We have really felt the full tropical extent of our city over the last few days. The weather has been unbearably hot and humid. Fortunately this evening has brought a refreshing cool breeze!
I couldn't bear to work with fabric in this heat, so I have spent a number of hours folding these origami boxes.
I am building up a few themed collections, which will soon be for sale. These are some of the Typographical set.
I have had a set of these boxes in my lounge for a few months. I find them a very interactive decorative set. I love the interest that they create. Guests pick them up, turn them around, ask what they are and then their faces light up when they realise they are made from LP covers and they take a trip down memory lane or into the past, depending on their age.
Working this closely with these boxes is so pleasing. I am able to appreciate each individual design as I go. I am not always sure how they will turn out until they are folded. The front of the Cover forms the top lid of the box and the back of the cover forms the base.
