GIFT WRAP SERIES #8: ORIGAMI BOXES

Gift Wrap Series #8: Origami Boxes
























These boxes are clean, simple wrappings. Not only are they beautiful for gift giving; they are also re-useable. Choose traditional rice paper or personalize them, like this map variation.

Above: I wanted to mail our nephews a memento to capture the fun we had. Some of the items that the kids and I collected were: an eraser that looked like Swedish currency, a globe pencil sharpener and local favorite local candy bars, wrapped in Swedish colors. I asked my daughter to teach me how to make these origami boxes. If you would like to learn how to make these boxes, too, click here.

    1. I'm so happy that you came by. I found myself thinking of those little purses this afternoon ... and how much fun it might be to mail a kit, wrapped up like this.

    1. Thank you! I definitely know I would have loved this as a kid -- we love doing everything we can do to make the world a little smaller between our shores.
