Introduction: Decorative Origami Box
In this instructable I will show how to create a pretty origami box like this one. You will need:
-A square sheet of paper (15x15 cm is recommended, just make sure that it's square).
-A pair of hands
I hope this works for you!
The first step is to take your piece of paper and crease through the middle (see picture) like a triangle. Then, crease the triangle in half. Unfold the triangle and crease the sheet of paper through the middle. Do not unfold this crease.
Fold the flaps of the rectangle to opposite sides and press them down. You should get a triangle like the one in the picture.
In your triangle, there is a hole (see image) at the bottom. Open up this hole, and press the two corners of the triangle flat.
You should now have a square with flaps. Fold these flaps to the center. Repeat on the other side, and you should get a sort of kite shape.
Open up the flaps that you folded to the center in the previous step. Press these down on all sides.
Take the opened up flaps and fold them over the edge through the middle (see picture) on all sides.
Turn your kite shape upside down and fold the flaps over, with once centimeter of space left. This is important to the next step.
Step 8: (Final Step)
Fold the remaining bit of paper over to make a small edge. Insert your hand into the box to shape it and flatten the bottom. Congratulations, you've just made a decorative box to store some knick knacks in! I hope the tutorial worked for you!
