I made this origami box to accommodate 2 of the snowflakes I've quilled and gave it as a present to one of my work colleagues.
The white cut-out on the top of the lid supposed to be a snowflake. The problem (that turn out not to a problem in the end) was that I didn't fold the paper enough times and it ended with 4 sides instead of 6 (as a snowflake should have). But I'm happier that it came out like this because it fits and looks better on the box.
I'm not a big fun of Christmas presents as most of the ones I received haven't brought me any joy. So I normally don't buy presents as I don't want to waste my money on something the other person might never use. But I do like crafting small things and give to people.

I studied statistics and IT but I discovered my love for art in 2010 Since then I learnt to do quilling and cross stitch. In august 2013 I gave up my day job in London and moved to Vietnam to pursue my passion for art.
