woops..thanks ThomasK..im glad u nailed it! i just care to share but forget to check ('',)

Exactly what I was looking for. I hate those plastic junk boxes that just create a lot of waste once they are (easily) broken. Paper is very durable and even if broken it can be recycles and you can create replacements yourself (even without 3D printer ;-)

Btw. 3rd row: 7-8-9 not 6-7-8 xD

I think that step 9 was lost this way?

ThomasK19 made it! (author)ThomasK192016-01-07

An here are my first 4 of a lot others to follow :-) Really easy (once I figured out the missing cut in step 9).

Got my votes!

What is step 9?

ThomasK19 (author)CJN12016-01-07

It's 4 cuts. The fold in step 8 needs to be done in both directions. Then unfold them. now there are 4 litte squares at the corners. You need to make 4 cuts so it looks like in 10 where the inner part is already unfolded to the outside.

Below is the missing step 9 (3 steps ;-)

I was eager to try this, but I can't figure out what to do to get from 7 to 8 in the folding steps. I can't see the connection between these two. Then it 10 looks like an entirely different piece of paper than the one I am holding! It is the way of origami, I know, but I am origami challenged. Any suggestions? Is folding step 7 a doubled over rectangle to create a square, then the folds are applied?
