I love to make origami boxes, they are the perfect way to package little gifts, cookies, or candy. When I made these particular boxes over the weekend, I used plain colored lightweight cardstock and stamped designs on it. You'll need two squares of paper/cardstock, one slightly smaller than the other. Unfortunately, I stuffed these boxes a little TOO full of Valentines goodies, so they ended up a little mis-shapen. But hey, they work.
Here are a couple of photos of the boxes done WELL - when I made them for my good friend Heather's baby shower last year. We used little candles in the boxes for favors:
I'd love to provide step-by-step text how-to on the folds, but I'll have to add that at a later time (it will take a while) so hopefully the pictures are relatively self-explanatory for now. Don't hesitate to ask if you have specific questions.
