Diaper Fold Pouch

by Beate Johns

Create a cute little pouch out of one piece of paper.


  • One square piece of lightweight card stock or double-sided patterned paper

  • Scoring tool

  • Embellishments (optional)


  1. Step 1

    Fold paper in half diagonally.

  2. Step 2

    Take one of the lower corners of your triangle and fold it over to the middle of the other triangle side.

  3. Step 3

    Take the other lower corner of the triangle and fold it over to the middle of the opposite side.

  4. Step 4

    Take one layer of your top corner and fold it down to create your pouch.

  5. Step 5

    Decorate and fill your pouch.



    Change the filling
    Add little note cards instead of candy.
    Make it an envelope for an invitation.

    Change the size
    Make it smaller to add it to a card front.
    Make it big to hold a lot of goodies.

VERY nice! So simple, but it makes a nice statement. I see me making some of these to use as gift tags on presents...just an extra little bit of splash. TFS!

I used to play this folding when I was a kid. We called it "cup folding". It's so interesting to see some of origami foldings I used to play become card techniques smile

I have a card with using the folding on my gallery

Great tutorial, Beate!!

I can't seem to bring up the directions for any of the tutorials. I get the picture of the supplies, but when I scroll down, all I get is white screen until I reach the comments section. What do I need to do?

We used to make these out of strong paper towels at school and then drink water from them! I'd completely forgotten we used to do this!

Thanks for bringing back the memories as well as teaching me how to do this again!

Think I'll fill the cup with something more interesting than water this time though!

My mother taught me to do this as a child. I used to fold the church bulletin or other paper so I could get a drink at church. I am now in my 60s.

WOW!! How cute!! I think I can even do this!! smile

I am making baby showers for my daughter-in-law. These would be perfect. I was wondering what sized paper to start with to make a good-sized favor?

Thanks for the inspiration!
