Origami Gift Boxes

I first saw these Origami Boxes on Christina’s  blog at http://flowersribbonsandpearls.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/the-origami-box-tutorials.html, there are two video tutorials with step by step instructions which are very easy to follow. This is my version of them

Box number one

Box number two

Box number two

The body of the boxes are constructed from 12 x 12 inch double-sided paper which is very sturdy; lace is hot glued onto the edges.

The lids are constructed from squares of card stock and designer paper with gems added as decoration and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

These boxes are so easy to make yet are so striking and any decoration can be added. The boxes are quite substantial and make gorgeous gift boxes suitable for jewellery, toiletries or chocolates!

Thank you for looking x
