To get to the yummy Hello Panda cookies that are inside!  I purchase the Meiji Hello Panda Cookie pouches on Amazon – they were just too perfect for this adorable stamp set!

This little cookie pouch is simple to make.  Just cut one of the Stampin' Up! Acetate Card Boxes in half and insert a piece of Basic Black cardstock that measures 4 3/8" x 4 3/4". See the scoring instructions below. These dimensions were shared by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Jill Olsen – thanks Jill!

With the 4 3/4" width at the top of your Stampin' Trimmer, score at 1 1/8".

Then slide the cardstock over to the 1 3/4" mark and score.  That's it!

This is what your cardstock will look like after scoring.

Simply fold on the score lines and slide the cardstock into the box – no adhesive needed.  Then decorate as desired.

To hold the flap closed, I stamped the "Love You" greeting from the Party Pandas stamp set, punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch, and attached it to the pouch with a Dimensional.  Then I just tucked the oval with the panda under the Love You circle to hold the flap closed.

I stamped the panda in Archival Basic Black ink and then covered it with Clear Embossing Powder and used the heat gun to melt the powder.  I like the deep shiny black that you get when you emboss with clear powder!

The 1/8" Real Red Ribbon came out in the Holiday Catalog and carried over to the Occasions Catalog – this narrow ribbon makes the perfect hair ribbon for our little panda!  Thank you for stopping by – full supplies are at the bottom of this post.  Time to hop along….
