I needle punched scraps of fine sari silk to a piece of dyed curtain interlining, then decorated it with programmed stitches on the sewing machine, using gold coloured and metallic thread. I bonded a piece of gold coloured satin to the back, then cut out the shape with a zigzag rotary cutter (must get some pinking shears!). I pintucked the bottom edges with a machine zigzag stitch and put eyelets into the points of the triangles. Finally, finished it off with a toning machine wrapped cord and a wooden bead.
This is the template for the box/bag
It is just an equal sided triangle divided into four.
