I can't tell from the picture or the directions just how large the bottom or the height of the finished box will be, but if it's large and tall enough to sit a baby food jar in, you can even use a real blossom in this nice little paper box. Something like a rose or maybe a gardenia. It's a very nice simple little origami craft, and if I can learn to make it well enough to teach my Sunday School class how to do them, it'll make a sweet little gift for teachers, moms or anyone you'd like to surprise with something thoughtful. How about making them for lunch trays at a nursing home?
Would you mind giving us the measurements of a finished box, please?
Thank you for a super nice craft Maricel.
Really cute little craft. Inexpensive too. Reminds me of the Chinese takeout boxes, and I've always loved them.
Thanks for sharing.
If you needed or wanted a bigger flower box couldn't you use a bigger piece of paper as long as it was equal on all four sides to make it square?
