We've never folded so much paper in just a few days—and now there are origami boxes all over the studio waiting for the gifts:)
A lot of experimentation with our printable templates for this class, all printed on a standard 90 gsm paper — not very strong or durable, but will do for light small gifts:
Found this cool celestial map, inverted it in Photoshop and printed out again on a standard 90 gsm paper. The folded box is about 3x1.5 cm, which could be really cool to package a ring or some other small and delicate item.
Block printed patterns (form our Linocut Patterns class) on 210 gsm paper folded into a large box with a lid. Very nice and durable, with the excess paper cut off from under the flaps:
Recycling some nice promo booklets, very nice matt paper of about 150 gsm — very easy to fold, but it holds the shape really well:
Montana Spider Spray Paint sprayed onto 210 gsm white paper — serves as a desk tidy for almost a year now, and is still well intact:) Excess paper cut off from the flaps, and the flaps are fixed together with a tape first and covered with a sticker for an effect.
The outer box and the lid are made out of navy blue 120 gsm paper with the insert is made from the 120 gsm golden paper—together they create a really nice festive mood.
