Pencil Pouch

Here's a pencil pouch I made this morning.  Not thrilled with it so I kept on tweaking different things, and finally I gave up.  I guess it's ok-but not really what I was going for.  These would be cute to give out at your kids' V-day parties at school.  Or any other holiday party as far as that goes.  Here the instructions: (hopefully yours will be cuter than mine!)

Cut a piece of Cardstock at 7-3/4x4-5/8.  (Or you could use patterned paper if you don't have v-day themed stamps.) Stamp as desired.  Turn cardstock vertical, score at 2-1/8 and 4-1/4.

Then apply sticky strip along the bottom on the inside (non-stamped side) and up the skinny scored side on the outside (stamped side).  I really hope I'm making sense here!  Stick it together, punch part of a circle on the top edge for the pencils to go in.  Then stamp or embellish as desired. 

I'd love you to see your version if you create one!

STAMP SETS:  I (heart) Hearts, Filled with Love, Valentine Defined
CARDSTOCK: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Real Red
INK: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso
WOW FACTORS: Small heart punch, large heart punch, circle punch
