I have a tripod now so the video isn't as wobbly as my other video so thats nice. I don't teach how to make the box itself in this video so to learn how to make the box go here . I made some as gift boxes for Christmas presents for my nieces. I put little recycled Rosette hair clips inside them.
When I was in Thailand, I would see the local people weave palm leaves into beautiful bowls, fans, balls and other amazing things. I asked my aunt if she knew how to make these things and she gave me a book that was all in Thai. I don't know how to read Thai, I can barely speak it. Somehow after a week of fumbling around with strips of paper, I managed to decode the pictures and figure it out.
Hey everyone! I'm back today with a fun technique that shows you how to fold your papers to create these really cute boxes. They're easy to assemble, require no glue and can be made from one sheet of paper and a flag banner. I'll admit that I did not invent these little boxes. My friend had something similar on display in her home but it was larger and had a little paper vignette inside.
I’m not sure how I discovered this awesome collection of packaging templates but I’m glad I did! Some professor or student at a japanese univeresity was nice enough to share all their packaging templates with the world! These are a few of my favorites and you can see all of them on their website . Every situation is covered!
Today I would like to share with you a really simple, yet easy box template. So often I get asked by brides to assist in packaging favours like almonds, chocolate truffles and small cakes. This box is perfect for this, and can be customised and decorated to match any style of event.
I made some Waldorf-style window stars to decorate our big living room windows. I like to put them up in the winter, to liven up the wintry view. They are a bit fiddly, but satisfying to crank out, not unlike cut paper snowflakes. The best paper to use is square kite paper (ETA- it's 6 1/4" square.)
Christmas always brings back so many happy memories. I remember that we weren’t allowed to put up the tree before the first day of December, which I must say was a good thing, otherwise we would of already put it up in October. I think it was also a way of reminding us that it’s almost HOLIDAY! For today’s DIY post I’ve designed some Christmas ornaments. These are so easy to make, but gives the impression that it took hours. They’re not just cute to hang on a tree, but can be used as decoration in lots of ways.
There were so many ways they could've gone. The majority of you that voted wanted me to work in paper (such anguish -- haha!), so I did. I'm not quite sure how I ended up with this version, but it certainly wasn't my first attempt. Surprisingly, the biggest challenge was making something that would be a compliment to the outer frame and not be overwhelmed by it. A couple of my initial designs were too delicate or small and seemed to disappear inside the ring.
Our hotel room needs to look holiday-ish (at least for the kids' sake) and I thought a series of ornaments would do the trick. They'll pull double duty because we'll be able to add them to our tree once we get home. What I came up with is extremely easy to make and it only requires very basic materials—a good thing since that's all I have right now.

A few easy folds is all it takes to turn plain paper into cheery cups for servings of fresh fruit salad and more. Use sheets of glassine and parchment paper for moist food, like these balls of honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and watermelon. You could also serve assorted nuts, cookies, popcorn, and other treats in the colorful paper containers. For each cup, start with one sheet each of glassine and parchment paper. Cut whichever sheet will form the inside of the cup to 9 1/2 inches square; cut the other to 10 inches square. Center the small sheet on top of the large sheet, and attach in center with a piece of double-sided tape.
