Mini Bread Sleeves

From Heidi...

I thought I'd post the mini bread sleeves I made this week. Adriel originally came up with this cute bread sleeve idea. She made several for the craft fairs we did last month.
I made mini pumpkin bread loaves to give to my neighbors for Christmas and thought that a mini bread sleeve would be a cute way to package them. We resized the larger bread sleeves and came up with this one.

Here are the dimensions, if anyone else would like to make some for the holidays. These fit a 3x5 mini bread loaf.

4.25x11 cardstock, decorative paper (optional), sticky strip or adhesive

1 - Starting at one of the long ends, score at 7/8", 2-1/4", 4-1/4", 6-3/4", 8-3/4", 10-1/8"

2 - Fold at scores to form a box except for the scores at 7/8" and 10-1/8", fold those in the opposite direction to form a handle, as seen in the picture.

3 - Glue decorative paper strips to sides, if desired.

4 - Glue or sticky strip the 7/8" handles together.

5- Punch a hole in the middle of the handle and tie a ribbon or add a decorative tag.

6 - Insert your wrapped bread loaf! Very easy!
