Origami box....



No card to show you at the moment as I am busy doing samples for our club night and I also have several birthday cards to make this month so thought I would show you something I made in December an Origami Box...

This Origami box has been around several bogs before Christmas so I thought I would like to have a play...I first saw this on Patricia's blog so thank you Patricia...
The box is so easy to make and uses 1 sheet of 12 x 12 paper plus extra for making the lid.  The decoration of the box is entirely up to you, I added a little bit of lace around the edges on the side but its white and doesn't show up very well, I also added some textured card using one of the SU embossing folders. I kept the lid simple by just using some roses and leaved with a Martha Stewart butterfly...  
Here is the link  Origami Box have a go its a really lovely project to make.

Welcome to my 2 new followers..

I do love these boxes and have done a few having seen them first on Ribbons, Flowers and Pearls blog. I had seen them before, but never one with the lid so it was great to find that. Love the pretty papers you have used.Love from Christine x

Hello Anne,
Love your box and as you say they are really easy to make.
I have made so many, like the Chocolate wrappers I can almost make them in my sleep.

That's just soo pretty Anne - I have one of those brains that simply cannot follow origami patterns - I've tried before and given up midway when I lost the plot!

Vicky Hayes said...
