One day last week we sat down for a half hour to make some little paper boxes. My daughter has been given several very beautiful origami books over the years. Recently I found this pack of cute paper from the supermarket, not expensive but two sided, just perfect for practicing some origami folding.
I chose the pink paper with the tiny hearts to make my first box, very kitschy and cute!
Everyone got involved and my children were very concentrated as they worked.
We followed the instructions that came in the pack of paper. Here's a link to on-line instructions and lots of images.
The boxes fit into each other and are perfect for little gifts. I also think they would be cute left open and filled with sweets at each place setting at a birthday party.
Next time I would like to try to fold little paper bunnies.
