Back To School Paper Pouch

Sorry it's been so long since my last post.  I've been very busy!  My brother and his girlfriend brought my niece, Katie, down for school.  I'm so excited, now I have all of the nieces and nephews together!  Then, Laura and I went to the pre-season Patriots vs. Buccaneers game!  It was so awesome!
That's Mr. Tom Brady, the greatest quarterback in the world!

I worked a bunch of extra shifts at work, as I needed the game day off and my birthday!  I turned 43 on Saturday and we had a great day.  Mom, Laura, Jenny, and Joe came and we went to have enchiladas at a little Mexican restaurant that I like and then to Violette's, the greatest scrapbook store in the world.    My family gave me some wonderful presents including a Red Sox Spring Training Windbreaker and my Mom and Chuck bought me a Gypsy!  I can't believe it, it was way too much money!  It is being shipped, so I am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.  I've been wanting one for a very long time.  I've been also working on my tutorial for the ScorPal book, but it's taking me longer than expected as I'm so nervous about making it perfect, that I'm making some mistakes.

For today's post/project, I made one of my paper lunch sack pouches.  This is a bigger sack than the lunch sack.  But, I made it the exact same way.  You can find the instructions on this post.  My sister, Laura, is mentoring a brand new teacher this year, so I'm excited to make some fun teacher themed things for her.  I made her this paper pouch with some supplies for the upcoming school year.

I used some October Afternoon Schoolhouse Paper for the front panel.  You probably can't see it, but I machine stitched around the panel.  The apple is cut from the Cricut Cartridge, Plantin Schoolbook.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Teacher's Apple set.  The edges on everything are inked with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink.

Here is a close up of the apple:

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Teacher's Apple

Paper:  October Afternoon, Bazzill
Misc:  Paper sack, ribbon, pop up dots, tissue paper, button, dmc floss, sewing machine, school supplies
