Morning peeps!!!!

I have been a bit of a quiet blogger this week as I have been immersed in the twilight breaking dawn book that my lovely friend lent me, I read it over 3 nights and it was fabulous, I can't wait for the next film now!!!

So my little share for today is this super super cute little easter basket. I am completely blaming this new obsession for paper folding on my fabby and most creative friend Donna who shared the link to the youtube video from JenLowe this little origami box!!!!

I just had to make a funky little one as I had been printing out some Funky Hand papers earlier in the week and had these sitting on my craft desk. This little box was done with an 8x8 sqaure of paper.
I printed on both sides of my paper.

Now a warning....these little boxes are soooo addictive!! I only watched the video late last night and here are a few of the boxes I have made since!! i have been playing with the sizes and different ways of presenting them!! A few more that weren't in the piccy have already made their way to peeps with yumnmy eggs in!!! Little Mo and I are popping into town shortly to get more egg supplies!!!! romfl!!!
Ok, I am off to get Mo to put his trainers on. I promised him a PJ day but luckily he couldn't resist slipping on his cute doggy trousers sent from his friend Shirley so I don't have to change him!!!! lol!!!!

Have a fabby and creative saturday peeps!!!

  1. Hi wow this is so funky and cute. Gorgeous I am just gonna have to try it too. Your blog stories make me smile. Thanks for the inspiration. Kitty :D

  2. Hi sweetie these are fabulous I love 'em I may have to check out how to make them. You certainly enjoyed making them & I'm thinking Mo will love the eggs lol.
    I love Twilight I have all the books but I never seem to have time to read them so even after having them for about 8-9 months I've still only read 10 pages in the first book lol. I even made my own bookmark with twilight type images lol. I have watched the movies tho I'm not gonna say how many times tho rofl.
    Enjoy your weekend hun.

    Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
