Origami Heart Box Video Instructions via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make a pretty origami heart box. This origami box has a concealed lid, it would make the perfect gift box at Valentines or birthdays for a loved one.

Please follow the video instructions below. This model works best with thicker paper, but will still work nicely with regular weight paper.

Level: ★★★☆☆
Designer: Akiko Yamanashi has a very similar design.

You will need:

2 sheets of square paper.
Ruler + Pencil.

I am using 21 x 21 thin paper.

The small pink box was made with 10.5 x 10.5 cm and the first markings were 1.5 cm.
The medium sized one with mint and pink pattern was made from 15 x 15 cm and the first marks were at 2.5 cm.

It is 0.1666…. of the total length. So for a 14 cm square you would use
14 x 0.1666 = 2.3324

The markings are 1/6 of the full width of the paper, so 1.95 cm (you could round up to 2 cm so that you don’t have to deal with half-millimetres).

Hi! Really enjoyed your work, but was wondering if i could ask for the margin size for a 45×45 cm paper? 50cmx50cm?

For 12″ paper, should I use 5 cm as the mark? For the ~6″ paper you answered 2.5 cm so I am doubling

Hey Chrissy! I’m using 20 cm square paper, do you have any recommendations on where I should make the first marks? Thanks in advance, and keep up the great work!

You’re probably better than most teachers, Chrissy. Because you make difficult origami seem easy.

Just because the box may seem ‘similar’, does not mean that it is an exact copy. In fact, Chrissy’s design of the Origami Heart Box wasn’t even merely inspired by Akiko Yamanashi. At least Chrissy mentioned that Akiko Yamanashi’s Heart Box was very similiar, some people don’t even have the kindness to do that nowadays. I’m sorry if this reply may seem a little harsh but it is the basic truth. And Chrissy makes a good point, just because Akiko Yamanashi is a member of associations and societies, does not mean that she is the only person with ‘the right’ to teacher other people how to make things.~ Elisa.
