Supplies needed for the utensil pouch:

 
I used a cookie bag that I purchase in bulk for the base of my utensil pouch.  You should be able to find something similar in a party supply store or online.  I ran it through with the Spellbinders embossing folder and was happy to see that the embossing looked wonderful!  I wanted a punch of color on the plain white bag however so I went over lightly with the chalk ink from Clearsnap in Yellow Citrus.  Just allowing the embossing to really come to life.

The cookie bags are actually a little wide to be used for a utensil pouch.  I used the utensils as a guide and then folded over the excess on both sides.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the excess on the back of the pouch.

Now let’s work on the decoration for the front.  I cut a shape from card stock using the Spellbinders dies.  I then used some flower stamps to add two flowers.  I used fine line craft markers to color in the stamps then added the button brads to the center of both flowers.

 I then drew stems and leaves on my flowers using the same set of fine line craft markers.  I stamped “Happy Easter” onto a small oval slider using the Colorbox Ink.

The cardstock shape was applied to the bag using Mod Podge.  I then used hot glue to attach the slider to the front.  I tied baker’s twine to one side of the slider, ran it around the back, and tied the other end to the opposite side of the slider.  Make the twine taught but don’t cinch your pouch.

Add a napkin and your utensils for a festive addition to your Easter table.  I think the basket weave emboss is perfect for spring but you could incorporate other emboss folders you have to put your own unique spin on this idea.

You could even personalize that shape on the front with the name or initial of your guests.  Then these great utensil pouches would double as place cards.  Don’t love flowers?  You can change up the decor on the front as well.  This technique is super easy to personalize and can be used for any occasion.  So use it to dress up your Easter table this week and your Sunday dinner table next.
