A super simple but professional origami box, ideal for packaging up your baking!
We've been baking up a storm in the kitchen at CO+K recently but we're never sure what to put our baked treats in to give them away afterwards. When Maemae & Co designed us a custom stamp, we knew it would look perfect on an origami box, ideal for giving baking to our friends!
