Step 9: This is what you will have when you FLIP IT OVER.

Well it was going great until step 12. What the fuck happened?
<p>Hooray, I think I figured out how to do it without cutting the corners! It doesn't stay very nicely, though. Any tips on that?</p>
<p>this is hard I cant make this I DO NOT GET IT</p>
<p>Origami Post-it box... I made it! </p>
<p>This is really cool, i made a lidded one.</p>
<p>Turn the paper and be patient</p>
<p>I HATE THIS</p>
<p>I don't get step 12</p>
<p>Thank you! Great instructable for lazy office days! :)</p>
<p>Good job but i have to say origami consistent of no gluing, or cutting but good job </p>
Finally! My first successful instructable! Thank you!
Nice. it help me a lot. Try to visit here also http://www.captainnotepad.com/
can you do this with any other paper to make it bigger?
Sure, I think thats a good idea! <br>
thank you it came out a little lager and great I love it!
For the slightly crafty people who like fabric, you can do this by using fabric stiffener, maybe even ModPodge. Once you have a firmer piece of fabric, you can make your folds, and cuts, and there are no limits to size. (Did anyone ever find a slightly larger than? I mean, square post-its are one size fits all, right? 3&quot;, I think. So you'd have to have something about 3-1/4&quot; or even 3-1/2&quot; to be larger. But regular paper comes in colors, and even cardstock does too. I still want to try this with fabric.
I saw an origami box book where you use fatquarters precut quilting fabric - perfect for making wedding favors (daughter's wedding is in a barn). You've inspired me. <br>
I LOVE this!! I've become addicted to making these little boxes! They're very useful!
Thank you! They are fun to make in all sizes!
I mean, it's cute and everything... but what exactly do you have *that* tiny that needs a box?
Well, you could make it bigger with bigger paper
Post it notes are only a suggestion in this case. Use a larger piece of paper if that suits you better.
Awesome instructable with clear pictures! thanks for posting this! BTW the boxes also scale up quite nicely to different sizes as long as it is a square :)
SMD electronic components ;)
One thing that comes to mind is that this tiny box can hold your limited imagination.
Funny, NYRob! But, not very nice. Remember our rules? Corky
It's a joke! Don't lose your sense of humor.
Maybe if they just had a very small box to put it in, it wouldn't have gotten lost.
a pretty good joke, too -not to be mean, just pointing it out
The comment is a general comment not directed to anyone in this politically correct world. Think of the remark in this sense, &quot;One thing that comes to mind is that this tiny box can hold ones limited imagination.&quot;
*The comment is a general comment not directed to anyone in this politically correct world. * You can't backpedal out of snarkiness that easily, NewYorkRob. It wasn't generally directed, it was specific. And it doesn't have anything to do with political correctness (which I abhor). It has everything to do with courtesy.
I have never been so insulted in my life! What an accusation!
What if it was a tiny sketchbook full of schematics, for instance, why not? Write? Even Though it's compartmental imagination eludes its confinement.
Ooookay... asking a genuine question... but if with snark is how you feel you need to respond, more power to you. Hope whoever peed in your cheerios gets what's coming to them.
To be real origami it has to be pure square paper. no cuts. no tears. but besides that I do declare that THIS INSTUCTABLE IS EPIC!
you could put pennys in the box :D
Cool, kinda tiny but so cool!
You probably weren't expecting anyone to click on that link, but I happen to be quite smarter than a bear, actually almost to the level of a fish, and I clicked on the link but it was a dead link... you filthy liar
Whoa, why so mean? Just go to his profile and enjoy. o_O
Make me smarter than the average bear by posting how to make without the cuts
This box can be made with a $50.00 bill also. Practically any paper currency will work as well.
i did it and it was not easy at first but it's very nice thank you for posting how to make it
Whoops, I didn't expect it to go to the top. I was speaking of the comment at the bottom of the page.
This is awesome! I just used it to make a little box and lid because I had nothing to put my friend's birthday present in.
&quot;If you're smarter than the average bear you'll figure out how to do it without the cuts.&quot; When I was growing up, Origami had simple rules, square paper, colored on one side (optional) and NO cutting! Using post-it notes is a brilliant idea that may see more Origami creations turning up in the office.
Dude. I made a rentangle box!!!! :(
how did you make a rectangle box??!!
