Wacky Wednesday

So last month, I made this very sweet origami box after a challenge on and then we made the same box on my online class called UStamp. I love this color combination of Certainly Celery, Baha Breeze and Old Olive with the Green Tea paper. I used Eastern Blooms stamp set. I got this tutorial from the TLC203 Challenge and you can link to the post below to download the pdf file to make the origami square box. Here are the supply list and instructions: 12 X 12 piece of patterned paper (double or single sided pattern) for the no-glue Origami Box 2 sheets of double sided paper - 5 1/4" x 12" (for the cover, if you are making on of these) One sheet of lightweight chipboard - 5 1/4" X 12" (again, for the cover only) (I used the backing from the designer paper package or a backing to a legal pad) Craft glue or glue stick (for cover only) Ribbon (for cover closure, or you may use another type of closure) Using your 12 X 12 piece of patterned paper, follow the instructions for the fold that is in the PDF file (attached) Decorate and set aside. Using your 2) 5-1/4" X 12" pieces of designer paper and your lightweight chipboard, score at 4 7/8" and 7 1/8". Check the folds against your box for any minor adjustments in folds. Glue your patterned paper to each side of the chipboard, maintaining your folds. Let the glue dry completely. Place ribbon under the box, wrap the cover around the box and adhere with sticky strip. Thanks Lynn! Now I thought this would be very hard to master. NOPE! It is fairly easy! I would love to do a class for these. Would you like to learn to make one? Let me know. You can put chocolate sweets or several 4 x 4 matching notecards in the box as a gift. LOVE IT! Have a magical day! Cindy
