My mum once taught me how to fold a paper box with a lid (origami) and so I came up with this little project to fold a box from the leftover backgrounds and film the process to teach you how to do it.
It's a quick and easy way to make good use of old backgrounds (or any other paper for that matter) and a hand fold paper box makes a lovely and personal wrapping to put a small present in, to give to someone on a birthday.
With Easter coming up, you can also fold some boxes and fill them with chocolate eggs or other candy. You can make a whole bunch of boxes, from very small ones (to put one piece of chocolate in) to bigger ones... don't you think that will look good on a decorated Easter table?!
So here's a video on how to fold an origami paper box with a lid, have fun!
The used gelli prints were made with these stencils:
Marit Barentsen is a passionate art journaler, mixed media artist, art instructor and creative writer from the Netherlands. Marit inherited a passion for words from her mother, who is a writer. Her father taught her to not only “look “ but also “see.” That combination led Marit to become an art teacher and her art always showed images and words. After art school, she worked as a graphic designer. Years later, she re-discovered the combination of words and images in art journaling and her art took flight. Marit's art has been published in various magazines and art books.
THANK YOU MARIT for an awesome post!
