Origami Box

I got a little side tracked last night as I was going to be making some cards using the 'True Friend ' set. Instead I made one of these origami boxes from the instructions over on Splitcoaststampers.

I've made plain origami boxes with lids before so I knew what folds I had to do and it only took a few mins to put together. The cover for the box on these latest ones that everyone is making finishes it off beautifully though, and much better I think. It gives it that 'extra special' something. The papers are Close to Cocoa DSP and Tea and Crumpets so the colours are Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Choc Chip and Real Red. The stamp set is 'Yummy' one of the exclusive Free sets in the Sale-a-bration offer. It's a simple but beautiful set and what I really like is I can use my markers to highlight different parts of the stamp or to just ink up one part like I've done here.

Sale-a-bration is ongoing until 28th February and if you'd like one of these sets they come free with every £45 spent.

Anyway, must go and walk the dog now...

Have a good one!

Jo :)
