I can not believe it has been almost a week since my last post. The time has just gotten away from me. Between following the blogs from Leadership and getting ready to start my last class of my Masters program the week just flew.

On to the challenge. Yesterday the challenge that was posted on Splitcoast was to make an origami box. I have to say that I enjoy the technique challenges a little more that the other ones Splitcoast offers. For a while now I have been into making items other then cards, also known as ABC (anything but a card). I focused my box around Easter. You will see this technique again. All that is required (per the link) is:

  • 12 X 12 piece of patterned paper (double or single sided pattern) for the no-glue Origami Box (fold instruction to the right)
  • 2 sheets of double sided paper - 5 1/4" x 12" (for the cover, if you are making on of these)
  • One sheet of lightweight chipboard - 5 1/4" X 12" (again, for the cover only) (I used the backing from a legal sized note pad)
  • Craft glue or glue stick (for cover only)
  • Ribbon (for cover closure, or you may use another type of closure)
This is so simple to make you will want to make this for every occasion.

Recipe -- Stamps: TAC I Love Easter -- Paper: Blush Blossom, Whisper White, and Petal Patch DSP -- Ink: Burnt Sienna -- Accessories: Bis Shot, Top Note Die, Circle Nestabilities, Crop-a-dile, Eyelets, Certainly Celery Ribbon, and Copic Markers
