Free Printable – Origami Crystal Box + Tutorial

Here are 9 free printable origami gem boxes, they are a bit like pre creases, they’re pretty easy to fold and can be printed on plain old white printer paper.

I love how it looks like a crystal, would make perfect gift boxes and product packaging for jewellery shops.

Don’t have a printer or want to use your own paper, you can learn this model with regular origami paper by following this tutorial instead (includes a diagram).

To cut these out you could use scissors, but to get a perfect square, use a knife and cutting board, or my favourite is a safety paper trimmer.

The colours that your printer produces may be brighter or more subdued, to see what your printer will produce, you can print out the test sheet to save on ink, there is a link to download it with the rest of the PDFs.

As requested, I have added a black line version which is useful for those with limited printer ink. You can also print it on to your own colour or patterned paper.

Level: ★★★☆☆
Design: ©Paper Kawaii

You will need:

  • Square paper (printable paper below)
  • Optional: Glue.

OMG I love these!!! I am doing a Superman Wedding theme and was looking for diamond boxes for favors. I asked my niece who loves doing Origami to help me make them. I love homemade ideas. Great video. Thank you!!! I will come back and show you the results.

Thank you for the PDF. Also thank you for the formula, helped me a lot. I love your model. I am very keen on to use the Minc foil on paper. So i made a PDF for people that would like to test it. Here is the result. I made it in six different foils. Look at the picture.

Wow back. But your model gave me the idea. 🙂
Basically, it is a technique where you place a colored film on top of your laser printing. You then run the printing and foil together through a laminating machine. You pull the foil and left on it that you printed become the film of your choice.

Hi love this! I am ready to print this and try it to make little boxes as party favors. I just need a little help. I would like to use my own paper with white lines. If I am using my own colored paper (pink) which one do I use to make the box with white lines? I can not change the grayscale of the lines when I open the pdf. Is there another way? Thank you so much

Hello, may i know what size origami papers should I get? Seems like one is smaller and another is bigger. I would like to print it on pre-patterned origami paper 🙂

Hi! You could download the ‘white’ version which just has black lines, you can then get some patterned or colour paper, but it would have to be A4 or letter sized paper to fit your printer, you could print it on the back, or on the front. Otherwise check out the tutorial on how to make it without the template on any paper you like, the sizes are listed 🙂 https://www.paperkawaii.com/2015/05/26/origami-gem-box-lid-tutorial-diagram/

Hi! Thanks for your lovely comment!! I didn’t know that there was any printers that printed white ink? Please let me know if there is, I will make a white version, otherwise, there is a ‘white’ version which has black lines, to print onto coloured paper 🙂

Hi, it looks awesome I will try it soon, but just one quick suggestion, maybe it could be useful if there will be for downloading with white background and little gray lines to be able to save ink and just print lines on colour paper
