Door Knob Hanger With Treat Pouch Tutorial

Hello everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting today. As many of you know, I've been lucky enough to be a guest designer for Bugaboo Stamps for January and February. I can't tell you how much I am enjoying my guest designer spot!!! Anyway, one of the requirements as a guest designer for Bugaboo Stamps, is to do one tutorial during your guest designer term. Well, the day has come for me to do my tutorial and its being featured at Catch The Bug, today. I hope you'll stop by and leave a comment if you like the project.

Now, let me tell you what we are going to make, today! For today's tutorial, we're going to make a cute door knob hanger with a treat pouch. It's a fun project and turns out really cute! I hope you'll enjoy it. If you make one, I'd love for you to share it with me so I can see yours!

Okay, now, let's get started:

Supplies You will Need:

Designer Papers
Stamps or Digital Images
Red Liner Tape, Tape Gun or other adhesive
Paper Cutter
Circle Punch
Embellishments for decorating


Cut your cardstock as follows:

4 1/2" x 7 1/2" for hanger base, 5 1/2" x 7" for the pocket.

Next, cut your patterned paper as follows:

4 1/4" x 7 1/4" to fit your hanger base, and 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the pocket.

Attach your paper to your hanger base.

Now, you will want to score your 5 1/2" 7" cardstock as follows:

Score at 1", 1 1/2", 5 1/2" and 6".

Turn cardstock and score at 4" and 4 1/2".

Now, trim your bottom corners with scissors. Your pocket piece should look like this:

Fold your pocket on score lines and use a glue gun, red liner tape or your favorite adhesive to hold your pocket together. Please be sure to use a good strong adhesive for this part! Once put together, your pocket should look like this:

In the photo above, I've already added some adhesive to the back so that it is ready to place on the door hanger base. Once you have your pocket together, attach your patterned paper.

Now, take your circle punch and punch your hold in the center of your hanger base.

Then, attach your pocket to the hanger base, add your stamped or digital image, and decorate.

Here is my finished door knob hanger with treat pouch:

I used the following images: crown and princess, by Bugaboo Stamps, to decorate the pouch on my doorknob hanger. The images are colored with Promarkers. I used lots of bling, by Recollections, because, after all, princesses needs lots of bling! I used ribbon from my stash, at the top to tie a bow right above where the doorknob is. (Sorry, its hard to see in the pic.)

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial today! I'd love to hear your comments!
