On one particularly poor Christmas...not that Christmas wasn't fabulous...
but that funds were low...
I decided to make gift boxes to decorate the Christmas tree with.
I made 25 of the same size box...wrapped them in
leftover giftwrapping that I had saved for years...
and tied them with a bow! Perfect decor for our blue and silver theme.
I learned how to fold this box in 3rd grade...Mrs. Holman's class.
I love that she taught me how to make this!
Here's the origami how to:
and then triangle way...
And then the edges fold into the center line as well...all 4 sides.
Open it back up and you should have loads of little squares in there!
You can fold it...or cut at this point.
I always cut.
Right along these 4 penned in lines.
Then fold over the corners of the non-cut sides.
overlap the flaps of the cut pieces...
Now you can do the same process with a paper just 1/4"
smaller on both sides...and it will fit tight inside this lid like a tight gift box!
Here's the step by step without the cutting...just folding in the corners of the flap.
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
