Tall Origami Drawers - Tutorial via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make some tall origami drawers. These cute little pull-out drawers can sit on your desk and the thin shape of the drawers makes them useful and unique. You can use them to organise business cards, post-it notes, makeup and jewellery!

Having the drawers vertical is better as you can grab things out instead of things being underneath each other. I would like some real drawers like these. 😀

If you like the paper used in the video (and photos) you can get it on amazon here.

I especially like the handles on these ones because they are quite sturdy. You can make the same handle for all of the drawers in my other origami drawers that I’ve posted. Watch the origami chest of drawers playlist to see the others.

If you give this a go, please let me know how it goes in the comments, you can even upload a photo there. Or tag me #paperkawaii on instagram so I can check it out. 💗

Tall Origami Drawers:


You will need:

– 2 or more sheets of square paper
I used 15 x 15 cm.

Use thicker paper for best result.

(If you’re using really thick paper, you may need to trim of about 0.5cm off from the paper used for the inner drawers.)

– Bit of glue.

Final size: using 15 x 15 cm each drawer will be 5.5 x 5.5 x 2.5 cm.
Using 21 x 21 cm, each drawer is 7.5 x 7.5 x 4 cm.
