Boxes Boxes Boxes

I spent a lot of my time off over the latest rash of holidays creating these, for lack of a better name, art boxes.  They are completely handmade.  I start by cutting the form out of watercolor paper, and then I rule and ink the design.  The last step is to carefully fold and glue them into a functional box.  Each one took about a half day to make.  They worked great to wrap Christmas gifts in since the tops stay closed on their own.  I have to admit I was a little sad to see some of them go, but they are in good homes.   I plan on making many more in the future…I’m a bit obsessed at the moment.
