Origami Pentagonal Box Variations Tutorial

origami pentagonal box lid variations
Origami Egg Box! It opens... :)

These are the variations of the origami pentagonal box, you can make a geometric style box, a pointed gem shaped lid, or make two to get an egg or pill shaped origami box.

This origami pot starts off from the end of Origami 5 Sided Crown Box, click here to view that tutorial first.

The Tall Origami Pot that this lid can fit on, click here to watch the tutorial (start with 20 x 20 cm).

At around 3:48 you can see this could also be used as an egg cup, or to display other roundish objects.

This box reminds me a lot of the boxes from the ‘Lunch Box Tree’ in The Wizard of Oz movie from the 90s, especially you layer them…
