Origami Square Pyramid – House Lid

Origami Square Pyramid - House Lid via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make an origami square pyramid from a pentagon, use it as a lid to get an origami house box – or it could be the great pyramids of Giza.

The origami square pyramid is hollow on the underside, but has triangular flaps which can be wrapped around a box, making it look like a tent or house.

You can keep the flaps inside and set the pyramid on top of origami boxes for a clean looking house box.

You can also use a bit of glue to stick the flaps down inside.

I have seen origami house boxes that have a prism shaped lid, this one is a square pyramid instead. This is one way you can create an origami house box.

This origami pyramid came about while I was folding the Origami Star / Flower / Crown Bowl Tutorial.
