Hi everyone, Marie Browning here! Welcome to the final day of the Tombow USA and Simple Stories Week here on the blog! Simple Stories provided me with the Pumpkin Spice collection, so I decided to create a super simple pocket pouch you can use to share your joy with those you love! Perfectly sized to fill with a pumpkin spice tea bag, pumpkin shaped sugar cookie, photographs or a list of things you’re thankful for!

- Pumpkin Spice Chipboard Frames
STEP 1: Cutting the Cardstock
Using the Pumpkin Spice Simple Basics Cardstock, cut a 4″x12″ piece for the pouch, then score at 4″ and 8″. Then cut a 3″x3″ piece that will become the backing for the chipboard frame. Using the Pumpkin Spice Cardstock, cut a 2″x2″ panel for the front of the pouch, and a 4″x4″ panel for the inside of the pouch.
STEP 2: Creating the Pouch
With the 4”x12” scored panel, fold along the scored lines. Diagonally fold the lefthand square up corner-to-corner. Diagonally fold the righthand square down; corner-to-corner. Glue these flaps down with the MONO Permanent Adhesive. With the MONO Multi glue, add a thin line of glue along the lefthand bottom edge. Fold to create the diagonal pouch.
STEP 3: Decorating the Pouch
Using the MONO Permanent Adhesive, adhere the 3″x3″ panel to the 3” chipboard frame. Round the corners on the 2”x2” panel and adhere to the inside of the frame. Use Foam Tabs to add dimension with a motif. Add sayings and Enamel Dots to accent. Decorate the inside of the pouch with the 4”x4” panel, corners rounded, pre-trimmed motifs and decorative brad. Use a small piece of a Fastener Tab as a closure for your pouch to finish.
