Graphic 45: A Ladies Diary ~ Origami Box

Hello dear friend!! 

As I said in my profile narrative,
"I thoroughly enjoy making cards
and working with paper and cardstock,
so you just never know what project I'll share!"

I'm proving that with what I'm posting today!  lol

While at Memories of Time last Saturday,
I saw a couple of beautiful boxes sitting on the counter
and found out that the owner, Michelle, made them.

Yesterday, I found a very easy to follow
tutorial on YouTube (will post links to several)
and followed along to made one for me.

I just happened to have a stash of Graphic 45 Papers on hand! ;)
The loved these vintage papers the first time I saw them!!
They're called "A Ladies Diary."

The box itself is made from one sheet of 12" x 12"
double-sided designer paper,
and it really is folder origami style!

My box:

Here's a side view:

Here's the lid and a glimpse of the inside of the box:

I'm not sure it's completely done,
as I'm looking for a little charm or something to add to it,
but I couldn't wait to share it with you!!

I'm loving my new phone's photos!!  Woot!!

Here a link to Bonnie's super tutorial:
