Close to her heart.

corrected 7/18/09:
Back in April I wrote this post about a photo locket I had made for myself. My sister mentioned that she loved it. Luckily it had been my plan all along to make one as part of her birthday gift. I wanted to wait (to post about it) until after I gave it to her on my trip out to SF in April, but being me I managed to forget about it (the post) until now...

All wrapped up:




After much debate I decided to make a tiny origami box to hold the extra photos:




I was lucky that one of the vintage lockets I bought had this inside:



My sister was very happy with her present!

Yes, this does remind me my origami box! You had a good idea of using it, I like it!
