Origami Box

Great news! Pink Persimmon just released some new Christmas themed stamps - you so need to check them out. You will soon be seeing some examples of their use right here, in time for Christmas cards.

Have you ever created a small, origami folded box? They are fun, they don't need a very big piece of paper and what a cute way to give someone a gift. In fact, this was the kind of box I used a few posts back using The Cat's Pajamas stamps and my little candy box.
I used a couple papers from CutCardStock.com. A Kraft colored paper and a wonderful green for the bottom box. The top is decorated with some stamps from Unity Stamp company. I used a large green brad for the center of the flower - that gave a nice little bit of dimension.
If you google, origami boxes you will find a number of little videos that show the steps but here is a link to a web site that shows very clearly how to create a box with Origami folds.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
