Squares before my eyes!

Currently in Blogland I am using a lot of squares, mostly for a forthcoming challenge, I spotted over on

Just for Fun, they are asking for something Square. I made this oragami box for a very good friend who I can safely say loves anything created with the theme of time. I started with two sheets of 12"square paper, to make the base and lid of the box. Once I had folded and shaped the box, I knew where to stamp, before the box was assembled. I reinforced the sides, base and inside the lid with some firm card, covered in toning papers. I stamped on a piece of paper for the first layer on top of the box, then added paper around a piece of card, lastly following with a stamped piece of paper, again wrapped over card. the final embellishments were added.
Stamps used are from Creative Expressions Time A5 plate.
I am also entering this box into the Top Tip Tuesday challenge.
