hair clips & pouches

I've been trying to keep myself busy while I'm waiting on my MONDO first new catty order from Stampin' Up! The wait is SO hard! I've had these little pouches made for a couple of weeks, so I thought I would photograph them and upload here just to share and keep me busy, LOL!

I was going to make a clipboard hair clip holder like I saw by Alecia Grimm in the Apr-May '05 issue of Paper Trends. Then, I got the idea of the little pouch. I've made bunches of these pouches, I got the directions from SU!'s Stampin' Success, June '06 issue, that demonstrator's get monthly. I'm still going to make the clipboard for Jayde and Jasmine though! Ü

The directions for the pouch say to use a 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock, but I like to use double sided patterned paper. I made this one smaller using a piece of 4 x 4 double sided patterned paper. The pouch is made by folding, the only adhesive I use is on the front flap that's folded down.

You fold the piece of paper corner to corner to make a triangle and crease it with a bone folder. Fold the right point over to the middle of the left side, crease and fold the left point over to the middle of the right side and crease. Take one layer on top and fold it down, crease, add your adhesive under that and stick it down. I put punched flowers and buttons on the front. I used thin strips of paper and cardstock to thread the buttons and then I glued them on. The hair clips are made basically the same as the big clip/bookmarks, just don't put a flower on the back.

I think these would make cute little gifts for the girls in your life or as give aways for hostesses and/or guests, just use SU! punches for the hair clips instead of the Cuttlebug, dies and SU! doublesided paper of course Ü

Supplies: double sided paper from SU!, Basic Grey, Crafty Secrets and Making Memories. Hair clips from Wal-Mart, Cuttlebug and flower dies, chipboard coasters, buttons, ribbons, brads, 1/16" punch for the brads, tape adhesive and E6000.

I just noticed the date again, 07-07-07!
7 is my lucky number, wonder what kind of good luck I'm going to have today?? Ü
