Learn how to fold an easy origami masu box from one sheet of square paper. This method gives you the perfect origami box and saves time. Great for beginners.

I know there are plenty of origami masu box tutorials on the internet already, on my YouTube channel there is one already. But after making masu boxes over and over again for different projects, I think I have the method perfected – and I’m sure this particular folding sequence is favoured by a lot of people.

A tiny change at the start makes assembling the box so much simpler. A lot of tutorials have extra steps and more creases making the box less attractive.. including my old video on the box.

If you like masu boxes, I have a masu box playlist with lots of variations and options for lids.

If you want to make a lid, you can simply make another masu box, but this time, don’t fold the edges all the way to the center at 2:10 leave a gap of about 2mm on all edges. Your box will be a little bit wider.

Design: Traditional
Level: ★★☆☆☆

You will need:

▸ 1 sheet of square paper

Paper size example: 15 x 15 cm
Final model size: 5.3 x 5.3 cm

To get a box of a specific size, just triple the width.
For example, if you want a box that’s 10 x 10 cm, you’d need paper that’s 30 x 30 cm.
