[Assorted Boxes for July 2021 Craft Fair]

Teresa signed up for two tables this year because she had such a huge variety of origami gift boxes and holiday decorations available, due to not participating in craft fairs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also new this year: Teresa gave brief demonstrations of how to make many origami items -- Demonstration Schedule (PDF)


All money received from origami-lovers at this craft fair was donated to "Support Surfside" -- a relief fund for those impacted by the recent tower collapse in Surfside, FL. Partners in building this fund include The Coral Gables Community Foundation, The Key Biscayne Community Foundation, and The Miami Foundation.
