Origami Angled Base Box / Pot Tutorial

Origami Angled Base Box

Learn how to fold a useful origami angled base box. The slant on the base of this box makes it resemble a plant or flower pot. You can also use this as a Masu box lid. This is the same model as the origami square gem box lid, this time the folding sequence has been improved.

I noticed it looks nice as a pot. Especially to use with the origami flower holder or to hold an origami cactus (in the photos above). If you want to use it as a lid for a masu box, use the same sized paper as you did for the origami masu box. You can get a diagram of this (and the cactus) in my shop, here.

A diagram of this angled base box is available in my shop as part of the origami cactus set. The set includes the box, insert, cactus and flower.
