Origami Boxes

Hello Bloggers, first I would like to thank all you kind people for calling in on my Blog after my long break from Blogging.  Without you calling in and leaving your kind comments none of it would be worth while. 
I am actually enjoying being back and looking at all your wonderful work.  Everyone does very different things, its great to get ideas, hints and tips. 
Recently my DIL asked if I would make a few things for a stall she is having to help with School Funds.  Robert is still at their local Primary School where there are only 14 pupils.  They do lots of things to raise money for School Trips. This always has to include hiring a Mini Bus the money is usually spent on that.
Today I am showing you the Origami Boxes I made, I love making this kind of project more so than cards.
I started making these boxes a few years ago after watching a wonderful Video Tutorial on:-   Christina has some fantastic tutorials you can access from her Blog.  If you go to Video Tutorials, scroll till you find Origami Boxes its all there for you to use. 

Most of the boxes are made using double sided paper/card pads from "The Works"
They are brilliant and cost approx £4 for 24 double sided sheets of 12x12 paper/card.   There are lots of different pads to choose from.  If you don`t have a store near you, pop online, choose and have it delivered to your door. That`s what I do, I live 20miles from our nearest store the price of the P&P is less than I would be in petrol and parking.

Flowers all made by me, something else I love making.

Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it

  18. Hello Patricia,
    Your boxes are beautiful, and you have learned from the best demonstrator on the Internet. Christina is super. ??? Can you give me some idea of what card to search for on The Works, please? This is the first time I have gone to your site, and The Works also. I so look forward to following you and your crafts.
