Learn how to make a useful origami 2 tier box, this origami toolbox has a neat lift out tray. Great for keeping jewellery, makeup, stationary etc!
This box is like a toolbox that you can buy for sewing kits and other crafts like stamping, because it has the larger section underneath.
The top inner box is a nice tray with 2 sections which sits op top of the inner box. You can also use the origami tray instead, tutorial here (use same size paper). That one has the handle, therefore making it more of a ‘lift-out’ tray.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial, please let me know how you get on in the comments! I’d also love to know what you are storing in the box! ??

The box with 3 levels is made the same way. I made 1 inner box, 1 tray, 1 toolbox tray, the lid and the outer box is made the same way. The difference is that I used paper that was twice the size for the outer box and you fold the corners in using the inner boxes as a guide. I guess you can make boxes with any levels!
This big pink one is made with 30 x 30 cm thick paper, the top level is the origami toolbox tray.
