Contemporary Box Origami

So I was wearing this pretty blouse yesterday at work, and the color mix inspired me to play in my planet last night.  I picked from my Copic markers and reinkers collection, and made this background on Copic Illustration Paper using E49, BG72, E93, BG09, YR14, R59, Y17 and the Colorless Blender.

And then there is this box origami that I liked from the Origami 2012 Calendar, which I bought from Joann's in December:

I thought of using my designed paper to make this origami box.  As I was about to start folding, I accidentally saw the negative side of my Copic background paper:

I kinda like the effects of this side better, so I used it instead.  Here's my cute origami box made from 8 x 8 Copic background paper:

I adhered cardstock in the bottom to make it more sturdy, and attached flower brads on the folded sides to secure.

Materials used:
cardstock:  Copic, leftovers
ink:  Copic
tools:  Martha Stewart score board, micro hole punch
embellishments:  brads 

Guess what?!?!  It's almost Spring Break... and I can't wait!!!

'Til next blog!
