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.

A Photo Tutorial is available on the Origami Photo Tutorials page.
