Origami House Box Tutorial – Cute Gift Box

Origami House Box Tutorial - Cute Gift Box via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make an origami house box. This pretty house shaped box is a unique way to give a gift for any occasion. Or use as a little house for toys.

It would make a great ‘house warming’ gift box.

You can make a divider for this origami house box, which makes it even more house like;  just use paper that’s about 1cm smaller than what you use for the box, and make this divider and fold two of the corners behind.

I think this origami house shaped box is a fusion of a masu box and an origami bell flower. This is the last of the boxes made with this method. You can view the others at the end of the post.

I gave it 4 stars (intermediate to advanced) just because it’s a bit unforgiving. Take special care with this otherwise the lid will not fit.
