Mini Chocolate Pouch Video

Hello, Crafters.

Today's video has to be one of my quickest! 

I showed this chocolate pouch in my recent video of Thailand swaps, and I was requested to show how it's made.

Once you've made one, I don't think you need to use measurements, because you'll be able to guess where the fold should be. 

Having said that, there are a lot of crafters, like myself, who prefer to have measurements to follow. 

I gave them for the first one, but you can very easily just guess where to fold the flap over!

As I was working out out how this pouch is made, I started thinking if it'd work with a larger piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP)! 

And yes it does! 

The Chocolate Pouch uses a piece of DSP that measures 6" x 6" (15.2cm x 15.2cm), and my Coffee Bag Pouch uses a piece which meaures 9 3/4" x 9 3/4" (24.8cm x 24.8cm). 

To find the place for the fold you need to measure at 4" (10.2cm). 

The design in the photograph is a retired DSP, which is what I use while I'm experimenting with projects!


My problem with the large pouch was how to close it,without using Velcro Dots, magnets and ribbons.

I had a lightbulb moment and remembered our Gold Binder Clips!

By the time I'd thought about this last night, it was too late to try it out properly! 

I'll work on it again later today and show you the finished result tomorrow.

Since I published my video this morning, I've found out this fold is called a diaper fold!

That's it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

JanB.

  1. What a cute little box. Thanks for showing us both sizes, it gives me an idea for back to school teacher treats. I can't believe you haven't eaten the chocolate either! Thanks. Kathy
