Friends forever - Origami box

Good evening all

I hope you're all well and you've had a good weekend. 

I had my darling grand daughter yesterday for the day. It was so nice spending some quality time with her.  They are so precious and I'm savouring every moment 

Today I've made an origami box and used heartfelt botanic orchid dies and spellbinders rose creations die.
The orchard flowers were stamped and die cut then coloured in with pro markers
Spellbinders roses were die cut out of patterned paper and distressed with pink chalk ink pad

 The beautiful orchard detail above was also stamped and die cut then coloured in

You can try the box out for yourself here:
Origami box tutorial  
Its quite easy and simple instructions to follow .  

The image is a stamp from crafters companion and I coloured it in using my  pro markers and spectrum noirs.

The patterned paper is double sided and also from heartfelt botanic collection, they are mostly pink papers which is good as it's my favourite colour . It's so pretty and very versatile.

I used magnolia border dies on the folds of the box .  The rest is all from old craft stash

The box itself can be used for many things and would look lovely on bedroom dresser.

I hope you like my project today. Thank you so much for visiting me and your lovely comments . As always they are very much appreciated . 

Much love
Sharon xx
