To celebrate Mother’s Day, I am sharing the diagrams for my gift box, Wrapped With a Bow.
Last year at the end of April, I initially designed this model:
I then promptly taught my rather clunky version to my very patient online class. I highly recommend teaching origami to anyone who is interested in creating their own models and/or diagramming. Not only is teaching rewarding in its own right, but it can also reveal surprises.
That very first class taught me how to open the box I had created.
Over time, I refined the unwieldy parts of the model and streamlined the folding sequence.
Please enjoy the end results of this Wrapped with a Bow gift box.
