Stocking Stuffer Gift Idea




Need a quick gift idea? These little bookmarks are quick and easy to make. They'd be great "little somethings" . . . you know . . . you've shopped and still need a "little something" else? Or for some "thinking of you" little gift or stocking stuffer, these are so cute. I used them as the "gift with purchase" at my recent craft fair.

Credit for the idea goes to Carol. (Hey, girlfriend, I hope you're feeling better!) I think this was a project shared at a regional SU meeting, but I got the directions from Carol.

Start with a square of designer paper (I think a small pattern looks best.) I used a 4 inch square (gotta stretch that 12x12 paper!), but you can use whatever size square you'd like. Fold diagonal corners together (looks like a big triangle) and score. Open and fold the other two diagonal corners together. Now remove one of the small triangles created by the folds (cut just on the outside of the crease for best results) and you should have something that looks like the third picture. Fold into a triangle, and re-crease. Then glue the top triangle to secure it. It should lay nice and flat if you cut outside the crease when removing the triangle and crease it good. Embellish as desired. I used a Sizzix Embosslit flower on these.
Thanks for stopping by today.
