I love origami. As a child, I would steal my older brother's origami books and hide in my closet with them trying to see just how small I could make the fox, ball, bird, crab... I absolutely loved it! My brother would eventually find his books and hide them from me. I would always hunt them down to do more origami. So, when I saw this tutorial at Infarrantly Creative, I knew I just had to try it! I loved it so much, that I wrote out my own instructions so I can do it again and again without having to look up the video! To watch a how-to video, see here.(You can click on the picture to enlarge it)
This is a bag I made from 8 1/2 inch square paper. It was the perfect size to put a half dozen homemade magnets! I'm giving a friend this cute bag and some magnets (not the ones pictured) for her birthday. Love it!
We make Christmas candy every year to give out to friends and family. I'm always looking for a fun way to box/bag up the candies to give out. This year, we'll be doing gift bags! I already bought the paper at Joanns (on sale 50% too).
