Make a super cool and useful tower of origami drawers! No glue or cuts are required for this origami drawer box that can have as many levels as you like. Use as a gift box or keep your special items inside.
Another origami secret box! – if you make this box – please tag me on instagram with #paperkawaii – I’d love to see them.
These origami drawers use the same method as the Origami Secret Drawer Box. This time, I’ll show how to make the connectors between the levels and also a couple of handle variations which you can use for the single drawer box if you like!
The box in the video has 12 boxes in total but you could make an 8 box tower or even 16, 20 or 24 etc!
Use thick paper for this, if you have some. I know this box would take some time to make, I made all of the boxes for this in an evening. But it’s a super nice box and if you use good quality paper, it will last a long time too!
Next on my list is one made from 30 x 30 cm thick paper, which would make each drawer about 7 x 7 cm.
The handle design has been used in my previous drawers, you can view most of them here.
I created a diagram for this origami box, it’s available to download here.
