Origami Fortune Cookie in a Mini Take Out Box

13 Feb

origami fortune cookies and mini take out boxWell here is my very own handmade valentine gift….An Origami Fortune Cookie in a Mini Take Out Box!! I’m using mine as a valentine gift with a personal message but I think it could be used and decorated for all sorts of occasions such as weddings, birthdays, new year or it can even be used as a mini jewellery gift box. I found a template for the take out box at Mirkwood Designs, you will find lots of box templates that you can use for all your handmade crafting needs on there. I was going to create a tutorial to make an origami fortune cookie but I’ve found two great examples that helped me: 1. HP Fortune Cookie Tutorial 2.Origami Fortune Cookies from The Pretty Blog, both come with free templates you can use!!

Easy Peasy Bird Clips

30 Jan

Its been a while since I published my last post! I’ve been busy making and creating which i will update you on very soon. But in the mean time I though I’d share with you these easy peasy Bird clips I made way before Christmas. I used mine to hang my Christmas Cards up with. I Tied garden string around the banister and attached my Christmas Cards using these. Since then I’ve been using them to organise my scrap fabrics and papers together and I’m sure you can find a million other uses for them so they don’t need to go into the loft with all the other Christmas decorations.  They are really simple, so simple in fact  you probably don’t need a tutorial to show you how to make them………but I made one anyway! Hope you like it…..

How to make a small gift box

I’ve been making a few things over the festive season and I thought id share them with you . The first thing I made was this cute origami gift box. These small gift boxes are great for jewellery and they are so simple to make. I’ve included a tutorial incase you want to try it yourself.

Tip: I would make the base of the box with thicker paper or card for more support.
