Origami Sushi Boxes Tutorial

Origami Sushi Boxes Tutorial

Make some yummy origami sushi boxes! These little boxes make a great gift box. Or use them just for decoration. You can make egg (tamago), shrimp sushi (ebi) and more!

It’s been quite a while since I posted an origami box tutorial! I took a break from them as it was becoming an obsession!

These little origami sushi boxes are kind of tricky, but nothing too ridiculous. If you pause the video and carefully follow along, you should be just fine.

The egg one is my favourite, which one do you like best? Leave me a comment to let me know! 🙂
