This pyramid box is made from leftover papers from the chipboard album that I made a few weeks ago. I just can’t bring myself to toss out scraps of paper, especially such beautiful one as these from Robin’s Nest.

I used my Zing electronic cutting machine to cut and score the pieces for this presentation box. I found the pattern at Monica’s Creative Room. The box is shaped from folding on scored lines—much like origami. For the spike holder I painted a bamboo cooking skewer, wrapped a portion on the end with silver wire, and added black beads and a purse charm.

Here are photos of the open pyramid box and the topper.

Here’s the finished project—all from scraps and stashes.
