Being the curious one that I am, I searched the internet for a box that looked similar to the ones created in St. Louis. This is the video link I watched to create this box! Click here. There is no audio instruction, but it was enough to get it with a little practice!
This is the finished box.
To take this challenge, you will need 16 squares of paper, exactly the same size. I used origami papers for this project. These are 6 x6. Follow these steps for all sixteen squares.
Start by folding diagonally, both ways, then vertically and horizontally, creasing each fold well before going to the next fold.
Next, fold 3 corners into the center. Unfold the left fold and flip over.
It should now look like this.
The paper is turned so that the point that was unfolded is at the top of the photo (left). Bring the bottom point up to the horizontal score line. The photo to the right is the same as the left photo only the point is now facing left. The right side should now be folded toward the left point up to the next score line (about an inch) and then unfolded.
Ready for the next fold. Grab the top outside edge and line it up with the diagonal white edge next to it.
When it is flipped over, it looks like the photo below on the outside.
Here it is all embellied. I added octagonal pieces of white chipboard cut on the Cricut with George and Basic Shapes at 5.75" (not pictured)
The harvest scene is a Dazzle Sticker from Paper Wishes Happy Harvest Stickers, mounted on kraft resist cardstock, colored with Smooch Ink, matted with dark brown, then pearlized green cardstock. Vintage Photo Distress Ink was blended on the edges.
Becca's Peg Bow Maker and a button was added onto the "wheel" of the wheelbarrow.
This is another box I made, using 2" squares of 7gypsies "Trousseau" paper and pink string pearls from The Scrapbooking Studio. Even the flower and the bow were made from the paper! This teeny little box would be great to hold a pair of earrings or a piece of chocolate...hmmm, which do I like better?
Anyway, sorry for the long post, but I just had to share that I could make this work, and you can, too!
Until next time, BE Inspired! Jules
