Origami Pull Out Drawers Instructions

Origami Pull Out Drawers Instructions via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make some cool origami pull-out drawers. These origami drawers make great organisers, make lots and stack them up.

You can choose to have the drawers either tall or rotate the drawers for a horizontal cabinet.

These drawers use Masu boxes that slot together, it’s pretty easy.

I have used mine to store little camera cards in, I would like to make them with larger paper – I they’d make great storage drawers for little origami papers. 

I have also made a long flat version, which you can check out here.

My son wanted a tiny dresser for his Crayon’s house, and this worked perfectly! One suggestion: instead of gluing the drawer handles, after folding up the side to create the handle, I folded the edge of the triangle at the end of the flap, creating a diagonal flap. Then I tucked under the diagonal that is created inside the drawer when you fold up the side. It holds the handle in place perfectly!

What size would I need to start with to make them big enough for tea bags (the individually wrapped kind)? These are super cute and I want an adorable way to store tea bags to give as functional gift boxes (with a little bow around them)!
