Learn how to make an easy origami candy box from 1 sheet of square paper, and you can also make a little box to fit inside! This is a really fun and cute origami sweet, I hope you like it!

This origami candy/sweet shaped box is a lot simpler to make then the previous candy boxes I’ve posted.

Whilst folding the traditional origami jumping frog, I noticed a candy shape if you pull the sides, the triangles on each side, are reverse ‘waterbomb base’ shapes.

This one is lacking the locking effect that is used in Makoto Yamaguchi’s version, maybe he started with this first whilst he was designing it!

You could keep this box a square shape, but I prefer a more rounded candy look.

If you like the square version and want to add a little masu box inside, the candy will keep it’s shape better.

The box I make for the inside is a variation of a traditional origami box.

Design: PaperKawaii
Level: ★★☆☆☆


You will need:

– 1 sheet of square paper
I used 15 x 15 cm

Inner box: 11 x 11 cm paper (if your paper is thick, make it 10.8cm)

Other sizes:
candy: 30 x 30 cm & inner box: 21 x 21 cm
candy: 21 x 21 cm & inner box: 15 x 15 cm
candy: 20 x 20 cm & inner box: 15 x 15 cm
candy: 10 x 10 cm & inner box: 7.5 x 7.5 cm
candy: 7.5 x 7.5 cm & inner box: 5.5 x 5.5 cm

To work it out, take the size of the big paper (20) and divide ➗ by 1.36. (20 ➗1.36= 14.7 round up to 15) 🙂
