Hi Peeps!

 I hope you've all had a lovely weekend & managed to get some crafting in.

I've not created anything this weekend but I finished working on my Origami box on friday!  This is my first attempt at making one & I was really pleased with how it turned out.  I didn't even do a dry run first - but saying that, I guess this was my dry run but it happened to turn out well first time! lol 

I got my inspiration for this box from Christina's blog.  She created two YouTube tutorials, (which you will find of you click on the link to her blog) which were fantastically easy to follow..the pause button was used quite a few times whilst doing all the folds needed.

Sweeties added!

I'm not too sure if I have completely finished the lid...not sure if I should add just a little bit more to it? I keep 'umming & 'arghhing' whether to or not lol

I have a good home for my box creation to go to - I had my Eldest Niece in mind when I created it.  She was meant to be having a back operation but only just found it she has put it on hold & trying Physio first.  The box & card (card yet to make) was meant for her to let her know I shall be thinking of her.  She's still getting it given to her, operation or not - it's nice to create & give!
