Honestly, I suck at origami. No matter how hard I try, I'm confused by it and sometimes get angry at the paper or whatever I'm working with. I will be the first to say that even though I find origami difficult, this is probably the easiest origami creation that you will ever make. I know, it sounds crazy, but this is very simple and fun. It's also great for organizing and things like that, so I hope you enjoy this!

Step 1: Materials
For this origami box, you will need...
•2 Sheets of Paper (1 if you don't want a lid)
•1 glue stick
You do not need a pencil. Sorry that I took the picture with the pencil in it. Oops!
Step 2: Get Your Paper
Choose what color you would like to use for the bottom part of your origami box.
Step 3: Fold
If you are not using origami paper or square paper, fold as shown. Then cut the excess paper off.
Step 4: Now You Have a Square
Step 5: Fold... a Lot
In the next few steps, you will be folding the paper and creating creases so that when you're actually making the box, it'll be very easy to fold.
Step 6: Fold Fold Fold
Step 7: Like a Quilt
When you're all done, your paper should look like this. Yes, I know that it looks like a quilt. Pretty neat, huh?
Step 8: Time to Cut
On my paper, I have drawn dotted lines so that you can see where we are going to cut. Keep in mind that this step is not at all necessary.
Step 9: Cutting
Cut as shown on two sides. Only two sides!
Step 10: Glueing
Now you can begin glueing! Follow the pictures for glueing, because I won't be able to explain very well=)
Step 13: Yay!
Yay, now you have a box! Well, half of it. Of you only want this portion of the box, then thanks for viewing! If not, keep on reading the steps...
Step 14: Time to Make Another Box
Now you have to make one more box, just repeating the same process as before. Make sure you use a square sheet of paper! Go ahead and make that box!
Step 15: Now You're Done!
Now you have (hopefully) successfully made this box! Sorry for the lack of clarification, but I hope that you made your own box=)
Step 16: Different Uses
These little boxes have tons of purposeful ways to be used:
•Loom Band Organizers
•Plain Old Boxes for Holding Things
•Anything You Make It Into!
Thank you so much for viewing and I hope you enjoyed it! =)
