MHK Designs Gift Box

     Today I have a project for MHK Designs using one of their gorgeous digi paper sets called Damsel In Distress. 
      This set comes in a rather stunning pink but with a little help from my printer functions I have changed the colour to a very nice mauve.
     The origami box was made following a brilliant video by Christina Griffiths, here's the link, Christina's tutorial is very easy to follow.
     It was printed with a different pattern on each side of an A4 120gsm paper. One A4 sheet will make this box bottom and decorate the lid, you will need an A5 of co-ordinating card for the lid base.

      With the addition of some paper lace on the edges, some paper roses and a small length of ribbon for the lid the materials list is quite short.
      From an A4 sheet you can make a finished box that measures 3 1/2 inches square and 2 1/2 inches tall including roses.
     Just imagine making wedding favour boxes this way, if the Etsy shop doesn't have what you're looking for then contact MHK Designs about the possibility of a bespoke set.
     Digi papers are so versatile, you can change colour and size by adjusting your printer and being able to print double sided papers is a real bonus.
      Come over to MHK Designs blog and join in our challenge for the chance to win some digi papers and stamps.  You don't have to use MHK Designs products to enter but we would love it if you did.
