Art box DIY

This is my attempt to combine art and craft....Everyone at work seemed absolutely tired and deserved some (cheap) thrills... so I thought I would do it for some of my colleagues to keep on their desks!

It required me to take a simple sheet of square paper...whatever width sheet you take (for example 24 inches), divide it by 4. The number you get should be the dimension of each square (in this case it would be 6 inches). Just outline these 6X6 squares with a pencil.

And in each of these squares you can make a sketch that you like (keep in mind the folds of the balloon box!....I made quick basic human sketches (for my colleagues, I pasted a pictures of Drew Barrymore and George Clooney to keep them going).

Once this is done, the paper has to folded in a paper balloon style (refer to any origami instructions) and that’s all it takes.

I made some yoga posture sketches to remind myself of it...

I also tried to use the fold flaps to draw a lady under a veil and a cat sleeping under a desk.

Office sketch (After twelve years)

Till the year 2000 I was sure I would take up art as my profession, but suddenly something took over and I ended up in a complete different field to be a financial analyst today. I had completely lost touch of drawing lines and curves or for that matter even holding a pencil or a crayon. Then finally a month ago I went to my husband’s boss’s place, came across some pleasant art which was truly inspiring. I decided right there, to get back on track. Finally, one lunch break in office I decided to attempt sketch my office was a terrible, amateur attempt..But trust was truly satisfying getting back.
