Cut a rectangular piece (size must be bigger than your gift) out of the cardboard sheet.
Fold it to form a cylinder. Cut out a cylindrical piece from an inch below the larger cylinder. This will be required to fix at the bottom of the pouch.
Cut out of the jute cloth a piece of appropriate length to be wrapped around the cardboard cylinder 2-3 times. Allow some cloth to be left both at the top and at the bottom to cover the cardboard piece entirely.
Stitch (or stick with super glue) the lose edge of the cloth over the cardboard cylinder. Next, attach an appropriate length of jute string on the upper and lower edge of the cardboard cylinder and also on the mouth of the pouch.
Using one of the pointed end of the scissors, make holes on both sides the upper portion of the pouch (above the cardboard ). Pass the jute string through the holes on both sides of the mouth of the pouch. Tighten it.
Attach the glass bits on the body of the pouch with glue to decorate it.
Attach the artificial flowers and beads on the end of the strings.
Now drop a gift item into your pouch, tie the strings into a beautiful knot and hand it over to the one you want to present it with.
