Golden Popcorn

The Oscar party is just around the corner, and I simply can´t wait to see whether my favorites (The Artist and Meryl Streep´s rendition of The Iron Lady) make the cut. I´m not sure I´ll be able to watch it live (it airs at 2am here in Austria), but I´ll be definitely glued to the daytime re-runs. 
And of course, I can´t imagine any movie event without a large supply of crisp and salty popcorn. And while there´s nothing bad about the classic large bowl right at hand, I was thinking about something more glamorous and chic. Enter DIY popcorn bag. I chose the very glam black and gold chevron pattern and I´ll be sure to pull them out everytime we catch up on the winning movies in the comfort of our living room. 

Here´s a step by step:

1. First, start with a template (I used this one). Trace it onto the pasteboard and cut it out with scissors. 

2. Be creative with the decoration: I used a chevron pattern cut out of a gold aluminium foil that I glued to the black pasteboard. Add inscription with a glitter pen (you can also add some stickers and embellishments).
3. Fold and fit the template together and use the glue gun to secure the inside flap and the bottom flaps. 

Enjoy your movie night!
