Prompt 33 Wacky Words

Sometimes kids say the craziest things!

My daughter frequently makes me laugh out loud at the things she comes up with. Sometimes its a funny phrase. Sometimes she gets a word stuck in her head and repeats it giggling (PEPPERONI.... hahahahaha) and of course they repeat EVERYTHING. Im sure every parent at some time has experienced the horror of something completely inappropriate coming out of a little ones mouth.

This challenge is all about the WORDS.

Our sponsor for this prompt is.... Tres Chic Unique!!

An orgami gift box with JESS!

You gals HAVE to check out this awesome tutorial from Jess!!
Origami Gift Box

Hi everyone!  Jess here, with a little origami box that is just perfect for holding gift cards, a folded onesie, baby socks, hair bows, or any other small gift.  It is so simple to make that you may never buy another small box again!

Begin by selecting two pieces of coordinating 12" x 12" paper.  They can be double sided but don't have to be.  You will primarily see the top cover of the box so choose whichever paper you want most visible for that and leave it 12" x 12".  Set this paper aside.
Cut the bottom paper down to 11.5" x 11.5"... we will start with this one.
Take your bottom box paper and fold it in half both ways.  Use a bone folder or other flat, smooth tool to make neat and crisp folds.  Open it again.
Fold each corner up to the center so that the side of the paper you want showing is on the outside. 

Fold the top and bottom up to meet in the middle. 

Open those folds and crease the opposite sides in the exact same way, meeting them in the center. Open up these last four folds like so:

Pull the top and bottom triangles out.  Use the creases on the sides that we made in the last step to fold the edges upright like so:

The paper will naturally "help" you with this next fold.  Holding the sides in place, pull the top triangle up like so:

Fold the remaining part of the triangle down and tuck it back so it "locks" the side in place.  You may want to put a small amount of adhesive on the bottom flap to keep it there.

Repeat the last few steps with the other side to complete the bottom of the box.

To create your box cover grab that 12" x 12" cover paper and repeat all the above steps.  There is absolutely NO difference in the way the top and bottom are folded! 

You'll see that the paper size difference is just enough to let the box bottom slip perfectly into the box top.

Now all you have to do is finish decorating your box!  I added a border cut band, ribbon, some small flowers, and a tag and this is ready to go for a sweet gift for a little one!
