Good morning all.

Well I'm very pleased to say the happy couple loved the Wedding samples so it's going to be all systems go to get all the invites ready for February!

I needed a couple of small boxes for some jewellery and having seen both Rita and Patricia's origami boxes a week or so ago decided to have a go myself. I made a couple with 12" square paper but these were too large for my needs so have yet to finish them. These two were made with a sheet of 6" paper each and some scraps from the bit box.

I've decorated them very simply with snowflakes and some gems.
