Thirty Days of Origami – Day #1 (Origami Box)

It’s the first day of the Thirty Days Project, and I started out easy by creating my 2nd-ever origami box. It was pretty simple to understand the instructions (which I found online here). What I didn’t anticipate, however, was that even though I was technically able to copy the instructions and create something that looks mostly like a box, even the tiniest deviation had the power to wreak havoc on the end result.

As someone who has trouble accepting when my eyeliner is just a smidge too thick on one side, or when a piece of art is hanging even the tiniest bit askew, creating a box without four square angles really tried the limits of my patience. It looks like this month will not only be about trying a new creative outlet, but also about learning to let go of my insane need for perfection.
