Origami Boxes...

...made with Christmas card stock

My sister at Lorajean's Magazine posted a tutorial on how to make origami boxes from vintage wallpaper. I didn't have any wallpaper so I decided to try wrapping paper and that turned out to be very difficult and flimsy (it was my thickest one). But this 12 x 12" Christmas card stock was thick and sturdy and turned out to be perfect for making boxes.

I didn't dress up my boxes with any ribbon yet but they will be so cute when I fill them with treats and tie them up with cute ribbons, bows and tags. I put my chocolate chocolate chip muffin I was eating inside to see how it would look.

I LOVE it!! These boxes look so awesome in Christmas paper! Your muffin looks so good! I think we made chocolate muffins on the same night.
