Origami Box

I made something other than a card this time! Yay! Lately, I have been so addicted to cardmaking that I neglected my other crafts. I probably mentioned this a million times already. Sorry! Please bear with me. This is ME. LOL

On to my beautiful origami box. Hehe. When I was younger, I loved origami. I would fold all kind of stuff. I guess I had a lot of time then. :) Who doesn't when you are little? Life is so careful! My favorite things to fold was flowers. I would fold different flowers, attached wires and leaves to them and then arrange them into a basket. A flower basket, you know. They are nice. Hmm..I might start that again.. anyway, enough rambling...

This origami box is super easy and quick to make. Project Tuesday has all the instructions. I didn't need to follow the instructions. I still remember how to make it. :) I never thought of decorating it though so this is new to me.

While blog hopping ( I love to do that too), I found Digiments and what do you know, they specialize in quotes and sentiments! So cool!! Check them out! They got some nice ones! This is one of them and it's FREE!!

And finally, this project is for Cute Card Thursday, with their theme "Quotations!", Simon Says Stamps, pink and brown and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, pattern paper and Digital Tuesday, to decorate a bag or box.

Oh, in case you are wondering about the jewelry set on the picture, I made it. :)

Paper: DCWV pattern paper, The Paper Company cardstock
Sentiment: Digiments
Embellishments: rhinestones, punched flowers
Tools: flower punches, Cuttlebug, scallop circle die
