Origami Boxes

Look how pretty these origami boxes are!

Hey all. Have you been thinking about Valentines Day? I have the perfect gift-wrapping idea. I came across origami boxes that are easy to make and dah-ling. All you need is two squares of paper (I used 12x12). You can choose paper for any occasion like Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day (filled with chocolate gold coins of course) Christmas, Birthday etc. Fold them a few times and you end up with a great way to present a gift, candies, cookies or a special note. I included a tutorial below...take a look:

Thanks to my 7-year-old son for filming...he's a rock star.

I just added doilies and ribbon to make them look Valentine-y.

This box has Oreo truffles in it. They look so festive in my little homemade box. If you haven't made homemade Oreo truffles, stay tuned and I will show you how to do it...three ingredients and BAM you're done! They are delicious.

Oreo Truffles

1 pkg Oreo Sandwich cookies
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
candy melts, your color choice

1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency.
2. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate for an hour to make the truffles firm.
4. Melt candy melts as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. You can sprinkle the tops with cupcake sprinkles or decorations if desired.
5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy! Printable recipe.

Mix the crushed Oreos with softened cream cheese. You can mix it by hand or with a mixer.

Roll the "dough" into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate to make them firm.

Dip in candy melts and let dry. You can find candy melts in any cake decorating aisle at a party or grocery store. Walmart even carries them.

They are moist and delicious. Great to put in your (just-folded) origami box and ready to give as a thoughtful gift.

If you don't have the time or energy to make Oreo Truffles, make some of these:

With these: Oreo Cakesters and a 1 1/2 inch heart cookie cutter. The best thing about these is you get to eat the scraps. *our secret*
