A Beautiful Way to Say “I Love You” post image

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.

    Mi querida Leyla,
    es un placer leerte, escuchar tu voz, y poder ver, aunque más no sea, tu alma en tus manos! GRACIAS por compartir con todos nosotros tus descubrimientos, tus recreaciones y, en este caso, hasta tu desvelo!
    ¿Acaso el amor no trae desvelo?
    Te mando mi cariño desde la Patagonia!
    Gracias! GabiOrso

    • Leyla Torres August 15, 2011, 5:23 pm

      El amor ciertamente trae desvelo, pero es lo que nos incita a dar más.
      Recibo con cariño los abrazos tuyos de la Patagonia.
