Challenge #82
Anything but a Square or Rectangle 

This fortnights challenge 'Anything but a Square or Rectangle ' has been chosen by Jenny.

I had one of those days when I wanted to make something but just wanted to sit in my chair and fold some paper :)  A hunt on Google really paid off when I found this simple pattern to print on patterned paper, cut out and then fold.  It was not hard, and I guess it does not look exciting but crafting is all about having fun and I had a ball for the hour or so while drinking my coffee making this wee box.  I used some design paper I had for ages and ages for the outside and the inside is made from a sheet of free paper topper sentiments paper that came in a magazine.  To tidy up the top the edges I used some washi tape.  I am rather cross with myself as I can't remember the site I found the pattern on and although I kept a record I was clearing files off my computer the other day and put it in the bin which I then emptied.  Been hunting the net to find the site and can't grrrrrr.

I am entering this candle in the following challenges : - 


  1. It looks really good, if you find the link again let me have it please. I would like to make one of these. Hazel x

  2. So lovely and very creative. Kind of an origami paper folding box. Maggie

  3. That looks fabulous! I've done a basic cube shaped box by folding, but this one is much more interesting and impressive.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, it means a great deal to me. Hoping you have happy crafting days ahead. Hugs Mimi
