Origami Box with Lid + Ring Gift

Learn how to make the box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh4hj_HL-ws

This is a super cool model by Teruyo Koyano.

This is an advanced model, so it was tricky for me to make it the first time, and making it whilst trying to keep the folding at the camera was hard, so sorry if my hand got in the way a lot.

I think anyone can do it, it would make a lovely gift for Valentines Day..!

You will need:

For the box:
1 square piece of paper.
I used: 29.7cm x 29.7cm

Finished size: 7.5 x 3.8 cm

Ring insert:
Cutting Tools

For a more ‘real’ size box, use about 20 x 20 cm or less!

DESIGNED BY Teruyo Koyano

    May I ask what size piece of paper did u use for the box the ring holder in the box and the size paper for the ring? Thank you!

    1. I think I used 6 x 6 inch paper for the box, 3 x 3 inch for the insert, and 1 1/2 x 6 inch for the ring.

      You can use a bigger size, just make sure that it is square, and the insert is always 1/2 x 1/2 of what you used for the box and the ring is always 1/4 x 100% of the size used for the box.

      Make sure you have annotations turned on while you watch the video, I describe a lot about what is going on! 🙂
