Paper Pyramid Gift Boxes

Paper Pyramid Gift Boxes
Check out my new site, Let's Wrap Stuff. It's dedicated to all things related to gift wrap. You can even submit a tutorial or photo (even if you don't have a blog)! Lately, I've been a little obsessed with making different kinds of gift boxes. These are so simple to make, because Sassafras has generously provided a free printable template. Print the template onto the inside of an 8.5 by 11 piece of card stock. These little boxes are easy to open and close, and would be perfect for a little Mother's Day gift like earrings or a necklace.

Make a Folded Felt Gift Box Curbly-Original So a few months ago I spotted these DARLING felt, flatpack breadbaskets from Teroforma, and I thought, "Dude, you can totally make that." My idea, however, was not a breadbasket, but a little gift basket. So I grabbed paper and pencil and came up with plan. First, the supplies: one 8" x 11" piece of heavy felt from the craft store, NOT the flimsy kinda scissorscraft knife and cutting mat, optional but helpfuldoo-dads to decorate the boxa pencila PDF template, which you can find on my Scribd page Second, the how-to: Print and then cut out the template to create a pattern. Trace the pattern onto the felt. Using the scissors, cut the image from the felt; if you have one, use the craft knife to cut the little, rectangular slots (it's easier than using the scissors). Depending upon the thickness of your felt, you might have to adjust the openings of the trapezoidal opening. Third, the folding: Fourth, the decorating: And you're done!

Small Gift Bows Here is another great gift bow tutorial! These are a little bit easier to make than my Jumbo Gift Bows due to the smaller, more manageable size. They are also a great option because you can use almost any paper to make them! All of the bows you see here were made from pages out of a magazine. Holiday ads have great colors and images to make gift bows from. You could also use scrap booking paper, newspaper, gift wrap, or even get some rolls of ribbon at the fabric store and use it to make these decorative bows without having to cut strips yourself! To make the bow seen at the top of the page you will need to start by selecting a full page out of a magazine and cutting it into strips: For this bow I cut my page into 7 strips, all 3/4" wide as seen above. Next, you will make your loops into figure 8 shapes by looping your paper. Secure your bow loops in the center with glue, double sided tape or a staple. Now your bow is ready to assemble!

Felt Dahlia Flowers Dahlia flowers are so gorgeous. I used this tutorial from It's the Little Things, but I made a few slight changes. I've seen a lot of similar flowers floating around Pinterest, and I am so glad that I decided to make one. These are so much fun to make, require absolutely no sewing, and look good in so many combinations of colors. Here is a free template of the stencils I used. First, cut out 3 different sizes of petals to use as your stencils. Now, using a hot glue gun, put a dab of glue at the end of each petal, and pinch it together until it dries. Cut out a felt circle. Start gluing the outside ring of petals first. Continue on with the next ring. Now glue down the inner ring. There are a lot of fun things to do with the center. Here is another tutorial for the center flower. Cut a thin strip of felt about 1 inch wide and about 8 inches long.

Min lille gratulerer-med-ny-logo-og-profil-gimmick til Caroline alias Sukkerfeen ble ikke notatbok for oppskrifter som først tenkt, men derimot en cupcake-formet gaveeske i god gi-det-videre-ånd. Jeg kan godt se for meg at Sukkerfeen kommer svevende med en slik en med noe søtt og deilig oppi. Cupcake-esker av denne typen finnes det mange bilder av på nettet, men det har ikke lykkes meg å finne en mal for gratis nedlasting.

For øvrig kan eskene selvsagt fylles med akkurat det dere måtte ønske å gi bort eller oppbevare. Best av alt: Disse eskene er slett ikke vanskelige å lage! Da sier jeg bare værsågod - det er servert!
