Boite Rose (French) – Pink Box

Once again I leafed through my origami book and found this no cut folding box.  I made this box out of 12 inch square paper but it can be made with any size square paper.

I started with pink pearlescent card from Itsy Bitsy , they have awesome colors. With MS scoreboard I scored all my folding lines.
For the band I used scrap white card with Marianne Ribbon 1 die. After embossing the die I added little color to it with Distress Spun Sugar inkpad.
One of my favourite tool is mini Bowdabra . I made that pretty bow with tulle in one minute….super fast.
Found a pink button from my kid’s old dress and added a small rose to it. The small flower was punched out from the scrap pieces, inked them on the edges to match the band.
The punch I used  was Jeff Flower from Itsy Bitsy.

To finish the box I added pearls and 3D liner to it. Added lighter pink card diecut from Spellbinders Decorative Label One to the base of the box. Storing this box is very easy just keep them flat in a folder.

I normally don't like throwing away even small pieces of paper so now I so such of bits and pieces.
My tip to store these scrap papers,I bought 2 expandable folder added small pieces of color paper to the tabs. I sorted all my scrap pieces according to color and pattern. If the paper is very small I store them in a ziploc cover and keep them in the folder respective to their color. Folder doesn't occupy too much space and also user friendly.
