A twisted round origami box or bowl, its rounded shape is very unique. Made from one sheet of square paper, no glue or cuts. You can display some lovely items in these origami pots.
After coming up with this twisted origami box – which I think also looks like a graduation hat… the origami stacking box was discovered.
I think it’s a pretty unusual shape, being round in the middle and square on the outside. I just made a very large one of these, it makes a great bowl actually. Perhaps wrapping paper would be a good paper choice too.
The only reason I added an extra star on it is because of the time taken, it’s not a difficult box to make.

You will need:
▸ 1 sheet of square paper. Paper size example: 17.5 x 17.5 cm
Final model size: 6.3 x 6.3 x 1.6 cm
3:40 part is pretty hard, i cant get past that stage any advice?
3:40 is folding each corner of the front layer to the middle, if you meant the part before that where you fold it all inwards to become what you see at 3:40, I can suggest to start again, use larger paper, try and hold the paper like in the video, you should be able to do if you give it another go 🙂
If you fold the corners down and shape them into “legs” as the second-to-last step (before forming the bowl) you get a really cool footed bowl that stands up sturdily! I made a bunch and dipped them in Polycrylic to make them water-resistant.
That is so cool! I haven’t tried it yet, but if you made a BIG one out of freezer paper you could put a little tub of salsa in the center & chips around the sides? Or veggies on the outside & hummus in the middle? It also looks like it would make a fun spinning top if you blew on it?
Hi Susan! Yes that would be a fun use for the box, it’s also been suggested to use it for olives, with little toothpicks (not sure the proper name) in the outer edges! Yes it does spin around quite nicely, but not for very long 🙂
