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 🙁
Sad me too
same comment.. its way to hard to follow esp at the corners. if possible put a pencil line clearly when you are folding for he corners. cute idea but not worth the time to try to follow your fingers esp when they obliterate the paper area you are pointing to. Try arrows
If you cannot complete it I am sorry to hear that. Perhaps you can give it another go. I noticed you also left another comment the other day saying you work best with diagrams. If that is so, perhaps you would like to check out the diagrams I have available here: https://shop.paperkawaii.com – I have a couple of pots there, not this specific one though.
