Origami Boxes Review & Giveaway

Origami Star Box

This Star Box design is from Origami Boxes by Florence Temko, published by Tuttle of Vermont. I've been wanting to get my hands on this book for a long time and it does not disappoint! With Christmas approaching you'll never have to find another gift box and you'll refer to it over and over again. Priced to sell, it's packed with 24 projects, mostly boxes, perfect for beginners, but I like it too. Just add paper, I used one 8 1/4" sheet from Tuttle's  Origami Paper Traditional Prints.

*Not to be confused with Origami Boxes by Tomoko Fuse featuring modular origami boxes.
