Tapered Origami Box / Origami Plant Pot Tutorial

Tapered Origami Box / Origami Plant Pot Tutorial via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to fold two different versions of this Tapered Origami Box. The 1st is plain on the inside & outside, the 2nd looks more like a plant or flower pot, with the inner colour folding over the top.

I hope you like these origami boxes, their openings are much wider than the base. I couldn’t think of an interesting name for them, we know them as “tapered”. Actually I couldn’t find a proper name anywhere.

These boxes are based on the folds from the gem boxes I posted here.

i was able to make it, after a lot of trial and error. it’s a cute idea, but i find that the instructions are quite tricky to follow… i slowed the playback speed to try to help, but the instructions still aren’t very clear. just some tips, no hate 🙂
overall my pot turned out pretty cute. not sure if i’m gonna attempt it again tho 😅😆

This is such a good tutorial and a good idea! Although it took some time, I got it first try 🙂 Very cute pot that I plan to fill with paper flours.

It’s cute, but sadly, I wasn’t able to make it…so I had to put the cactus in a regular box instead 🙁
