OK - got it all cut and scored? Now to stamp.

Left Photo: Position Naturals Ivory front panel on top of inked Embossing folder and close the folder.
Right Photo: Put the folder through the machine. Remove panel.
Left Photo: Adhere inked panel to Black CS 4-1/4" x 4-1/2". Pop with dimensionals, then adhere to tote front. Add Panda.
Right Photo: Stamp image using Black ink across the top of each pouch before assembly. Did you notice? My stamp is very long and I didn't have an acrylic long enough so improvides and used the clear acrylic plate from my Big Shot Decorative Strip Cutting Pad.............cool, eh? It worked so that's allthat counts.

Left Photo: Apply Sticky Tape to the sides of each pouch panel. Note: See the small pieces below the pouches? These are "band-aids" to secure the pouch to the tote. The above template/measurements are corrected to reflect this template.
Right Photo: Apply sticky tape to the (2) front tote panels at the bottom and at the top

Left Photo: Using a piercer, attach handle to top of the tote. Position the handle 1/2" away from the tote edge
Right Photo: adhere the Real Red strip to the Post-it Note front. Pop Naturals Ivory panel with dimensionals. Adhere Panda to embellish. Secure Post-it note with additional sticky tape at the top to inside cover.
Left Photo: Card assemble is pretty simple. Adhere dimensionals on the stamped Naturals Ivory panels. Attach Panda for embellishment.
Right Photo: Remove sticky tape on the front panels and adhere.
Left Photo: top view of front pouch assembled
Right photo: remove sticky tape, attach left side of the card pouch, then attach the right side.
