Origami House Box Tutorial - Cute Gift Box

Learn how to make an origami house box! This pretty house shaped box is a unique way to give a gift for any occasion. Or use as a little house for toys!

It would make a great ‘house warming’ gift box! 😉

You can make a divider for this origami house box, which makes it even more ‘housey’;  just use paper that’s about 1cm smaller than what you use for the box, and make this divider and fold two of the corners behind.

This completes my series of modified masu boxes (for now).

I think this origami house shaped box is a fusion of a masu box and an origami bell flower (well that’s my opinion 🤓).

I gave it 4 stars (intermediate – advanced) just because it’s a bit unforgiving. Take special care with this otherwise the lid will not fit!
