OMGosh.. This was sooo easy

And soooooooooooo much fun. Please scoot on over to Kristina's blog.. Don't let her know but I've been stalking her from afar. Her work is unbelievable and she has so much talent.. Please check out her tutorial for "Folding Origami Boxes".. Wow.. I watched it twice.. took a few notes and headed up to my stamp room. What do you think for my first go round at it. This whole box took less than 10 minutes. Can you imagine a bunch of these on a tiered plate display for the holidays with little gifts in them. I'm personally thinking homemade chocolate truffles (That is if I have time...LOL)... SHHH would these make good gifts for my table mates for the CNY get together on the 20th???? SHHHH .. I can't make any promises..

Here's what I used...
Card Stock.. Daisy D's red floral paisley for the top, Cosmo Cricket for the Bottom, Mellow Moss
Accessories.. Wide Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon, stapler

AWESOME! What a great job you did. Where did you find your patterned paper? I love it! I just watched the tutorial and am going to sneak down stairs to see if I can put one together ... while the rest of the family watches the Yankee game. Go Indians!

Really nice. I've been looking for a box idea to put small stocking stuffers in for Christmas, now I know what I'll do! I'm not sure my first attempt will turn out as nice as yours did, but it's worth a try.
