If you made the secret drawers you already know how to make these! The secret drawer box has four of these boxes.

The handle on these drawers makes the boxes sturdier. Using thicker paper is best so that it lasts a long time. Thin card can also be used.

Another thing about these handles – which have appeared on these drawers I created years ago – they can be put onto two sides of any box that is collapsed as a masu style box. You can see that in these stackable origami trays here.

Level: ★★★☆☆

You will need:

  • 2 sheets of square paper – you can use thin card as well.

Paper used: 21 x 21 cm
Final model size: 5 x 5 x 5 cm

The yellow and pink drawers are made from standard 80gsm printer style paper. The red and purple one is made from thick, metallic paper which is more like thin card.

I have made quite a number of different origami drawers, some of which are below. I also have an origami drawers category here.
