nice stellar box
I love origami and paper boxes and I admire those who are able to create them because, unfortunately, I'm totally unable...I'm not able to do either a paper boat or a paper airplane!

This project, taken from an original that I found at home, is one of the few that I can do..hoping to learn soon to build new boxes.
