How to fold these vintage inspired sheet music pouches:

 

 

Cut and remove one page of sheet music from the sheet music book and lay on a flat surface.  Place it sideways with your choice of music up and the cut side to the top, away from you.  Fold over the cut side of the page about 1 inch and crease it well.   This will become the little fold at the top of your cutlery pouch upon completion.  

 

 

Flip the sheet music over with the folded side down but to the top. Fold your paper into thirds and crease, then unfold. Refold the left third inward and then fold about 1/2 to 1 inch of the bottom up making the bottom of your pouch. Use the clear tape and tape the bottom fold up leaving the third side on your right still flat or open for now.

Now fold the third or the right side in and carefully tape it to secure it and then flip the pouch over.  This will be the front of your music paper cutlery pouch.

 

Tying jute onto the music cutlery pouches
