First of all I would like to say hello and welcome to my two new followers. You are so kind to join my blog friends.
Today I want to show you an origami box that I saw on Ribbons Flowers and Pearls and you can find a video tutorial Here.
I do like to make boxes and like the Flap Boxes I showed in an earlier post, the body of this box is made from one sheet of 12 x 12 double sided card, plus extra for the lid. It can be made smaller depending on the size of your square of card. I think it looks so pretty. I used this piece of card because it's not exactly my favourite so I thought if I ruined it it wasn't the end of the world. I know I should have probably made it in paper first to try - but I'm impatient!! And it turned out okay. Just imagine what you could put in here to make a lovely gift! And it can be as plain or ornate as you like. I'm going to have another go soon and see what else I can do with it.

and finally the lid
I know it seems like a lot of pictures but I wanted to show it from different angles.
Well that's my post for today. I do hope you like the box and perhaps decide to try it yourself. Have a great day everybody.
With love from Christine xx
