Origami Chest of Drawers Tutorial

origami chest of drawers

Learn how to make a useful origami chest of drawers, make as many as you like & slot together. Great gift boxes for multiple gifts. This is an improvement on the last origami drawers that I posted a few years back.

Make some to keep jewellery, stationary and other items that need organising, I’m using mine to keep crystals in.

The previous pull out drawers end up pretty small compared to the paper you start with, with these ones you get a bigger result.

Also there are two different ways to finish off the handles of the drawers, both of which are nicer than the old ones too.

I have made an effort to make these origami chest of drawers cleaner and finish the handles off better even though you may want to add glue to make them extra sturdy.

Level: ★★★☆☆

Part 1 – Shelves

Part 2 – Drawers

You will need:

– 2 or more sheets of square paper, I used 15 x 15 cm
Use thicker paper for best result (If you’re using really thick paper, you may need to trim off about 0.5cm off from the paper used for the inner drawers).
– Bit of glue

Final size: Using 15 x 15 cm each drawer will be 5.5 x 5.5 x 2.5 cm. Using 21 x 21 cm, each drawer is 7.5 x 7.5 x 4 cm.
