Crop Chocolate Design Team Blog Hop!





Welcome to the Official Crop Chocolate Design Team Valentine's Blog Hop!
I am very excited to be part of the Design Team for Crop Chocolate! For this blog hop, we are displaying Valentine's day ideas for you!

My Blog Hop Project is a box made out of 2 sheets of 12x12 paper.
This is my "go to" box for school projects or holidays. It is really a great multi purpose box.
Need a Halloween treat box for school, use Halloween paper.... or Christmas, or Valentine's day, or Easter, etc etc etc.

To make this box, you fold the paper in 1/2, diagonally (makes a triangle), unfold, rotate 90 degrees and repeat.
Unfold.
You now have an x in the center of the paper.

Take 2 opposite corners and fold them to the center.
Leaving them folded, fold them again to the center
(Sort of looks like a 2 ended man's neck tie now.).

Unfold this, and repeat the entire thing, using the 2 other sides.

Unfold again, and you have loads of lil boxes on your paper.
2 boxes over from the point, on 2 opposite sides, you cut upwards for 2 full squares on both sides of the point.

Now it is just fold it together.
And you are done!


And now for the hop...
