Hi Everyone! The guys in our lives need pretty packaging too! (I don't think they would admit it, but we know they like it!
Here's a little Father's Day package that holds his favorite homemade treats, candies, or other small gifts. Plus room for a gift card. I used the Island Oasis desinger paper along with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. I used the sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the following tools: Punches – scallop, 1 3/8" circle, 1" circle,slit, word window and modern label. I used my crimper fo the belly band. Sizes of paper used:
1/2" x 8 1/2" old olive for the belly band., 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" old olvie for the pouch.Scraps of designer paper, old olive, pumpkin pie and whisper white.Old Olive ink.

P1030810 If you want a wider, squattier pounch, fold the top all the way down until it meets the bottom. (This make sense when you watch video.) I trim off the tip so it doesn't overhang. The wider versions are nice when you have a little more goodies you want to gift. I wanted to show you the two looks. Any square size will work. The 12 x 12 are nice when you have a little bigger gift. I've made as small as a 4×4, which is too cute and holds one piece of candy.

Happy Crafting! Dee 
For the gift card holder, cut a piece of pumpkin pie at 3" x 5 1/4"

Score at 3".
