Origami Box Tutorial by Athalour Origami Box Tutorial by Athalour
I learned to make these in primary school, and they've been a lifesaver ever since. I'm completely useless with wrapping paper, so often make these when I have odd-shaped gifts to wrap. :D They make great gift boxes, especially if you make them using nice card or scrapbook paper. :aww:

Share and enjoy!

Thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial. I was able to quickly make 12 of them and decorate them with stickers for a pot luck homecoming dinner in the morning (it's 2:30 am) I needed something to put the mints in on the tables and it was too late to go shopping. You are a life saver ;-) I shared your tutorial on my facebook page with 4870 friends ;-)

I just make a slightly bigger box for the top, and then nest the two together. :)

This tutorial rocks. I looked at a few other tutorial for Origami boxes and they made no sense to me... this is really well explained.
Much appreciate to your skill. :D

Congrats on your first box! :hug: I'm glad I could be a small part of the occasion. :D

Yeah, I'm afraid all that works with super glue is time... it'll wear off eventually ^^; Normal glue stick is easier with these, and works perfectly ;)
