I think this folded paper card display looks like the "and" symbol- "&" (well not the one in this font but the one on my keyboard!) It makes a great little display for my recycled wool felted sweater and button ring (the one you can make at Unique LA with me!) All I did was add an extra cut in it from the original pattern from the book The Packaging and Design Templates Sourcebook .
I printed the pattern out on a nice piece of heavy paper.
Then simply cut it out along the lines.
I did add a sticker and the extra slice for the ring. You could add 2 holes for earrings too!
You could really use this fun shape for all sorts of things. Hey, if you do leave a comment telling us what you did! We'd like to know.
If you love this pattern and you need 139 more grab a copy of:
