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.

Gosh, I think I can do this! What a great idea.
Can you tell me what size paper you started out with? Was it 12x12 or something smaller.

Thanks for sharing your talents.

This was so easy to make and directions were so accurate. I made these in all different sizes, ranging from 12 x 12 paper to 5 x 5. So long as the paper is cut to a square, just about any size will work. The smaller ones are really cute dressed up with matching Prisma flowers. Thank you for sharing

This is great! I just printed it out and made one...it turned out perfect! I made it out of the 6x6 ds paper from hostess pack and it is soooo cute. I have a demo coming up and this will make great little gifts for the guests...with a few little chocolate kisses in each one. Perfect! And I'll make a big one for my hostess filled with other treats. How exciting.

You also can make it really small, and turn it into a flower pot. Great Idea by the way! =)

this is adorable! Can't wait to try this one... We usually give the teachers a little prize at Open House... I think I might have just found the "container" to put it in. Thanks Beate!

My friend did these for my daughter's wedding shower out of 8X8 paper, then filled them with candy-coated mini kisses. She used one of the wheels to decorate instead of DP and they were gorgeous. We also did these out of K & Company Girl Scout DP for an award ceremony for brownies and put their badges in them. Again, we used 8x8 paper, but you can use any size that is square. It just depends on what you want to put in them!

So cute! I can use this pattern for a baby album that I'm making for a friend. How cute would this be to hold the baby's id bracelet from the hospital? Thanks for this wonderful idea.

I love this, I am having a large workshop in a few weeks and I think I will make these for door prizes. I will try them tonight and show you the results tomorrow. Thanks for the tutorial!

I see where others have asked what size paper, but I don't see the answer?
Yolanda McDonald  |  Mon Aug 11, 2008 at 7:38 AM
You may use any size paper - the only important thing is that it be square...

I used to do this as a kid too. Had forgotten it completely. I don't think the paper size matters, as long as it is square it should work.
