"Coffee Break" Basket.

This basket is made from a 71/2 x 71/2 piece of heavy cardstock. I just tore an old book apart and glued the pieces on the cardstock. Then I went over it with some vintage photo ink.

I used a rope for my handle.

On the round part in front and the back  I used some UTEE on it.

 Back view.

For the silver spoon I used a die from stampin up.

On the side you can see that I just made a knot in the rope.

I used some chalkboard paper for the name on the coffee sleeve. You can just write on it with chalk.

Origami Pen Holder.

You are supposed to glue the 6 parts together. I didn't, I just used paperclips to hold everything together. I found the instructions on Pinterest. I used 9x9 paper.

You have plenty of pockets on the outside to stash things away.

On the left one I folded the bottom part different, so all the pockets wouldn't look the same. On the right one you can see that you can even put paperclips on the top part.

So much storage!!!

Here you can see the top.

This is the bottom. It doesn't have a cover on it, but you can always make one to set it on, but not needed. It was easy to make and put together. It is also very sturdy. Blessings, Renate

Origami Trash Bin with Flip Lid.

I found the video for this trash can at Paper Kawaii. I started out with a 9x9 sheet of paper. It's not hard to make.

 I decorated the sides and the lid.

Here I added a tiny envelope with tiny tags.

This is what it looks like without the lid. You just slide the lid over the center. These would make nice little gifts with goodies inside. Blessings, Renate
