Origami Box-Tutorial

Wanna make simple Origami boxes with lids? Here’s how you can-

Stuff you’ll need:
  • A pair of Scissors( the smaller the better)
  • Glue ( Fevicol or any other white glue is good)
  • Square Sheets of Paper( I use two different colours)
  • Patience

NOTE: Keep some extra paper to use for decorating the box lids and to make a flat lining for the boxes.

How to make the boxes:

NOTE: Instructions are to make the lid, repeat steps with smaller paper to make the base.

  1. Collect your stuff and settle down at a table- use a flat surface for folding paper…I use a plastic chopping board…

    Step 1-Gather your stuff

  12. Your finished box should look something like this. Decorate it to your heart’s content- sequins/paint/thread/paper cutouts/ stones/ ribbon/block print on it- whatever you want!! This box is adaptable to any number of looks- you can make it formal as I have or make it casual by using magazine/newspaper pages.
