Paper Cocoon Ornaments – day 213

Posted on Oct 6, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 7 comments

I loved the idea of the paper cocoon especially around the Holidays.  They can be used as little gift boxes for little presents such as trinkets, truffle or even money.  Lately, I have been using them as purse charms and received tons of compliments:)


Unique purse charm, what do you think?

I would also write a little prayer or wishes in a small piece of paper and that in itself is a gift.


Note: No living things were harmed in making the Paper Cocoons 🙂


  1. so beautiful! how do you make these?

  2. Will you be sharing the instructions for these? They are fabulous!

  3. These are lovely. I would love to make them for my daughter & granddaughter. Where can I find instructions. Thank you for sharing these, blessings

  4. I figured out a cocoon similar to yours, also a different way to keep the top on. Not what you have, but it works. I’m going to put it in my web store as soon as I get nice weather to take photos. This is so cool.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful ideas.

  5. So intriguing. I’m right now trying to figure out how to do them. So far not what you have, but I’m starting to get the idea. How do you do the top part to make it stay in place?

  6. i want to order your kit but im 14 and i like to do this but my parents died in an accident and i have no way to go away and get it or credit card
