A Beautiful Way to Say “I Love You”

This origami rose is also a box, perfect to give a present. Origami boxes are useful and versatile for any occasion. But don’t wait for a Valentine’s day, Christmas or a birthday to give!

A handmade gift expresses depth of feeling and a greater degree of personal involvement in a relationship than a mass-produced item.

A few weeks ago, at Maria Sinayskaya’s flikr page, among her lovely creations, I spotted an origami rose-box, a perfect gift to surprise someone with. I could not rest until I figured out how to fold it.

Here I share a video showing how to make it.

Once made, fill the rose box with candy or small berries and leave it as a surprise for that special person in your life. It is beautiful and easy way to say “I love you” without having to say a word.

Thanks to Maria Sinayskaya for granting  permission to share her rose box.
