2014, here I come

At the start of 2014 I had my targets for Koyri set. I wanted this year to be different. I had marked February for a big exhibition and when I got an invite to be a part of this one, I worked hard to make this happen.
Three days starting tomorrow I will attend to all those who want to see my handmade, handcrafted labour of love. :)

Please spread a word... Come by and say Hi, bring a friend... I promise you you won’t be disappointed.

The easy peasy paper pouch

When  I held my first exhibition I was thinking of ideas on how I can hand over the accessories to my customers. Whether I should go for those snazzy bags or buy plastic see through zip-lock bags… Being a big fan of reuse and recycle, I decided to make pouches from old magazines lying around the house. The size was perfect to hold a pair of earrings or two. If you have bought anything from me before you must have seen this pouch before. So for all those who have been asking me how to make those pouches that I hand over my earrings in- your wait is over. 

Here is a simple step-by-step picture tutorial to make your own simple no-glue no-cut paper pouch. :)

Take a leaf out of an old magazine.

Fold to a third along the width of the page.

Flip the page around. Make a fold along the 1/3rd of the length of the page.

Fold in the other side over the fold in step 3.

Slide one corner of the page into the other. 

Flatten the edges.

You are almost done. Turn the half-done pouch over. 

Slide the open end into the tiny pocket that is formed below.

Keep sliding it in till it reaches the farther end.

Your pouch is ready. It is the other end of which you were working on. This can be really confusing the first time. 

Once you get a hang of it, these no glue no cut pouches are very simple. 

In my house these are used to store coins, spare buttons, seeds apart from Koyri products. You too can securely keep practically anything and everything in these.


 Let me know if you make one and what you are using it for...
