Learn how to fold 3 types of the rectangular origami box divider. Make a divider with 4, 6 or 14 sections! No glue required.

This divider is designed to fit inside the Long Origami Tray that I previously posted. Click here to make that first.

I’ve been away, sorry it’s been such a long time since I posted a video. Hopefully I’m back… and can commit more time to this website, youtube and everything. Won’t go too much into why.. life, has just gotten in the way!!

I have a couple videos that need to be edited, this was one of those that was filmed a few months ago, and it was really hard to edit after having forgotten all the details like paper sizes and divisions!

The one that is 3 by 2, I have no idea how I came up with diving it by 3.33…. I’m actually not great at maths at all.

Anyway, hope you like the rectangular origami box divider, of course they can fit any size box – as long as it was folded in the same manner. Either way, once you get the hang of these, you can imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to make one that is a custom size.

And yeah I did glue the 14 section one inside the box in the end, because it kept springing up… maybe I’ll create one with a lid.

You will need:

  • 1 to 2 sheets of A4 paper

If using the tray:

  • (4 section and 6 section use same size paper as INNER box)
  • (14 section use same size paper as OUTER box)

Final model size: 19 x 10 .5 x 2.5 cm
Paper used: 21 x 29.7 cm

Note: If you want to make one for a specific box, all you’d need to do is take note of the width, length and height of the box, and with those numbers in mind, depending on which divider you want to make, for example for the 4 section one:
The arrangement of the sections is: \____/\____/ & \__/\__/ so you’d take the height 4 times, plus the width/length.

6 sections arrangement: ___/\___/\___ & \__/\__/
14 sections: (oh jeez)…… /\_/\_/\_/\_ & \__/\__/

If I get enough people ask, I will make more instructions for different kinds, or different dimensions, check out some of the previous dividers too, the one you want might already exist.
