Today I’m sharing one of the quickest and easiest projects I’ve ever made – a pouch to hold a small item. I needed a lot of very small Christmas gifts, and what is more Christmasy than a Christmas Eve herbal tea bag wrapped in Christmas music?

You can make a whole lot of these little gifts in no time. You just cut your paper to size, then fold. That’s it! No stamping, no adhesives, no embellishments. Of course, you can dress it up as much as you’d like, but I left mine plain to show off the beautiful Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.

When you look at the finished pouch, you can see why it’s called a Diaper Fold.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 6″ x 6″
  • I had already made all of these, so I didn’t have a flat piece of paper to photograph. I had to unfold one, so that’s why the piece in the photo has creases.
  • NOTE: for a larger pouch, simply cut the paper to a larger square

Assembled the pouch:

  • NOTE: be sure to burnish all the folds with a Bone Folder
