Learn how to make an origami cake slice box. The lid comes off the top – you could put real cake in there, add cute origami or papercraft decorations on top.
Quite a few people have suggested a cake themed origami, I had actually made this box last year, it was a carrot though.. so it’s now a cake slice!
It could also be a pizza 🍕, cheese 🧀, a tree 🌲, or other triangular shaped object 🍙🗻!
This origami cake slice box would be great as wedding favours, party favour boxes.. so many uses!
The lid is made from the same size as the bottom, with a layer in the middle holding it together as the ‘cake filling’.
You could also make the lid by using larger paper and it would just fit on top like a normal box.
You will need:
1 sheet of square paper for lid
1 sheet of square paper for the bottom.
I suggest using 15 x 15 cm
For the tutorial I used 20 x 20 cm
Cake ‘filling’: use A4 or letter paper / printer paper.
Optionally – Glue
📷 A Photo Tutorial is available for the taller cake box on the Origami Photo Tutorials page.
The kawaii ice-cream and cakes paper is just wrapping paper I found and cut to square.
