Last week I went to a TAC open house, and we did a couple of Make-n-Takes, in addition to grousing about price hikes and whatnot (can't have a new catalog without complaining about price hikes! except last year, they thwarted me by dropping the prices.  Now they are back up again).  Chris always designs nice things, but I really didn't see the point of making a little cardstock pouch - what was I going to do with it?  Cheryl looked over at me and said, "Juliet, you could put one of your bracelets in it!".  (Cheryl is so smart!)

It was a brilliant idea!  I had a bracelet that I needed to mail out, so when I got home, I made this:
It is a little thank you gifty for a wonderful friend who sent me these Martha Stewart punches that she didn't want (I can't even say those words without stuttering - "Martha Stewart punches I don't want" - nope, just can't do it) among a LOT of other things, including the heart-shaped button on the bracelet, and the embossing powder on the word (you can't tell it from the scan, but it is a clear powder with an interference finish - Diane sent me a bunch of these, and they are so fun to use!)

I hope she doesn't like the pouch TOO much - she might want her punches back!

You used the punches beautifully- and I bet your friend already knew that! What a nice bracelet you made for her- I love the pouch idea to put the bracelet in!
