...to admire a little origami box.

The instructions for this little origami box were in a book I was given as a child. I still have the book and I dug out the instructions to use in a teaching activity for a class this week.

It always annoyed me that you ended up with triangular flaps showing inside the bottom of the box, but yesterday I suddenly saw how a couple of extra folds would eliminate the problem. :)

As the weather was absolutely horrible with strong winds and a steady downpour, I didn't venture from the computer so this will have to be my photo for today.

Oh, and I'll let you know how the teaching activity goes in due course -- unless it's a total disaster! Just a tantalising hint, it also features origami frogs. :)
