* little boxes

Posted on February 15th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Paper Crafts.

I was rummaging through some old boxes of supplies and came across these tiny origami boxes I made pre-craftlog.  They’re about an inch wide. Teeny!

Astonishingly, I remembered the name of the pattern, and, even more amazingly, the link still exists: towerboxes PDF

Don’t remember where I got the pattern for this next one, though. (I bet googling pentagon origami box would bring up some similar ones.)

I was also looking through my old stamp collection and came across this feat of childhood OCD:

It continues onto the back too.  Apparently, I had exactly 3616 stamps at some point!

    Your obsessive stamp collection is something I can relate to. Have you ever traded or sold stamps online?

    Your little boxes are very neatly made. Are they for sale? I use a few cool sites for buying such products: silkfair.com and etsy.com – you should try to get your stuff listed so that people like me can purchase them from you.

    Great blog. You’re on my reader list now :)

    Oh man you just made me super nostalgic with those origami boxes. I used to make those all the time as a kid!

    i still have the small box you gave me, way back when. OCD = good data = good science! ;)

    The little boxes are kinda cute, makes me think of Starbursts for some reason.. and WOW that’s a ton of stamps!
