This tutorial will show you how to fold the origami ‘Lady Box’ designed by José Meeusen. This unique box is made from one 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 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! As it would make a wonderful piece to display on it’s own.

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.
