Thirty Days of Origami – Day #24: Origami Diamond Box – It’s Purple!

 

 

This is one of my favorite pieces. It was really easy to make, is super sturdy, and of course since it’s purple I can’t help but think it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I’m weird like that…you could cover dog poo in purple sparkles and it would probably take me a minute to start to think it might not be the most gorgeous creation ever. Something about purple just pops my endorphin levels – that’s why I created my Tumblr blog, Amethyst & Indigo, to help “collect” purple things online and cull my obsessive need to buy as many as possible. I realized one day on my way to work, wearing purple Chuck Taylors, carrying a purple laptop bag, sipping on a purple thermos, listening to my iPhone (wrapped in a purple case), that it was definitely time to channel my passion a tad differently before I turned into a walking ad for grape juice. Luckily, origami paper comes in many gorgeous patterns – and colors – and now that I have a whole box full I can branch out into other shades 🙂

Anyway, this one was very easy to make. It came from Tomoko Fuse’s book, “Joyful Origami Boxes,” and is the alternative shape of the easiest little docking box, a modular box that takes two pieces. I used 3″ squares of card stock for this one so that I’d have color on both sides, and the weight of the paper makes this little thing pretty tough.
