Holiday Paper Bowl Tutorial

As I said yesterday, I have the instructions for the Holiday Paper Bowl.  Of course, it could be used for other occasions depending on the paper you use.

First. get a 12"X12"  double sided piece of cardstock.  Here is the one I'm using today.  

Next score at 4" and 8" along one edge of the paper.  Turn, score at 4" and 8" again.  Fold along all scored lines.

Next, score diagonally in each corner.  Fold corners in.

Next set eyelets in each corner.

Run ribbon through eyelets to hold bowl together.  I would have used a jump ring but I didn't have any.  

Make a bow for the top and decorate.  I cut out some elements to go on my bowl but they got lost when I put them on the paper.  So it looked better without them.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm sure a lot of you know how to make these already.  I didn't so I thought I would share them with those of you who don't.  God Bless You!!! Peggy
