How to Make Origami Boxes for Ornaments and Gifts

I enjoy Origami and when I saw this box form, I thought, "this would make a great ornament." As I was making them, I then realized they could also double as wrapping for a gift because they can be opened up. What an excellent idea to hang little gifts on the tree or make a lot of them for an Advent!

Materials:

  • scissors
  • decorative paper
  • ruler

This post is a part of the Creative Craft Bloggers Group monthly craft challenge. For the month of December, we were challenged to make ornaments. At the bottom of this post, you can see all the entries and links to their tutorials.
