Origami Toolbox / Pen Pot Instructions

origami toolbox or pencil pot - tutorial #diy #origami #box #crafts

Learn how to make a useful origami toolbox shape with a divider in the center, this could be useful for storing pens, pencils, make a large one for cutlery, paint brushes, makeup brushes and other items. (Ok the cutlery is a bit of a stretch!)

After making the origami tall crown box this is what happened next. This is a variation of the traditional origami Masu box..

I know… ANOTHER BOX?! ? I am getting a little bit tired of the folds at the start, I have some more different (not boxes) tutorials coming up soon (… aaannd more boxes..)
