Learn how to make a useful and cool origami accordion box – or roll up box. This origami gift box has 4 boxes which open up as you unwrap the box, or they can also be locked.
I think you’ll find it quite easy to make this roll up origami box, because it looks complicated but it’s not too tricky. 4 internal boxes are attached to a fifth sheet of paper to complete this gift box. It’s quite different from the other origami accordion boxes out there.
Choose to keep the boxes open, or have them closed, and also you can give them a cool little handle which you can pull to open them, which would be great for a gift box.
Also, the individual boxes are great little gift boxes.
For finishing off the origami accordion box, there are so many ways you could make the outer wrap.. the way I have done it may not be the best. Alternatively, fabric could be used to make it as well.
This model is featured in one of my origami ebooks:
LEARNIGAMI – Interlocking Origami Boxes E-book
Features over 20 origami diagrams. These origami boxes interlock, slot or fit together to become a larger piece. Each origami project is clearly diagrammed with annotations throughout.

Can you make a photo tutorial for this box? I feel the video goes too fast and I forget to pause it.
There is a diagram of this box in this e-book here: https://shop.paperkawaii.com/product/learnigami-interlocking-boxes-ebook/ so unfortunately I won’t be making a photo tutorial of it 🙂
do we have to make the four different kinds of boxes inside the roll up?
Mine. Didn’t work 😤😤😭😭
I am trying to make this rolled out boxes. But I can’t figure out how big the paper should be for making each individual box as big as 11cm x 8cm. Wonder if you can help me with this.
That size ratio isn’t possible with this method…
Hi I like it! ..But i have 1 question: it’s 15 cm or 17 cm for the box? On the video we can see 17 cm
Hi! Yes I used 17 cm in the tutorial only because it’s easier to see the larger paper. The dimensions have been made for 15 x 15 paper, but you can use larger paper for a larger result. You don’t really need to calculate the size of the larger sheet, you can just made 4 boxes and then see how big the paper needs to be to wrap around them 🙂
ohh ok thank you 🙂
Thank you for this tutorial! Here is the box I made today:
OMG! So cool!! I love it!
I’m glad you like it!
Very cool box design, I really like how it looks all rolled up.
