This cheerful koi box is handmade from scratch. I ran out of book board so I've picked through the scrap ends. Luckily the ends are the right size to make boxes. So this little jewel is 100% upcycled book board, saving the the environment while serving a purpose. Use it for keys, pocket change or hair ties.
Closure is a sewn on, oversized button and black rope elastic. I used this happy Koi Choigami paper for the lid and bottom. The sides are bright cherry red, Italian Fabriano paper.
All gluing was done using my special recipe bookbinding paste.
Box will be put inside a larger mailing box to protect it during shipping.
4" square and 2" high
