Acetate pouch for bath salts

My second challenge for you all this month over at In Love With Stamping is a limited supplies challenge. No card is allowed! You can use acetate, vellum, DSP, candles, tile coasters ... in fact anything, just so long as it's not cardstock.

Here I've used acetate to create a pouch for bath salts to create a gift.

Stamp set: Serene Snowflakes
Cardstock: Medium Window Sheet
Ink: White Stazon
Striped Grosgrain Ribbon: Basic Black
Other: Silver Elastic Cord

I used a template to cut the pouch from the Medium Window Sheet and then used White Stazon to stamp the small snowflake before adding sticky strip to the acetate fold and assembling the pouch. I added some more sticky strip to the inside of the Striped Grosgrain Ribbon before wrapping it around the pouch, so that it doesn't slide down. Silver Elastic Cord was used to tie the ribbon at the side.

As a Christmas gift I'll add coloured bath salts so that the snowflakes show up better, but I only had plain ones in the house to demo with - sorry.

Hope to see your creations in the ILWS gallery soon.
