How to Make an Origami Gift Box

This is a fun and relatively easy origami box project. I show you exactly how to make this box step by step and with a video. All you need to do this project is eight squares of paper. They can be almost any size and the three boxes in the picture below use four inch, five inch or six inch squares. If you never tried origami before this is a nice place to start. It is not very difficult and it comes out looking great.


I used paper that I purchased in Japan but you can use just about any paper including printer paper. Just cut yourself eight squares and make them as square as possible. It will make a difference in how easy it is to fold.

I have more Origami Projects, and I have a lot more coming. I have an Origami Home Page here so you can view the projects. On that Page I also have resources to buying books and paper and I have information and projects on the Japanese art of Tatebanko which is the art of paper dioramas. I also have a page of Origami Books and Papers.
