'Tis Thrifty Thursday ladies and gents!

So I just fell in love with these little gems when I stumbled across this tutorial on Creative Kismet's blog. Now depending on the quantity you want to make, it can be pretty time consuming, but well worth the effort. These little origami wonders would be great for so many things such as parties, the office or just for your own personal use. This has got to be one of my favorite tutorial finds! So check it out and be inspired :)

I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. I made 60 of them, enough to last me the whole year if I open one a week, plus a few extra just in case.

I used 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper and cut 1/2 x 12″ strips, then followed the video HERE*.  I put them all in a little jar and prettied it up.  They are so cute and sweet, like little treats. A jar of candy, but without the sugar!

If you try it I'd love to know what you used them for!

Happy Crafting : )
