Origami Star Box
Mar 24th, 2010 by Craftylocks

Easy Peasy Starry Boxes.

star-boxI tend to be a bit speedy when I make things, not so careful on the measuring and the details, so to increase the chance of success I called in a friend who actually measures and lines things up – imagine that!! So of course hers looked divine, she even made a teeny weeny star box – sooo cute. But it works out that even if made with more enthusiasm than care, they still work out just fine – as proven by my children who soon mastered this paper craft too. We thought that they could look better with the patterned side on the inside. Either way is effective for packaging a pressie, kids party bags, or even disposable party food containers.

Enough about the fun we had – find out how to make this paper crafts for children favorite for yourself … Star Box Tutorial or Worksheet – How to make a Star Box PDF.
