"It`s MORE Boxes"

Hello and welcome to this little corner of Blogland.
Thank you so much for taking time to come visit me.   I love that you do that and leave all your lovely comments.  If you leave a comment and have an active Blog I love to link back to see what you get up too.  There is such a wealth of talent out there and so much inspiration.  Don`t know about the rest of you but it sure helps on the "empty head days" to have some ideas floating about.
My post for today comes from one of those days.  I was looking at Christine Harrop`s Blog  she had made a beautiful box.  She got the Tutorial on Becca Feekan`s Blog  www.amazingingpapergrace definitely worth a look Becca does some "amazing" things.   As most of my regular followers know I love making boxes, I just had to have a go at this one.    Once you have done one it does get easier.  I love Becca`s box but if I am totally honest I prefer making the Origami Box from the Tutorial over on  I think it`s the fact that the Origami Box needs NO lazy is that??  The other thing is I have now made so many I don`t need to to watch the Tutorial.  There is also such a great opportunity for going OTT with decorating the top of the Origami Box.   I have written down all the measurements for Becca`s box, I certainly will make more that`s for sure.
Here are the Boxes I made

I made to blue spotty one first.  Decided when it was all fresh in my mind to make another two

Card from my Stash
Woodware Border Punch System to make the bands
SB Fancy Square Dies
Flowers from WOC

That`s it for today 
Thank you very much for calling by I really appreciate every visit
Till next time
