Good evening, friends!!! I hope all's well and I apologize for being so late posting today, however, it was such a beautiful day today that my hubby decided we'd spend the day together and end it with dinner out. It was fabulous day and I had a wonderful time!!!
Before I get started, I see a new follower I'd like to say hello to -- hi, Blue6366!!! Welcome and so very happy to have you!!! Now that you're at home and family...
I mentioned I'd have the tutorial for you for the origami box and I do. You'll need one 8.50" x 11" sheet of cardstock and paper glue to make this box, and whatever embellishments you choose to decorate it.
Starting with the top 8.50" (across) side of cardstock, score at 2.50" and 6".
Turn paper around to the top of the 11" (across) side of cardstock, score at 2" all the way down the length of cardstock; score at 2.50" but do not score past the scoreline marked at 6" for the opposite side. Next, score at 4.50" and 6.50" all the way down the length of cardstock; score at 8.50" but, again, only to scoreline marked at 6" for the opposite side; and score at 9" all the way down the length of cardstock.
Turn paper around the opposite 11" (across) side of cardstock and score only to the scoreline at 2.50" and 8.50". You're scorelines on the cardstock should look like this:
Next, on both 11" sides, cut the 2.50" and 8.50" lines in both directions to the scorelines opposite them as noted on the diagram below in red:
All the remaining black lines are fold lines.
Fold up the tabs and the panels at the 2.50" and 8.50" red cut lines. You're cardstock should now look like this:
Now fold up along all the remaining black score lines, then unfold and lay cardstock in a flat position again.
Next, fold the inside panels up, with the cut ends folded in forming one-half of the box; do the same to the opposite side forming the other half of the box; glue box sides. It will look like this:
Now fold and glue the tabs down on the remaining three (3) corners and you have your origami box!!!
I hope I made the directions clear enough for you. If you have a problem, just let me know!!!
If you make this box, I'd really like to see what you did with it!!! Enjoy, and...
I'll be seeing you!
