Origami Wrapped Lid & Box Tutorial – Non Modular

Origami Wrapped Box Lid Tutorial Paper Kawaii 02

A tutorial for a pretty wrapped lid/layered style origami lid to fit a Masu box. The lid is non-modular, made from 1 sheet of square paper. Great as a gift box. This lid looks like some of the modular origami lids, however it’s just one sheet. It looks like it’s a little dome shaped, so would look wonderful made with satin or textured paper.

The folding of the lid, might seem tricky at first. It was hard to show the process, when you are actually folding it, it’s not that hard. I think it’s an interesting design, it’s basically a Masu box folded back on itself. As pointed out by a commenter on youtube, you could hide a folded sheet of paper, a note inside the lid itself.
