This pretty origami pop-up envelope box is really great to use as an invitation with a note inside, or to give jewellery gifts!

I had the origami Chinese thread book in mind with this one, it would look very nice as the smaller opening envelopes inside.

This is a really pretty and unique origami envelope / box / pouch! It’s a variation of this traditional model.

Yes you’ll need to make 4 small snips using scissors.

If you only wanted to have this as a box, don’t make any of the diagonal folds at 4:35 in the video 🙂 You’d then need to shape the sides of the box after finishing the flaps.
