"Origami Box"

Hello Blog friends, followers and poppers by.  Great to have you here, I love that you take time to visit and leave your comments.
Quick post for today, I thought I would show you an Origami Box I made and filled with Tablet for the Consultant that fast tracked John for the operation that has seen him blossom in the weeks since it was done.  He was so grateful to her for seeing him and having to Op, done within 3 weeks.   He had been suffering really badly for months. 
He went for his check up recently, she was so pleased to see him looking so well, he has now been discharged.  
She was thrilled with her gift.  John told her he was more thrilled he was feeling well again.
Here is the box:- 

I do the boxes up in Cellophane to present them.
Paper/card used is a paper stack from "The Works" they are fantastic and at only £4 per pad a real bargain. 
Die used to make the flowers is a SB Die is Garden Blooms from their A Gilded Life range of dies. 
There is a fantastic Tutorial for these boxes over on Cardmakingmagic website.  I an sorry I still have not found a way round to getting the direct link up using Windows 10.  If you Google Origami Box I am sure you will get it.  
I have been making these for a long time I now just "DO" them. 

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in, I really appreciate it
Till next time

  11. Fabulous box I loved your oldie too That is a beautiful stamp Your Brusho work is beautiful too Lovely effect on an embossed image And you're right the Puxie powders with the mica would look equally as good Getting along better with Platinum - haven't even used the cutting plates supplied I'm using my GC ones which is new to me as I am so used to having the cutting plate at the bottom if you know what I mean!

    The little box is beautiful and such a thoughtful gift! Your tablet is scrummy!! Glad John is feeling so much better! Xx

  14. Morning Patricia, This is stunning and I'm sure the Consultant really appreciated the 'presentation' and also the beautiful 'contents'. This box is very pretty and the papers are gorgeous, and your flowers look stunning, I must look for this die set. I have made a few of these origami boxes after seeing one of yours a long time ago, but I still have to fold along with the video by Christina hahaha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
