Origami Cake Slice Box Instructions via @paper_kawaii

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.

Level: ★★★☆☆
Designer: PaperKawaii

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


Puffy Heart, start with 5 x 5 cm.
Origami Icing , start with 5 x 5 ish.

📷 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.
