PPA-26 Anything But A Card...

So, how about a box!?!?  This is the favor box that I wanted to create for my wedding reception.  However, I designed and handmade all of the save-the-dates, invitations/envelopes, and ceremony programs (my husband, mom, and MIL helped put the invitations together), and my mom created and handmade the rehersal dinner invitations.
Making the favor boxes would have been way too time consuming for our entire guest list!  Making one box for this challenge only took me about 5 minutes.  It is a simple origami project that I use frequently in my work.  I am a therapist and work with children ages 5 to 18.  For work, this box is typically used as 1. an anger box, 2. a container for emotions, and 3. personal thoughts.  Although this is how I implement the box in my work, this box can be used for anything!  Click HERE for the instructions (images included)!  I loved this challenge, as I love to create with paper!

Items used: 1 1/2 Circle Punch (Stampin' Up!), 1 3/4 Circle Punch (Stampin' Up!), Basic Black paper (Stampin' Up!), Whisper White paper (Stampin' Up!), Sizzix Big Shot (Stampin' Up!), letters [for Sizzix Big Shot] and ribbon (local retailer).  To purchase Stampin' Up! items, click HERE!
