Origami star box

Quite a few of the bubblies from the BF forum are on retreat this weekend (wish I could be there), but there are quite a few of us stay-at-homes, so Kathy has been organising a little Non-retreaters mini crop for us. She shared a link to a video to make an origami star box and I've just had a go - it's not perfect (some of the folds could have been neater), but not bad for a first attempt.

Like Kathy, I chose a 10 x 10 square of paper cut from Ethan Kate ripple stripe - I chose this because it was double sided but not too thick.

Now I need to think of something to put in my star box.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Design dollies: time to fold it together
Crafty creations 118: anything goes
Penny's 53: anything goes
Scrappy frogs: anything goes
Sew many challenges 53: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 6: anything goes
Divas by design 1: anything goes
