Square & Shallow Origami Masu Box Tutorial

shallow masu box tutorial paper kawaii 01

In this tutorial I will show how to make a shallow origami box, it’s the same method as an origami Masu Box, except the sides are short, making it nice and wide.

Makes a great gift box! You can customise the size really easy.

Difficulty ★★☆☆☆

You will need:

Square paper, I used 21cm x 21cm

For the Lid, when folding at 1:50 fold about 1-2mm less.

Hi Chrissy
I need to make some shallow boxes and im a little stuck. The boxes need to be 6.5cm x 6.5cm x 2cm exactly…any idea on what size paper i need to be starting with and do i do the side fold to 2cm to get that size in the end?
