Simple Origami Patterns : How to Fold an Origami Box


You need a box and all you have is a piece
of paper? My name is Robert Segundo and today I’m to teach you how to make an origami box.
What we’re going to do is we’re going to start with a square piece of paper like I have here.
And as you can see I’ve already got this pretty creased so we can kind of speed through this.
Well what you’re going to do initially is you’re going to take your paper and you’re
going to fold it in half and then open it back up, fold it in half again like so. And
then open it back up. And what you’re going to do is you’re going to take your point corners
and you’re going to bring them into the cross that you’ve created here. Like so. You’re
going to do this on all four sides. Like so. Once you have your square shape what you’re
going to do is you’re going to just open two sides of it back up, then you’re going to
take your side pieces here, you’re going to fold them into the center like so. Apparently
my pre-crease wasn’t all that great. So we’re going to fold this side in as well, just right
up to it. Then what you’re going to is you’re going to take and fold along this crease here
that’s already been created from your diagonal folds, you’re going to take, crease it that
way holding it back up. Crease it back the other way as well, open it back up, same thing
with the other side. Like so. Lift it back up, what you’re going to do is you’re going
to kind of open synch it as you lift up, so what you’re going to do is you’re going to
hold these sides up, pull this up to this crease here like so. And then what you’re
going to do is you’re going to fold it back like that. Bring these flaps back like so.
Then just take your piece here and you’re just going to fold down on its own really,
like that. Fit right into place. You’ll do it with the other side. Fold up with the square
corner here, as you can see this one wants to form all by itself, hold it back like so.
Fold it down into your origami box. There it is. Have fun and enjoy.
