Anything but a card

Hey hey! It's Thursday again. And you know what that means, right? Yup, it means that we have a new fun challenge for you at Crafty ribbons. :D This week we want you to make anything but a card. So put on your thinking cap and think of what you want to make. I've decided to make an origami box to give away to a friend of mine for Easter.

This box has been on my "things to try" list for a while and now I've actually come around and made it. :) You can find the tutorial here.

The beautiful papers are from Sandylion's Disney paper pad. Flowers, butterfly, doily and pearls are from my stash. Pink ribbon and lace are from Crafty ribbons.

Once the box was finished I filled it with chocolate eggs. Yum yum! :)

I hope you like my box and that you'll come play with us.
Hugs! xx
