Origami Pencil Pot Tutorial – Marc Vigo

Origami Pencil Pot Tutorial - Marc Vigo via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make a useful origami pencil pot. This double origami box is designed by Marc Vigo & is made from 1 sheet of rectangular paper.

This is such an interesting origami box. You can customise the heights of the boxes, meaning you can make one side a lot taller than the other, or make them the same size. The closing of this origami pencil pot can be a bit fiddly, a couple of other videos closed a different way. You could just glue it there if yours is not behaving.

I hope you guys enjoy making this useful origami box, it has lots of different uses. Make the pots the same height and use it to divide pens, pencils, makeup brushes. To make the box sturdier and less likely to fall over you can weigh it down with something heavy or stick it to a cardboard base.

The bows: attached to the box in the photo and the one at the start of the video.

Wow! This is just so amazing! The end product is also sturdier than I expected ( I put 30 Sharpies in mine and it holds perfectly!!)

Chrissy, I just joined your newsletter, and find your stuff simple but amazing. I try my hand at origami whenever I have time and simply love this art! I usually don’t have time to search for simple designs…
Following you has solved that for me 🙂 Thank you
