Happy Anniversary!

Today is our wedding anniversary and so I gave my husband an origami card.....handmade of course! I found the instructions for the card and box in the new book, Origami Card Craft by Karen Thomas. This book is packed with great cards and envelopes to fold from origami or scrapbook paper. I met the author of the book once at a craft show and she is really a nice person. Her instructions in the book are easy to follow and result in cleverly folded projects. I wrote my anniversary message inside each opening of the picture frame and my husband can fill the frame with his favorite photos. My message will be secretly hidden in the frame. I like the fact that the box is exactly the right size for the frame card. Many packs of origami paper have multi-designed papers and may not contain six of the same design so you can use similar designed paper or cut the 6" squares from large sheets of washi paper. Some thing about folding origami and making something 3-D from a square of paper is very satisfying. It is also satisfying to make a unique card, especially when you've been married as long as we have and it becomes hard not to make the usual ho-hum anniversary card. Happy Anniversary Sweetie!
