I have been searching desperately for a specific origami box on the Net and complain to Paprika that I could not find the pattern. It’s not really a box actually, there is no lead. I like the design with triangular petals and double sided paper –like the one I bought last week. I did it once from a book we had in Paris -unfortunately we had to get rid of when we moved.

Of course, my natural eagerness, pushed me to go for an other option and I did a simple square box. Like a favor box. As soon as I did it, I felt a little bit puzzled. What could I put in ? Jewels ? Beads ? … No ! I imagine little sweets in !

Last night, Paprika did find out the pattern of THE box -I guess in 5 minutes, like usually ! – and send it to me by email to surprise me ! Isn’t it sweet ? I will be able to show you one soon.

Why sometimes, when I don’t know, should I keep it simple and I don’t ? ‘Même pas peur’ !… Instead of making plain cookies, I had in mind Fanny’s lovely sablés ! I liked the bi-color idea and decided to go for a cocoa version. It was fun to do it, but as you can see on the pictures, my sablés look like finger food ! They are only 3cm diameter. The reason is I divided proportions into two. I don’t have a couple of hungry children at home so I did not want to end up with 30 sablés !

Never mind, they are tiny, but edible and not too sweet, I prefer ! Just ready to offer !
