Post#49 Origami box with lid

The very first gift box I ever made was an Origami box....Its so simple and I can make it at anytime and almost any size without looking for instructions...Even my kids can... :)

There are heaps of videos and tutorials on the net if you would like to make one......All you need is a square sheet of paper for the lid and another about 1/2" smaller than that for the base....

Origami boxes can be made from any kind of paper....usually thin paper for easy folding.....but because I wanted to make a sturdy box I used card stock for the base....

Once the box was ready, I decorated it with three banners and a stamped sentiment ....

Hope you liked it...
