Little Boxes. . . . . . . (but no ticky and hopefully no tacky)


Good morning my little duckadees. My felicitations to you all. A quickie today as my time is not my own at the moment as you know. For those of you who mentioned 48 hours in a day would be handy, I say nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo as I would probably end up working even more of them hahaha!!!

A picture heavy post today featuring the ever popular origami boxes but the lilac one, alongside its larger blue and cream buddy above, I did create the patterned paper for.

I took a sheet of Lidl's lilac paper and cut it to 9x9 to get a smaller box to the usual 12x12.
You can see why I didn't put this as my opening picture. . . . . . . . wouldn't be pulling in the viewers eh?

I then had a little stampathon with some small stamps from a bargain bin at my local craft shop and Dusty Concord and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks.
I then folded in the usual way, stamped and cut an extra piece using one of the SB Decorative Labels One to pop on the bottom.
As you know from my last box, I like a strong covered bottom and in this case, unexposed flaps. . . . . . . steady on now!!!

For the lid, its SB Captivating Squares, embossed with the Cuttlebug Moroccan Screen embossing folder, topped with a SB Bitty Bottoms flower.
Bit of bling on the side and voila!

Hope you have a great day folks and be good.

  1. This is fab, love your lid, I was helping 24 8-11year olds make these boxes yesterday. Still love making. Children love doing them apart from a couple but we all can't like the same. Hazel xxx

  3. To say these boxes are so easy to make they look wonderfully impressive don't they? And this is gorgeous Ang. I had to laugh because now John is so thin ( ie skinny! ) he does wear braces because he hates belts bunched up round his waist and I was sick of seeing his trousers drooping. I went searching the shops till I found the braces. \not an easy task - a bit like your search for navy trousers!! Hugs Christine xx

  4. Hi Ang. So love these boxes. Wendy has organised a meeting of crafty people once a week and in the first one yesterday she showed us how to make these cute boxes. I'm going to route my 12x12 papers out today to have a go at a larger one.
    Enjoy your Friday. I think maybe the summer is ending here. Rain yesterday and sunny but a bit colder today. Ah well it couldn't last forever.
    Love Val x

  10. So far, I've made 8 of these boxes (it took me a while to get hold of some 12 x 12 paper, it's not available in any of my local shops). They are all destined for Christmas presents, so thanks for the idea.

  15. Hi Ang,

    Love your boxes. Never made any but with you and Patricia both having boxes on your blogs, I must have a go.

    Thanks for the reminder about the Grand Prix. I had forgotten it was on. Love them but not many more left this year now.

    Much love,

    Shirley T. xxx

  16. Love your boxes, people think they very difficult to make. In fact once you make one they are very addictive.
    I always cover the bottom of my boxes, I add flat backed Pearls as little feet.
    Don't work too hard, keep having fun!!!
    Hugs
