Half the fun of gifts is the packaging – well, sometimes – well, mainly when the gift is cheap and small, it needs a fun package. These paper triangles are fun to rip into and easy to make – win,win. I won’t go into making a gift package paper triangle too much – there are several out there, but here’s an overview:
Use hot glue on the seams – I tried a gluestick first, but what was I thinking – hot glue did the trick. Cut a rectangle and glue the 2 short ends together. You’ll have a tube. Then glue one end, like shown:
Now, for that open end, glue it together so the middle seam is on the side (on the end that’s already closed the seam is in the middle – can you see what I mean in the above pic?) – that’s what makes it triangle-ish.
For extra spunk, I ran both ends in my paper-crimper-thing – - it takes a little muscle since you’re crimping on top of dried hot glue, but it’s doable.
Comes out like this – makes it look more “finished” if you ask me.
That’s it – pretty easy and fun, right? Now, make 70 more for every child at church. The fun starts to wear off just a little….
Oh, as I’m doing this and watching trash TV (I think it was The Bachelor) I had a sneak come down out of bed – she helped me “organize” them (see the line-up) – -
Anyways, go try this – you can do it!
