Snowflake Gift Series #1 - and TUTORIAL!

Hello, and welcome to Day 1 of my Snowflake Series!
Each day with a new gifty project, featuring Stampin' Up's stamp set, Serene Snowflakes!

(Remember, yesterday I showed you a teabag holder and said to come back for a tutorial)

It all started b/c I had that 'secret project' I was working on (see bottom of post). One card for Ruth to make turned into 3, and then I got inspired and made several projects to match, using the same materials! 

Day #1 - Teabag Holder

Here's an inside view:

FYI: My plan was to make a video, but I'm not having much luck with those right now. ;-)

Ready to get started?
Step 1:  6"x6" pc. cardstock (bashful blue)
Step 2:  Score at 3", turn and score at 3" again.

Step 3: Cut at an angle from RH corner up to middle, and LH corner up to middle.

It should then look like this:

Step 4: Fold on creases.

Step 5: Lay out flat again and stamp front & back portions, and flaps.

Step 6: Adhere sticky strip to each side, as close to the edge as possible.

Step 7: Fold upward onto sticky strip, and you've got your pockets!
Step 8: Decorate front, add a little matching note on the inside!

If instead of making them, you'd still rather purchase a set of these from me, let me know - I'll set up something for you in my Etsy shop! :)  I'll make up the holders, you put in the treat -- no tea-lovers that you know of? about a Ghiradelli Chocolate - perfect! :)

Now...remember to go check out the matching my review/giveaway on Living Well, Spending Less's 30 Days of Holiday Cheer!  Oh, but first, what do you think of today's project? ;-)
