Blogging since 2009, I'm a 1950s housewife to the bone and I love to share what I've learned with others. I'm a lifelong foodie, raised with Sunday dinners at my grandmother's and daily scratch cooking in my childhood kitchen. I'm a nerdy homeschooling mama of 3, and a wife of 17 years.

I drink tea when I knit and coffee when I do everything else.

I had seen these around all over and just love, love, loved them! They perfectly combine my love of paper crafts and reading! I am not at all a fan of scrapbooking, but I love me some scrapbooking paper. I hope to be bit by the scrapbooking bug eventually, because I do really like the finished product – either of the wee ones or our friends. However, at the moment I’d rather knit. That’s pretty accurate of almost anything ha!

The two best tutorials I have found for these cuties are over at Midwestern Moms and Tally’s Treasures. My photos are pretty much the same as theirs but I’m posting them anyway – Tally’s Treasures added teeth and big eyes to hers and they look so so cute for little ones. I think I will show my littles how to make these and see what they come up with!

First, measure out three 2.5″ squares on cardstock or cardboard, as in the photie up there ^ on the left. Draw a line through the squares to the right and above the corner square, like the photie up there ^ on the right. Draw a little x on the same two triangles as I did. :)

Next, cut out the shape, without the x’ed out triangles. This is your template, use it to trace around on pretty scrapbooking paper and cut it out.

Score along the edges of the original square and fold those triangles down.

The first triangle that’s folded down only needs glue on top of it and then press the second triangle down on top. So simple and fun!

I didn’t decorate mine further, but you can add whatever you want to them!
