The Origami Box Tutorials ...

Hi Everybody,

Last Christmas I added  the tutorials  for this decorated box and it was very well received.

 It is quite a big box if you make it from 12" Square card  and last year I filled mine with bathroom goodies  like soaps and bath salts and my family loved them.


Because the video was long I did it in two parts.

I completed the base in one and then made the top to fit the base in the next stage.

I used a study double sided card and then added all the pearls and flowers to make them pretty to give.



So here  are both parts of the tutorial  and I hope you will have a go at making them for your self and I hope you will enjoy them

More tomorrow ...

  4. Hi Christina,
    I made these boxes last year and like you filled them with bath goodies. My friends loved them, so to those who didn't have a go last year, what are you waiting for, the oohs and aahs make the effort worthwhile.
