Happy Halloween! Today there are no tricks, just treats for you! I’m going to show you how you can create these cute (and easy) Tall Treat Pouches.

Today the first holiday project tutorial of my 12 Weeks of Christmas was sent out to my mailing list subscribers. Not only did it showcase a fun watercolor technique, but it also had a fun fold to the design as well.
