Dainty Thoughts - Origami Box

This cute little origami box is very easy to create. Simply stamp, score, and fold - super quick and easy. The most difficult part is tying the bow!

Actually, what took the longest time was deciding what stamps to use. I was away from home and only had a few stamp sets with me, and most of them had large images. Since this box is only 2" across, the stamp images needed to be small. I finally realized that the flowers in the Dainty Thoughts set were just the perfect size.

This 6"x6" piece has been scored and is ready for folding. One thing I really like about the little box is that the sides on the inside of the box are a continuation of the outside, so the box is decorated on the inside too. A piece of acetate is scored and cut to form the clear lid. For complete instructions, Tresa has a great video on her Fabulously Artsy blog.


  1. Your random stamping with that set is soooo cute! Great Box.

  2. Cute little box, Sheila! I need to sit still long enough to watch that video. TFS.

  3. These are so cute!

    I have seen these cute little boxes on the board, but what size and where do you get the clear box?



Thanks for your comments! It is always nice to hear some feedback. :)
