Origami Box




I found this blog some weeks back and thought I would like to have a go at the various boxes Elaine shows, when I went further back I found the Origami boxes that are really quite simple to make, so this morning I had a go!! Once the box was ready to be decorated I realised that, altho in a sheet of paper it was pretty, it was a dreadful colour to match - neither pink nor mauve but I managed (with the help of white card and distress inks) and am quite pleased with my first attempt.Perhaps a couple more then I'll have a go at what Elaine calls a magic box.
