Origami Long Gem Gift Box Tutorial

Origami Long Gem Gift Box Tutorial via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make a long origami gem box, this is like a crystal with two points. This a more advanced model, but not too hard. Makes a wonderful gift box.

Oh dear, people are starting to notice I only make boxes, so… I wonder what the next video will be. Maybe another gem kind of thing…

I came up with this box ages ago, back when I did the gem box and templates… just forgot about it.

Yes could you please post the diagrams for this? I really like this box, but I always do better with diagrams for some reason. Thanks in advance! 🙂
P.S. All your tutorials are so stinkin’ cool!!

I made the paper for the lid 3/4″ smaller as indicted but the lid came out about 1/4″ all around too big. In the last couple minutes of your video you kind of fell off the edge of the viewing area so it was hard to see what you were doing exactly but I figured you were folding the edges in all around to make a double thickness wall. I like all your box tutorials, especially the stacked horizontal drawers with the pull handles and the snail is my favorite animal one. Thanks for re-initiating my interest in origami!

Thanks Chrissy. I realized my mistake after watching the video the second time. I’ve made so many of these boxes, I’ve lost count!

I didn’t use this box for putting gems in, but I did use it for putting bracelets in.
It’s a beautiful box and I must thank you for all these clear beautiful and kawaii tutorials!
