Hi there! I’ve got a fun tutorial for you today for some pretty paper utensil holders to make that plastic silverware you’ll be using this summer look sleek and sexy.
I found the cutest paper plates at Target from the Design Love Fest collection, and just couldn’t resist buying them. I wanted my plastic utensils to look just as amazing as the paper plates, so I made some easy paper utensil holders from the new Utensil Wrapper die from Sizzix.
Aren’t they fun? These are a seriously easy way to dress up that table for all those upcoming picnics and parties you’ll be hosting.
Let’s get started!
Paper Utensil Holders:
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Sizzix Utensil Wrapper, Scallop die
- Cutting pads
- Colored and pattern paper
- Adhesive- strong glue or double-sided tape
Step 1. Make a Sizzix sandwich by stacking a cutting pad, the die face up, some fun paper pretty side down, and another cutting pad.
Roll it all through the Big Shot.
Step 2. Fold along the scored lines on the flat utensil holder. Use glue or some double-sided tape to adhere the bottom pieces and the side together.
The die also makes a small scalloped rectangle that you can add to the front to write names or a message on if you’d like.
I also added a colored piece of paper inside my wrappers to add more color and pattern, but this wouldn’t be necessary if you used double-sided paper.
Now you can add a colored napkin and any plastic utensils that you need into your cute new paper utensil holders. Aren’t they fun?!
Now I just need to start planning my next party around this amazing color combination. It doesn’t take much to make me want to throw a party!
What are your favorite party colors right now? I’m digging pink, mint, coral, turquoise, and gold.
