A Little Black Box

Just as every woman likes to have the perfect little black dress in her closet, so goes it for us crafters and the little black box; perfect for so many occasions. 

I love making these boxes since they look so professional.  Once you make the box, you only need to decorate it and you are done.  (And if you use printed paper, there is not much decorating needed.)

I decorated the top with the Tattered Lace florentine bow dies.  I know that when I first saw those dies, I thought, "why are they called bows"?  Well, if you curl them and sort of fold them in half, but not all the way, you have the loops!  I layered two loops and then used the Cheery Lynn cuties to make the flower in the center.  Added some leaves from the rose leaf embossing punch and that was it;  pretty black and white with a bit of red!

If you would like to learn how to make this decorated origami box, as well as 3 other kinds of boxes, join us for class this Saturday, June 28@1PM.Be sure to call or email to reserve your seat!

Supplies used:
Dies:  Tattered Lace Florentine bow set, Cheery Lynn cuties 2
Punch:  Large rose leaf floral punch & embosser by Nellie Snellen

Thanks so much!
