"Another Box"

Hello Blog friends, how are you all?  Yet another new week where are they all going??

Today I have one of Christina`s Origami boxes.
Have you tried making one??  they are actually very easy once you get the hang of it.  Pop over to "".    On the left of the screen there is a list of  Video Tutorials for lots of brilliant projects.  Click on that link, scroll down and you will find 2 long list under Card Making Tutorials.   Down the left hand list 4th from the bottom you will find the Origami Box Video Turorial.   Christina does lots of other fantastic work, all so beautiful.   You are sure to find something there you will want to make.
I needed a box for a little gift and this size is just perfect.

For the base of the box you need a 12 x 12 sheet of Scrapbooking paper of a reasonable thickness.  I used a sheet from a Tilda Paper Stack.
Lace, ribbon and some pearls for decoration.
For the Lid of the box, Roses and Butterflies I used bits from the same stack I had left over from other projects.
A few leaves cut using a Crealies Die

I love making these boxes and hope to do a class at the Tearoom making them
You do need endless patience when teaching people to do these
Robert and Hubby have both done one of them with me.  If Hubby can do it anyone can do it, he certainly is not a crafter.   Robert managed very well and he is only 6.

That`s it for today, thank you so much for calling in.
I love that you take the time to pop in to see what I have been up to.  If I can inspire just one person to have a go at something they have seen on my Blog that makes me very happy 
Bye till next time
