Origami Trinket Box


This is a box I created after watching a tutorial by The Gentleman Crafter.  Jim always has such interesting projects!  I’ve actually made several of these because they are so simple to make and really highlight a beautifully patterned paper.  You may notice this is a variation of another box I made shown here.                                                                                  

The handle on the top was made from an unfinished wood piece from the craft store that was labeled as a “wheel”.   A vintage button was added to the center.JoyceOragamiBox1JoyceOragamiBox4  Gold Ranger Stickles were used to outline part of the pattern on the paper and some embellishments were fussy cut from the Ladies Diary collection by Graphic 45.

I hope you enjoy the various views of the box and the peek inside for the embellishments.

I appreciate the time and attention you spend to check out my creations and I hope to hear from you!  Blessings & Hugs to all…
