Geisha Girls

I have found another use for my strips of paper and using up odd  design papers from 6 x 6 paper pads. First off though can anyone tell me where June went to? One minute its was the 3rd of the month and now it's the 30th! Don't even have the excuse of having been away on holiday either just in the garden enjoying the hot weather we have been having.  Raining today so I'm back in my craft room now  that it is cooler and determined to post at least once more before July pops up. 

I have been busy looking at origami tutorials and making lots of shapes . These are two little Geisha Girls.

Once you get the hang of the folding  they are really easy to make. 
I have  looked as lots of videos and then put my own spin on the hair styles, faces and the flap of the kimonos.
I am entering them into the following challenges:
Gem of a Challenge #13 Anything goes.
Cards 4 Galz #202 More than one fold.
Krafty Chicks #670 Anything goes.

Notelet Box.

I have been making a lot of these over the past few months. Each one different in colour, size and style. I don't make a pattern for them just make each one from scratch as I go along according to the paper and supplies that I am using.  This one has been received by its recipient so I can show. 

The design paper is by Stamperia 'Lilac Flowers' and the die cut Butterflies are by Spellbinders 'Shapeabilities Butterflies'
The alphabet letters are from a die set by Craft Emotions  which I cut from purple card stock layered up each letter and then heat  embossed with clear embossing powder to give a nice sheen. 
Once the box size was made I hand cut the note paper to fit and added a ribbon  pull tab to the box.
