Hello and welcome to our Easy Origami Box video This box is a variation on the traditional box or masu. You’ll start with a piece of origami paper with the color side down.
The first step is to make a valley fold along the diagonal as we’re showing here. Make sure to crease the edges well. So unfold the paper, make another valley fold along the other diagonal, and again crease well. Now unfold the paper and take each of the four
corners and fold them towards the center. So here’s the first corner and now the second here’s the third and finally the fourth corner. This piece actually has a name, it’s an origami base known as the
Blintz base, B-L-I-N-T-Z. Now unfold the paper and you’ll take each of the four corners and fold them to the first crease line as shown here. Then once you’ve done that, fold over each of the edges at that first crease line. Now flip the paper over Now fold the top edge down to the center line and then the bottom edge to the center. Now unfold the last two folds, and we’re going to fold over the left and right edges to the center.
So left edge first and now the right edge. Next tape the top flap and fold it over to the left.
You’re going to fold over the two corners on the right side as shown here. And then take that flap and fold it back over to the right. And fold the left flap over as well. And we’ll repeat that diagonal fold with the two corners here Next you’re going to fold only the top flap over to the left. And now the fun part, we just have to unfold the box.
So get your fingers inside you’ll see it unfolds into a box. Straighten out the sides and crease the
corners. Just like that. One difference you’ll notice, here’s a
traditional Masu box the bottom of the easy origami box is white. There you have it Your Easy Origami Box. Enjoy!
