Intro: Custom Origami Gift Box
How are you?
Today I will show you how to make a gift box with custom pattern and pictures
You don't need stickers or pencil drawing or writing. Just one sheet of paper and a printer (Color or black), it does not matter.
You can also check my Custom origami heart gift box here.
Step 1: Tools:
- Sheet of paper (A4 size).
- Pair of scissors.
- Glue (hot glue gun or any paper glue).
- Pc with MS office word. Printer (color or black)
Step 2: Take Mesures and Prepare the Template
To be able to print the pictures in the exact location, you need to fold the box first, then take the pencil and mark the borders like in the picture. Then unfold it, and measure the position with the ruler.
Try to position the pictures on sides, closer to the picture in the center.
Or you can download the Template and put your picture there easily.
Step 3: Print and Cut
Print the template on A4 paper size, and make a square of 21 x 21 cm.
Step 4: Folding Steps
Turn over the paper.
Mark the center of the edges by pinching the paper (yellow dots),
Or you can use the ruler to mark the center.
Use the center of the edges to fold the four corners (yellow dots) to the center of the paper and unfold.
Rotate the paper to get a diamond shape.
Fold down the top corner to the center using the previous crease.
Fold the lower corner (yellow dot to the top crease (red line).
Bring the right yellow line on top of the left yellow line by making a crease just along the green line
Repeat this step for the other 03 corners.
Make mountain creases between the yellow dots just along the red lines.
Try to form the box by following the creases.
Be patient and take your time.
Use the Hot Glue Gun or
any kind of paper glue to glue the four corners of the box..
(do not use super glue it makes a spots on the paper)
PLEASE, IF YOU ARE UNDER AGE, ASK YOUR PARENTS OR AN ADULT TO HELP YOU OR SUPERVISE WHEN USING THE HOT GLUE GUN, YOU MAY BURN YOUR FINGERS OR GET AN ELECTRIC SHOCK.
Or you can use any glue, and wait until it dries.
Step 10: Put the Gift and Close the Box
Put the gift inside, and try to close the box, by bringing the layers one over the other (just try to follow the lines).
Finally, just tuck the last layer inside, under the first one.
Step 11: Wish You Luck
Have a nice day.
