Happy Friday! You can make anything from virtually anything you can find around the house. I have one more idea to share with you, my blog friends.
These pouches were made with pretty recycled magazine pages.
These pages are from Better Homes and Gardens. I used this magazine because they are usually full of beautiful photographs.
Start by cutting the magazine page to a 7" square, using a paper trimmer. 7" was the largest complete sqaure I was able to get from these torn pages. If you are using a magazine that has a larger format, you can probably get an 8" or 9" sqaure which results in a larger bag.
Follow the step by steps as shown in the pictures below. If you need a more detailed description, it may help to refer to the earlier posts by clicking here.
Now, the fun part is here. I chose to line the top edge with black tissue paper. I cut it into a 1" x 5" strip and wrapped it around the top edge in the following manner...
I used scalloped edged scissors to cut off the top portion of the bag, making a scalloped edged top.
Finally, pretty german die cuts, tiny block letter stickers and stamped cardstock circles make this a quick, unique inexpensive favor for my bunco group, which is coming next week.
