They must really like me over here because Team SMP Craft asked me – the intern – to come up with a how-to post for this month. (Or maybe that means they don’t like me? It could go either way…) Unfortunately, I am rather limited in my crafting abilities but I did master the art of folding paper back in kindergarten and go through an Origami phase in middle school so I decided to play to my strengths and return to my favorite form of ancient Japanese art.
First things first: don’t think you have to spend money on fancy Origami paper to make this small box. For this project I used a simple CD/DVD envelope. I’ve even made miniature boxes out of Post-Its. The material just has to be a square and able to hold creases. If you’re using an envelope like I did make sure to either fold the flap into the case or tape it down.
(Feel free to make some more and find yourself a hillside…)
