I have been busy making these origami book boxes since seing them on CraftTV a few weeks ago. This one is for a friends graduation. They are such fun little things to make I can hardly stop myself. They would be so cool with little pictures in them too. I have already given several away. Each type of paper I try makes it look completely new, so I haven't gotten bored making them yet.
Last weekend we worked outside on exterminating the carpenter bees. We filled the holes with steel wool and then caulked over the top. Hopefully that will put an end to them eating our porch. It is pretty sad when even Orkin won't come back. LOL
