Origami Long Tray Tutorial – Box With Handles

Origami Long Tray
Origami Long Tray

A long origami tray to keep pens, pencils or other items. This long origami box has handles on either side, easy to make, no glue required. This origami tray is a modification of my previous origami stacking box.

Hope you like this origami tray, it’s length makes it perfect for pens, pencils, stationery tools, makeup and brushes etc. I put the origami pot plants I previously made in one of them. It’s best to use thick paper or card. You can glue it if you are not a pure origami follower.

I used A4 paper but you can use US letter paper, square or 2:1 paper etc, you’ll just end up with a different sized tray. The design for this tray started life as an origami drawer, the handle for which sparked the inspiration for a number of origami models. You can have a look at the first time I folded this handle in this tall origami drawer from 2016.
