Valentines Day Origami Boxes

"We don’t really go all out for Valentine’s Day. I get Marty a small gift and make him a card and we spend a quiet night at home. I like to get the kids a little Valentine’s Day surprise as well. Some years it’s candy. Some years it’s personal care items. This year, I wanted to include something small that I made but I wasn’t sure what. I’ve been doing origami for years. When I started, I made simple frogs and butterflies. They’re fun to add to note cards or scrapbook projects. These Valentine origami boxes are really very easy to make. Most of the time when I do origami, I start with origami paper. In this case, starting with scrapbook paper is easier for the bottom of the box and will result in a sturdier box. You can use origami paper for the top if you like. The size paper you start with depends on the size box you want to have."
