More Gift Pouches

Last night was craft night and after tea and home made chocolate and raspberry zebra cake we all made these cute gift pouches.  You can find my tutorial for them here.  I decided to go with an Easter theme, these are going to be gifts for my son's teacher and classroom helpers.
Confession time........ not content with the 8x8 pack of Papermania Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection papers, I bought the double sided 12x12 pack too.  There is a single sided 12x12 pack available too, but the double sided pack is a real step up in quality, the papers are much thicker and although not cheap at £17, I think they're worth it.  I chose pretty polka dot designs for these pouches, the pastel colours make them perfect for Easter.
I added punched strips made with a Martha Stewart punch and made a tag to slip into the front pocket with a stamped sentiment on the front.  I embellished simply with layered flowers, held together with brads and feathers.
The treat inside is a bag of foil wrapped chocolate eggs.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
There She Goes - #194 - flowers
Whoopsi Daisy - tags
Crafty Ann's - #82 - tie a yellow ribbon
Jellypark - so sweet
Penny's Paper-Crafty - #113 - ribbons and bows
Creative Card Crew - #29 - chocolate
