Sorted

The right hand drawer of my dressing table is looking so much better! Things had got quite out of hand in there! So this weekend I made some origami boxes from a few spare sheets of brown cardboard and an old x-ray envelope. It has brought some pleasing order. Remember these origami boxes and these and these?

That is so neat - in every sense of the word! Next time you are in Jozi, you could make a lot of money as a consultant-labourer in my house, but you'd have to stay for 3 weeks (-:

You are a tresure of ideas. These boxes are very cute and those shops were very lovely too. Your blog refreshs my mind.

OH what a fabulous idea! I love your blog and love love love the origami boxes! You inspired me to try some of my own!

I think I am going to steal this idea to organize my dresser drawer as well! :-) (hope that's okay!)

I just came back to have another look so that there is some sense of order and structure in my higgeldypiggeldy day!

Great idea. My daughter Daniela has been making origami for three years and she loves it. Every time I travel for work I try to get some origami paper for her. Will definitely show her your boxes. :-))

Love this idea. I use a tiered cake stand for my jewelry - looks lovely but needs dusting too often!

Very clever and who would have thought to reuse an x-ray envelope.
