Tutorial: Origami Box


Hi all! Some of you asked for a tutorial on how to make the origami box in my last entry. Here it is!

You will need:

- 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ piece of patterned paper (this will be the top of the box)

- 11″ x 11″ piece of patterned paper (the bottom of the box)

- 2″ x 11″ piece of card stock (scored at 1-1/4″, 3-5/16″, 7-1/2″, and 9-5/8″

- 2 pieces of ribbon cut to approx. 12″

And on to the instructions:

  5. This was an excellent video. You’re very dedicated to your work Kristina! Thank you. I love to see the next card on You Tube. Question? What do you do with all of the lovely cards that you make?

  6. Kristina, I made one of those boxes and I had the same problem that someone else mentioned, my lid goes all the way down to the table and completely covers the bottom of the box! I love how on your boxes you can see a little bit of the bottom, so I was wondering how come mine go all the way down?

  7. Thanks for this. It is great that you share your ideas for all to see, we all appreciate your efforts.

  11. Hi Kristina…

    I just watched your video courtesy of a link from PTI. Thank you for showing such a simple way to make something so adorable. I have the same question as one posted earlier – my lid goes all the way down over the bottom, so I’m wondering how you get yours to stand up taller?

    Thanks again for sharing your wonderful ideas. I just discovered your blog and am looking forward to lots of inspiration.
