The Rubber Cafe' - Triangle Origami Gift Box

Greetings Everyone!! - I'm writing today from Minnesota- let me say we're definitely going to have a White Christmas- and for me today it was a bit cold being in the low 20's and upper teens! I was born and raised in SE Minnesota, but living in So California for the past 20 years, I'm not as used to these colder climes as I used to be!!

For my project today I have a quick and fun little gift box that I first made last week for a bunch of my co-workers.  I used a simple stamp and die set from Stampin'UP! to complete these.  And the kraft christmas paper pad from Hobby Lobby  - too cute right?

 I liked them so much I decided to make another using the Ornamental Holiday set, from The Rubber Cafe' and share a simple message for the season with you!

Enjoy the Magic of the Season!

Here's a side view...

I took pictures of this cute box as I made it to show you how simple it is once you get the proper scoring done. But just was not pleased with how the pictures came out. I think the tutorial I used from Splitcoaststampers by Deb Feltz, is so much better, so I will share that link with you here!

They're fun cute easy to make and for a 2" Triangular box you only need 1- 6" square pc of paper, and for the cover or flap 2" x 4 1/4" scored in half at 2 1/8".
I close mine with these new velcro closeures you can buy here at The Rubber Cafe (I just love these)

Give them a try wouldn't they be fun as treats next to everyone's place setting your Christmas dinners??

Happy Holidays Everyone!
