Origami Gift Box



The Holidays are fast approaching and gift giving & baking will soon be on everyone's mind.
Packaging your homemade treats in a special handmade origami box like this is a snap! This box measures 4x4x4 which is perfect for those tasty goodies like Fudge & Brittle's. You can also use these boxes to hold gifts, party favors, cookies, etc.

For this project I used the new Basic Grey Wassail line and Prima Poinsettias.
- 11-1/2" x 11-1/2" piece of patterned paper (this will be the top of the box)
- 11" x 11" piece of patterned paper (the bottom of the box)
- 2" x 11" piece of card stock (scored at 1-1/4", 3-5/16", 7-1/2", and 9-5/8"
- 2 pieces of ribbon cut to approx. 12"
- misc. embellishments
- adhesive
Here is a wonderful video tutorial on how to make origami boxes.

Happy crafting!
