Origami folding box template
We love a good upcycling project, and save all of our old hard back envelopes and cereal boxes instead of buying cardboard for crafting, why send it off to the recycling centre, when you can use this free resource at home or at school…
What? well, a little gift box like this one…
You’ll love this little project – a really sweet little gift box, origami style with a FREE printable template…
What you need:
A) Cardboard, thin enough for bending and curving – a cereal box is good for this.
C) Pretty paper to cover the box
