Origami Spanish Box

These origami boxes are perfect for candies, office supplies (i.e. paper clips, rubber bands), and all sorts of little knick-nacks. 🙂 Plus, they sort of look like monster teeth (or a weird venus fly trap) — wouldn’t that be great for Halloween? 😀

If you create these from a 6″ square, it’ll fit small Post-it(R) Notes perfectly. You can also add some googly eyes to make a little “monster box.” I did that below. 🙂
