Origami Gem Box & Lid Tutorial (Revised) via @paper_kawaiiOrigami Gem Box & Lid Tutorial (Revised) via @paper_kawaii

A pretty gem shaped origami box and lid. This intermediate diamond shaped origami box is perfect for giving jewellery gifts!

This is a remake of this tutorial (also shows how to attach the lid to the box so that it becomes a hinged box).

I felt that this box deserved a re-visit. I wasn’t happy with the method I used at one point, only after diagramming this model did I notice a massive flaw in the previous method! The diagram for this box will be published in the next ‘issue’ of my Learnigami ebooks ♥︎

This is another masu box variation. There is something really appealing about this diamond shaped origami box.
You can find another two variations of this origami box, I will add a couple photos and links below this post.

You will need:

▸ 2 sheets of square paper.

You can start with the same sized paper, I show how to trim the paper for the lid to size at the time.

Or you can pre-cut your paper to the right size.

Examples:
20 x 20 cm & 14 x 14 cm
21 x 21 cm & 15 x 15 cm
30 x 30 cm & 21 x 21 cm

You can work it out yourself by dividing your larger paper by 1.42

Or multiply your smaller paper by 1.42
