Introduction: Origami Boxes

Picture of Origami Boxes

Honestly, I suck at origami. No matter how hard I try, I'm confused by it and sometimes get angry at the paper or whatever I'm working with. I will be the first to say that even though I find origami difficult, this is probably the easiest origami creation that you will ever make. I know, it sounds crazy, but this is very simple and fun. It's also great for organizing and things like that, so I hope you enjoy this!

Step 1: Materials

For this origami box, you will need...
•2 Sheets of Paper (1 if you don't want a lid)
•1 glue stick

You do not need a pencil. Sorry that I took the picture with the pencil in it. Oops!

Step 2: Get Your Paper

Choose what color you would like to use for the bottom part of your origami box.

Step 3: Fold

If you are not using origami paper or square paper, fold as shown. Then cut the excess paper off.

Step 4: Now You Have a Square

In the next few steps, you will be folding the paper and creating creases so that when you're actually making the box, it'll be very easy to fold.

When you're all done, your paper should look like this. Yes, I know that it looks like a quilt. Pretty neat, huh?

Step 8: Time to Cut

On my paper, I have drawn dotted lines so that you can see where we are going to cut. Keep in mind that this step is not at all necessary.

Step 9: Cutting
