These geometric bowls are pretty simple to create. With just a little bit of folding and gluing, you can make your very own cute organizers!
Let's get started!
You will need:
- Scrapbook paper. I used paper from Jen Hadfield's new Home+Made stack by Pebbles Inc and the gold foil paper.
- Folding template (click HERE to download)
1. Cut two pieces of 12x12 scrapbook paper down to the standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper size. One piece will be the outside of the bowl and one piece will be the inside.
2. Open the folding template found HERE. Load both pieces of paper into printer so that it will print on the back of the paper (not the patterned side). Print the template onto the back of both pieces of scrapbook paper.
6. Repeat with all of the numbered triangles for the interior piece. Leave two sections unglued on the exterior piece so you'll have space to insert the interior piece.
Spread glue on the white side of the paper on the interior piece, then fit it into the exterior piece, pressing firmly and smoothing everything out. Glue the remaining exterior flaps closed.
7. Trim any edges along the opening so they are flush with one another.
That's all it takes to create these versatile little storage dishes. I'm using them on my craft room desk to organize office supplies, but they'd be great for little bathroom items, jewelry, or as a catch-all on a nightstand or entryway table.
My favorite bowl turned out to be the one lined with the gold foil paper. The shine just gets me! It's almost hard to believe it's made of paper!
This is such a fun project. I hope you'll give it a try. What are you waiting for?! Don't you need some cute geometric dishes in your life?
Woot woot. We're getting fancy around here. Now you can watch this VIDEO tutorial so you know exactly how to fold the paper! Ya baby!
