Wherein I Show You How to Make a Little Origami Box Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

Oh gosh! Is it a week until Valentine’s Day? Here, have my favorite piece of modular origami: a little, pretty, sturdy box. You can put a bunch of stuff in it! A ring, chocolates, dice, tiny flowers, other jewelry, cookies, candies…whatever! I spent my weekend making you some instructions.

P.S. Sorry for the not super great quality. I was running out of time and trying to keep the file sizes low.
