I was actually aiming to make an origami house when I came up with this. It would make an awesome Christmas tree decoration too. Just add a ribbon to one end!

If you use textured paper and fold correctly, you don’t need any glue and it keeps together very well. There is another longer version of this box, tutorial here.

In geometry, the elongated triangular bipyramid (or dipyramid) is one of the Johnson solids, listed in 1966.

Level: ★★★☆☆

You will need:

– 3 sheets of square paper
ruler + pencil
glue (optional)

Size used: 20.9 x 20.9 cm
Final size of box: 14 x 7.5 cm ish

I would suggest using thicker paper for this one, or make a smaller one with thinner paper.
