Origami Christmas Cracker Video Tutorial via @paper_kawaii

How to fold a very pretty origami Christmas cracker gift box.

It opens nicely and you could use as actual crackers, or as gift wrap for small presents like jewellery! ♥︎

Once you get the hang of it, it doesn’t take too long, so create a very personal and handmade touch for the Christmas dinner table, and add little gifts that your family and friends would actually like to receive!

Use different coloured paper like I did, or for a more uniform look, use thick textured paper, or crisp white paper, music note paper, or metallic paper.

I am going to be putting some handmade keyrings, little paper hats and these terrible printout jokes by Three Little Monkey Studio. 🙂

What paper did you use, and what gifts did you put inside? Let me know in the comments!

Level: ★★★☆☆

This awesome box is made with one sheet of paper for both ends.

I have shown how to easily twist the box using a paper towel roll. 😐

You will need:

2 pieces of A4 paper or Letter paper.


A paper towel roll cut in half.

Or you could use 2 bottles, or some other cylindrical thing that will fit, these are only to help with the twisting, they aren’t going to be glued in or anything!
