Holiday Cheer Pouch and Layered Tags

Today I am participating in an Instagram Hop with Honey Bee Stamps Holiday Cheer Release.  
Even though I am showing you my projects here, please head over to my Instagram page and support the other design team members.  
Be sure to hop AND leave comments for a chance to win a couple gift certificates.

EDITED TO ADD: Instahop starts at 9 am CST

I made two layered tags and a pouch for gift giving.  I love the colors in the Holiday Cheer patterned paper pack this year!!

Products used in these projects are as follows:
Santa's Village Stamps and Dies
Big Pickup Cab Stamps and Dies
Farmhouse Tree Builder Stamps and Dies
Merry Stamps and Dies

This is the pouch and tags. On the left the bottom tag is about 2-3/4" wide and about 5" long.   On the right, the bottom tag is 3" wide and about 5-3/4" long.
Below are photos of the bottom tags.  I took the Big Pickup Cab, colored it with Copic markers and cut it in half.
Copic Colors used for the greens in the truck are BG78, BG75, BG72, BG93. and BG 90.

Left tag: Left side of the Big Pickup Cab with Mrs. Santa and a couple packages.
Second layer is a piece of vellum.  Next is a tag I made with the Merry stamps and dies and on the top are two 1" strips of patterned paper and greenery sprig.

Right tag:  Right side of the Big Pickup Cab with Santa driving.  Next is a piece of vellum with Ho Ho Ho adhered to it cut from the Tailgate Alphabet. On the top are two 1" strips of patterned paper and greenery sprig.

Here is how I made the pouch.  
This is for tags that are 3" wide and about 5-3/4" tall.  
Cut cardstock to 6-1/2" x 8".  Score the 6-1/2" side at 1/2" (that is for the bottom).
Score the 8" side at 3-3/4" and 7-1/2".  That leaves a 1/2" flap for the side.  To cut the diagonal, I measured 2" up from the bottom and then 4" up from the bottom and cut off at a diagonal.  I cut patterned paper and adhered to the cardstock.  If you have a heavy weight patterned paper, you could omit that step and make the whole thing of patterned paper.

Please head over to Instagram and follow along the hop.  Don't forget to leave comments for a chance to win!

Thanks to Heidi Swapp for the inspiration on this project!
