Easter stamp set she has to use? Well….actually yes. It’s a good thing I love this set, and I certainly hope you do too considering how much of it you’ve seen. As to the colors – look familiar? No, I’m not stuck in a color rut, it just so happens that I absolutely LOVE those colors together for Easter projects, so please bear with me as you’ll probably be seeing them again over the next few days.
When I was trying to figure out what to do for today’s tutorial, I thought, how cute would it be to create a pouch that would hand from a door knob? What better way to surprise your kids (both little and big – i.e. hubby), and start the Easter egg hunt off with, than an Easter treat hanging from their door knob? And who says it has to be candy? You could package up some little dollar store treats such as a little notebook, a pen, some stickers, hair accessories (for a girl), small toys, etc. The pouch is certainly big enough to hold them. The dimensions of the "pouch" alone are 3 1/4" high, 3 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" deep.
Although Door Knob pouches are nothing new, I wanted something that was a little bigger than what’s out there right now, and something that did NOT involve printing and cutting out a template. You can see a step-by-step tutorial here, and you can download a template HERE. Remember, the template is a visual guide only, it is not meant to be printed out onto the CS and cut.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s tutorial. Tuesday’s tutorial will most likely be appearing in the late afternoon sometime as I have a team meeting tomorrow night to get ready for and I’m out Tuesday morning.
