Origami Present Gift Box Tutorial

Origami Present Gift Box
Origami Present Gift Box

Make an origami present gift box that opens at the top. This origami box is made with one sheet of square paper, no glue or cutting is needed. Looks the same on both sides, give small gifts in them, without needing to wrap it.

These origami gift boxes are pretty easy to make, they’re sturdy and I really like how they have the ‘ribbon’ all the way around. I have used paper that has a white side and a coloured side. If you used paper with the same colour on both sides, there would be no contrast.

The plain coloured paper I used was cheap paper from Daiso. The pretty cherry blossom paper used for the larger one is actually wrapping paper, again from Daiso. It came in a pack with three little rolls. Wrapping paper might actually be the perfect paper to use for this origami present box.
Included at the start of the video are: Lucky StarsLucky HeartsMini Presents.
