mini take out boxes and paper fortune cookies

Here is another post along the theme of interesting packaging.
I've been enamored with little and unusual boxes for a while, and collect templates to make them.
This one is a favorite: the mini take-out box.

This one is just the right size for a trifle, a single chocolate, or piece of jewelry.

To make "chopsticks", I just blunt some wooden toothpicks.

To create handles for the boxes, I use some wire, or in this case, a paper clip.

I saw these paper fortune cookies on a wedding blog and just loved them.

The template {link} provided can be sized to be larger or really tiny, as you wish.

  7. Hello! If it`s not too much, can I ask you something? What kind of paper should I buy to make this? And what kind of glue do you prefer for paper?
    Thank you so much!

  8. hi Thili :)
    I made mine out of cardstock and adhered the tabs with hot glue (It sets very quickly).
