papercrafting for fun

As I previously mentioned I have been playing around with this origami box design , this is the latest one I have made. I wanted a nostalgic feel to it , so I started by using a chocolatey brown heavyweight paper to make the bottom of the box ( a single sheet of 12 x 12 paper) double sided paper works best for these boxes as the sides are folded back on themselves, but its personal choice , you can decorate them as you wish.I then made the top of the box from very thick card and decorated it with a vintage image and then embellished it. The lid has a small box attached to the inside of it so fits snuggly on top of the main box . These can then be filled to give as gifts. Happy makings
