Origami Box (Carte Postale)


This is for today's technique challenge over on SCS to make an origami box. The finished size is about 5" square. The template for the box fold can be found under TLC203 and a great step by step tutorial can be found in the Resources section under Origami Box.
I used the retired Carte Postale used with matching designer paper (can't remember name). I made a few measurement mistakes so I'll have to try this again.
White satin ribbon with Pretties Kit stick pin and Top Note die. Pale and Perfect Plum cardstocks and inks.
