A Matching Set

Today's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is to make a matching set. Another thing on the list I don't do, is make boxes, its the lids. My brain goes into meltdown and it takes several attempts to get the right size by which time I'm having a hissy fit.
But this little box I might make again since I worked out the sizes. Its an origami box, I used this tutorial link and it was really easy to do. The bottom box was made with 20cm square and so I could decorate it, I made the top with a 21cm square. I used my my nestablities to make the scallops squares.
I have to say I was quite impressed with this box, I didn't have one hissy fit!
Afraid I've used those Kaiser papers again and the usual punch suspects, Icicle, snowflake and cuttlebug corner. Of course we can't forget Henry Mouse from WOJ.

This is a great box! Using the Nesties is a great idea, that could have worked well on my recent memo boxes too! I'll keep that in mind next time I make them!
