If you can tell do 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 no easy at all and there's a reason why most the time it only has diagrams and very little text.
-6 sheet of paper, 3 for the lid and 3 (gold, red and green) for the base (all red)
The pieces for the base have to be slightly smaller than the ones for the lid. If you need help making the paper smaller, check this out: http://www.instructables.com/id/Origami-Gift-Box/step2/null/.
