Making a beautiful origami box is easier than you may think. I love to give gifts in these because most the time people like the box so much that they consider it a gift in and of itself.
If you can follow the steps based off the pictures then don't bother reading the text, it's only included to help if you get stuck. Honestly writing about how to fold origami is not easy at all and there's a reason why most the time it only has diagrams and very little text.
-8 pieces of origami paper, 4 foil sheets for the lid and 4 sheets for the base
Once you have the 4 slightly smaller sheets you can fold the same way as the the units for the lid.
Fold down the upper left corner to the middle crease line.
Flip the unit over.
Re-crease the middle fold on the bottom on the unit. Bring down the top part to make a unit like in the last picture.
Fold all pieces of paper like this.
