Hexagonal Origami Gift Box

So I made this origami gift box for a friend.  It is not a modular box, the box is made from one piece of paper, and so is the lid.  I don’t like modular boxes, they always end up messy.

    When will there be a tutorial up?

    1. I will put in on my list 🙂 meanwhile, there are video tutorials on youtube that have hexagonal but modular models, like the ones that are on my post. They are not the same, because they use more that one piece of paper.
