Origami Lady Box Tutorial Paper Kawaii 04

This tutorial will show you how to fold the origami Lady Box designed by José Meeusen. This unique box is made from 1 sheet of square paper. It’s unique twisted frame makes this a lovely gift or ornament. I have actually never folded or come across any boxes similar to this before. Thanks to Jośe for granting me the permission to create a tutorial for her box.

The origami lady box has a really interesting twisted frame. The base of the box can also have little feet sticking out of tuck them under. I would love to purchase some special and large paper just to use to make this box.
If it wasn’t obvious at the end of the video (sorry) – you can tuck the final point under and call it a day, like I did. Or you can slot it in like the others, but I wasn’t willing to because I’m pretty sure my box would have been crumpled by my attempt.
