ere's a loooong overdue tutorial!
I totally meant to post this BEFORE Halloween,but that's OK. It's always the right season for chocolate and giving away sweets.Right?
I just made a bunch of these paper bowls for a crop tomorrow. Scrapping and chocolate is like peanut butter and jelly;)
What you will need:
- cardstock or double sided patterned paper
- hole puncher
- border punch
You can make these bowls any size you want.It's up to you how much candy you want them to fit.
I like 9" x 9". It's not too big or too small.
So start with you 9" x 9" square.
Use a border punch all around if you want to be fancy.
Then you need to score or draw lines. If your paper is 9 x 9, score by 3" and 6" both horizontal and vertical.
(Note:if you used a borderpunch,you will need to measure your paper and divide by three, to know where to score. A good idea is to use a calculator. I didn't in this example and the whole thing turned out crooked!)
I learned a tip from my dear friend on how to score easy.Use a stulys and slide it through your trimmer.
You will have 9 squares. Score the four corner squares diagonally.
Fold the horizontal and vertical lines in a valley fold and the diagonal lines in a mountain fold.
Punch a hole in the four corners and thread a ribbon trough them.
Make a bow,ink the edges, add a tag or whatever and you're done!
These a perfect little gifts. Can be used for birthday parties, baby or wedding showers. You name it!
And they are also very easy to make so they are great for kids crafts.
Good luck and happy crafting!
