Tutorial for paper pod pouches

Take an A4 or A5 sheet of paper or card.
Stick double sided tape to the shorter edge, roll into a tube.
Stick double sided tape into one end of the tube, squash down
Crimp 2cms of the stuck ond to get a pretty finish and a good seal.
Now the time to put any goodies inside your pouch before you seal the other end!
Good ideas are mini eggs, jelly beans, flower or vegetable sheets with mini growing instruction sheets! Possibilities are endless!
Take the other end of the tube and squash in the opposite direction to your previous crimped end.
Repeat the taping and crimping process for that end!
Viola! One paper pod pouch

Hand knitted cushion cover challenge

It took me so long to knit and cost a "real" lot of money to get enough squares (40) for one cushion!
Job done though and is now in my bedroom as part of my handmade bedroom challenge.
