These origami table favors are so easy to make. You can whip up a batch faster than you can say Pumpkin pie.
Have you ever stopped to take notice of all the brown paper bags we bring into our homes on an almost daily basis? I think crafting with brown paper bags has become so eco chic since they are never hard to find!
Here is the tricky part but its really easy once you do it a few times.
Flip the pouch over and repeat, gluing down the flap. You now have what resembles an origami cup or pouch. The layers used when folding make it sturdy enough to hold small treats, silverware, napkins, etc. without tearing.
Now its time to jazz these up some...
Next,sew a wool felt die cut letter and a stamped sentiment on cotton to your round piece. I chose "thankful" and "grateful."
As a special touch, I used Lumiere 3-Dimensional paint on the edges of my pouch. This product comes in the same beautiful lumiere colors but has added dimension. It will be available to US consumers in January 2012.
Glue your burlap circles to the center front of your pouch. Add other special touches like these corrugated flowers created from a recycled box and die cut.
If you want handles for your pouch,here is one option.
Take a larger circle punch or cutter and cut circles from black cardstock. Take a smaller circle punch or cutter and cut out finger holes from the larger circles.
