If I had all the time in the world, I would still not be able to do everything I'd like.
One of our students created a beautiful collection of origami boxes. Just have a look:
They're essentially identical, with the exception of the papers used, giving a bunch of different patterns and designs.
These little boxes were each filled with little sweets, which were a gift to us a while back.
As you can see, there were 11 boxes total, each one with a unique selection of papers. And yes, they open - the tops pull up just like a shoebox lid.
Each of us kept one or two boxes.
I went with the classic black and white, as well as the blue and orange. I don't want them to get damaged, so for the time being they're safely tucked on a shelf; soon I'll hide them away inside a box so they can't get crushed or otherwise damaged.
I can only imagine how long it took to make all of these, not to mention learning how to make the boxes first! Origami is something I'd love to learn to do... along with all those other arts and trades that seem so interesting!
