Happy St. Patrick's Day Tea Bag Pouch

Everyone is Irish on St. Patty's Day.  Here's a project to celebrate!

For my tea bag pouch, I cut the cardstock to 8" x 3".  Yours  may vary due to the size of your tea bag--adjust accordingly.  Wheel Crumb Cake cardstock in Garden Green ink using Very Vintage.  Fold in half.  Score at 1" on one end and fold over for the front flap.  Glue or staple sides together to make the pouch.  Wrap ribbon around flap.  Attach a Round Tab punch out to the tea bag.  The flower stamp is from Vintage Vogue and punched out with the 1" Circle.  Attach to the top of the Round Tab.  Stamp Happy St. Patrick's Day from Teenie Tiny Wishes and  cut out with the Word Window Punch.  Layer on top of a piece of cardstock punched out with the Modern Label punch before adhering to the front of your pouch. 

Make your pouch larger to add a hot cocoa packet.  This one is 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 1" on one end for the flap.  Folded and assembled exactly like the tea bag version.  If you're a little rententive like I am, buy your  hot cocoa packets before you decide on the color scheme for your pouch.  I coordinated my colors around the colors that were on the outide of the packets. 

Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
