Origami Gift Box

Introduction: Origami Gift Box

Hey guys, here is a very easy to make, awesome and very useful paper origami gift box (or can be used as any other storage box).

It just takes around 3-5 minutes to make the box and can also be made in any size you want.

So, get some paper and start making this amazing box..:)

Step 1: Materials Required

The only thing required is PAPER, of the color of your choice..:)

Step 2:

Start with a square piece of the paper, white side up. Fold the paper in half horizontally and vertically, so that the crease looks like the picture shown.

Step 3:

Fold the four corners of the paper towards the center.

Step 4:

Fold the top and the bottom of the square into the center and open out again to create these creases.

Step 5:

Open the top and bottom triangle flaps.

Step 6:

Fold the sides of the model into the center, creasing well.

Step 7:

Fold down top corner of the model and open out again.

Step 8:

Fold down model in the other direction.

You should now have two new diagonal creases like shown in the second picture.

Step 9:

Repeat the 7th and 8th step at the other end of the model, so you have the new creases at both ends as shown.A

Step 10:

At one end of the of the model, open out the model along the creases you just made. This will raise the top portion of the model vertically.

Step 11:

Fold the top of the model over in the box like shown.

Step 12:

Repeat step 10th and 12th at the other end of the box.

Step 13: Making the Lid

To make the lid, just make another box, but start with a slightly bigger piece of paper.

Step 14: Its Finished

The box is now finished.

Now use the box as a gift box or to store your jewelry, etc. ENJOY..:)

This is practical origami at its finest! And there are so many possibilities to make it fun, too!

I made little 2" square boxes like this for little mints at my wedding. Made them in 2 colours, and glued ribbon and little tiny fake roses on 'em, alternating the colours (purple box, blue ribbon, purple rose / blue box, purple ribbon, blue rose). They were pretty cute, I thought. If I thought I could dig up a pic of 'em (if they even exist), I'd post it. Would be a little scared if I have actual boxes still kicking around, but one never knows!

I've also made little boxes like this in 2 sizes, then wrapped them in Christmas paper, stacked them, tied them in ribbon and made itty bitty Christmas tags on them & use them as decoration for really small Christmas trees (like the little table ones). Could use them as decorations on a larger tree. Or put eensy weensy gifts in them. I can probably take a pic of those... will try to remember to do that.
