Hippity Hoppity Easter is on it's way...

I am proclaiming it...the weather is going to get warmer and spring will arrive on the wings of the red-winged blackbird. I know everyone says it is a sign of spring when you see the robin...but I think it is the red-winged blackbird that lets you know when spring has truly arrived.

Today I was "playing" with an origami box using paper from my stash. I came up with this....

The photo quality isn't very good, not sure why. The box is smaller than I was aiming for, however, I can change the dimensions of the paper and easily change the size of the box. The bottom portion of the box is made from a very high grade Bazil paper, it is actually too brittle for this purpose. I do love the paper though, it is a very soft 'banana' color. The top of the box is designer paper that I picked up last year, it is Far East's "Pocket Full of Turquoise". The photo doesn't display the bling on the floral paper, but it is there. The yellow ribbon is a Michael's dollar bin variety. The tag is from Making Memory's Garden Party. The candy...yummy Dove chocolates.

Hope to be posting more frequently as my schedule isn't quite as hectic.

Blessings all and Happy Early Spring!!!
