"Roberts Origami Box"

Hello Blog Friends, hope you are all well.   I have to apologise for not mentioning my new followers before this. Welcome to my Crafty Corner of Blogland, delighted to have you join.   I hope you can get something out of popping in now and again to see what is going on here.     
After my mammoth task of making all those Wallets yesterday I have decided to have a wee rest today.  Not really a rest in fact I have just caught up with the ironing, and a few other household things.  I opened the cupboard where I keep the ironing basket and it was looking at me over the top.  I don`t normally let it get like that BUT!!!!...................I had been busy making things.
When the boys were here on Saturday Robert wanted to do something "crafty"   I got out some 12 x 12 papers and we all sat round the table including Grandpa to make one of these Origami Boxes.  Thomas gave up when he did not get his first couple of creases to his perfect standards, he made something else. (think it was a paper Aeroplane)   Anyway the three of us carried on and this is Roberts box.  Not bad for 5 well only 9 more days till he is 6, he keeps telling me how many more days.  He filled his box with some of Granny`s truffles and gave it to his mummy.  
Tell you what!! you could have knocked me over with a "feather"  when I saw Grandpa`s creation. John never does anything like this, said he actually enjoyed making the Box, which I am keeping.

Robert did not want bows on the sides but did want flowers.  These are on with the Glue Gun, I put the glue on he put the flowers on.  Kids are funny he did not want the lid fancy, just plain please Granny, then he decided it might need a couple of flowers.

That`s it for today will be back soon
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it
