Create some little lucky birds from paper, and then thread them onto a piece of twine to create a cute garland. String them alone on a loop of twine, and hang them on a branch to create a cute table top decoration in a vase.
Is it a card or is it a gift box? It’s both and it’s a lot of fun to create and give! This special little gift is perfect to give to a teacher filled with useful supplies or can be used for a fun idea for a box for the tooth fairy and these are just a couple of ideas on how this can be used.
Sometimes you just feel like creating something, but really don’t want to change out of your sweatpants and leave the house to buy the materials. I doubt there’s a craft room in the world that doesn’t have a stockpile of paper. That’s why I’ve recently gotten in to origami.
I mentioned paper and went straight in to a fabric tutorial, I know. I think it’s a great idea to use origami techniques with materials other than paper. These fabric butterflies are so fun and easy, and they can be used in so many different ways.
I’m love baking, but live with a health nut, so when it comes to consuming my baking creations, I’m on my own. That’s why I give away baked goods for pretty much any special occasion. I made some French macarons for my mom for her birthday and wanted a quick and easy way to give them to her that looked much better than a plastic container. I think I’ll be making many more of these little treat boxes for all of the recipients of my sweet treats.
