Unusual Gift Boxes & Bags

The Art of Origami

I’ve always been interested in Origami and I remember having a starter set for Christmas one year as a child. Its such a clever art to learn and some of the designs are truly mind blowing.

I was watching a video on the Nifty website about Origami and came across a video showing how to make little storage bowls, I thought they were great and wanted to try it out myself.


I was so pleased with how quick and easy this was and made another 3 more to hold some of my smaller embellishments.

I thought after how lovely these would be as gift boxes.

By just adding a simple lid it transformed these into lovely unusual gift boxes.

To make these you will need…

x 3 pieces of 6 x 6 paper, my papers are from Docrafts Papermania

 U.K SupplierU.S Supplier,

1 piece of plain card 4.1/8 x 4.1/8

Score at 1/2′ on one of the sides.

Ribbon to fasten.


Check out my full video below to see how I made it.

Hope you like this quick and easy project from me today.

Happy Crafting.
