It’s all gone black and white…

Hiya crafty friends,
Firstly, I have thank the lovely Shirley from the fabulous Shernocky Crafts for showing me this gorgeous little boxes and I just had to give them a go.

I also knew exactly what paper I want to use. One of the new Creativity Club downloads…the ‘Black & White Prints’ collection.

I love working with black and white, as I think it can look really striking and classy. And I have now fallen n love with these little boxes too. I’m also excited to have a go at an idea to do something very Christmassy with them too, which I will blog as soon as I’ve worked it out 🙂

When I first saw it, I thought they would be incredibly hard to do, but surprisingly they’re not. I was really happy that I succeeded with my very first try..woo! hoo! (origami has never really been my strong point). And the pattern on the downloaded paper worked great.

I really enjoyed making these little boxes (even though my lid is not as good has Shirley’s), and I think I will be definitely making them again. And I will keep you up-to-date with my little Christmas idea with them 🙂

  1. Very cute little boxes and I really like that black and white patterned paper. I don't usually work with just black and white paper but maybe I will give it a try one day.

  2. Glad you enjoyed making them – try them out in 12×12 – they make great gift boxes & you can go mad decorating the lid! The trick with the lid is to make a small box that fits the top, then stick a slightly larger piece of card stock on top!
