My convention treat pouches

I can't believe it's already been a month since Sth Pacific SU Convention in Melbourne. I could go on all day about the four wonderful days of fabulous friends, fun, fantastic ideas & inspiration, but today I'd like to share a little convention project. Each year, I like to make a little something to share with friends - generally including some sort of chocolate treat. This year I made little gusseted treat pouches with my trusty envelope punch board (EPB).
The idea was a happy accident discovered while playing with little scored pouches & envelopes with the EPB. I had a thought to combine the two - luckily it worked!  Unfortunately my little brainstorm happened just before I left for Melbourne so most of the actual pouches were actually made in my room the night before convention started (explaining the very rustic pics taken on my dull balcony).

The pouches are really quick & easy to make with the EPB, but I don't have time to share instructions today. Just leave me a comment if you'd like me to put together a tute & if I get enough requests, I'll make one for you all :-)... it's now done. See bottom of post :-)
Anyway, here's a closer look at my original design.
This one used Retro Fresh DSP for the pouch with Flower Shop & Perfect Pennants stamps to decorate. Here it is open...
& from the side so you can see the gusset (click for a bigger pic).
The next 2 pouches were a popular variation on the original. These were quicker to make as I could punch both flag pieces using the hexagon punch (the original was cut by hand). Btw, I coloured the flower with my pink pirouette marker. Purty!
 
Sorry again for the not so great pics. Thanks very much for visiting & remember to leave a comment if you'd like me to share the instructions for the pouches.
Inky wishes, Di
