How to Make Valentine’s Day Crafts : Folding the Base for an Origami Valentine’s Box


I’m just going to recap where we are. We’ve
taken our 11×11 piece of paper. We’ve scored it in half and we’ve gone ahead and folded
those. 5 1/2 and 5 1/2 and then we brought those 4 edges in. You have a little square
again with all 4 edges in. Now you’re going to take the edge that’s closest to you and
fold it up to that point. Again, you really need a bone folder to really get these edges
tight. Turn it around, do the same thing on the opposite side, and press it down. Fold
that down. Open it up and you’re going to do the same thing again going in the opposite
direction. I’m taking the edge closest to me, folding it towards the middle, pressing
it down using my bone folder, turning it all the way around again, the edge towards me,
fold it up, and press it down. That’s done. Now, you’re going to open the whole thing
back up again and you’ll have gazillion folds. That’s exactly where we want to be, because
now we’re going to assemble the box.
