Origami Box

Hi and welcome to my blog. Fran and I started back doing classes with our friend Shirley today and made 3 fab cards, some with pre-coloured images and backing papers and one that we coloured. Lots of fun and nice to catch up again.
Hubby has just come home, jumped in the shower, eaten his reheated meal and is now snoring away, It's been a very long day for him and I suppose he will start at normal time tomorrow.
I am not sharing a card tonight but this fab origami box. I'm not sure whether I will leave it as it is or put a bit more decoration on the top. I made the butterfly of the same paper and I think that it blends in a bit too much so may change that later.  I'm planning on teaching my little Wednesday group how to make it when we go back in a couple of weeks time.
So here it is....... you can just see the butterfly in the bottom right hand corner.  It does stand out more in real life but here in the pic I think it doesn't show up well.

SU Designer paper from Paper pack ~ Comfort Cafe
Blue card from stash
Handmade flowers (didn't forget the pearls this time, LOL) from scraps of DP
Dies -  Cheery Lyn Designs - Olive Branch
Lace from stash
Ribbon from stash

I'll have to go and see if I can find a few challenges to put this in.

Thanks for stopping by and to those who left me some comments to read, THANKYOU!!!
