Step 1:

You will need 6 origami sheets. I used 17 cm x 17 cm origami sheets.

1


Step 2:

Take one piece of paper and fold it in half.

1-1


Step 3:

Unfold the piece of paper.

Then, fold each edge to the middle where the fold mark is from the second step.

2


Step 4:

Turn the piece of paper over so that the paper flaps are face down on the table.

Then, fold one corner up to the opposite edge.

3-1


Step 5:

Repeat the process with the opposite end.

4-1


Step 6:

You will now need to do the same thing with the current corners.

This is a tricky step to explain. If your piece of paper doesn’t look like the picture below, watch the video again and this may help!

Step 7:

You are done!

One anyway…repeat the process with the other five pieces of origami paper.

You will become a pro at it in no time!

Step 8:

Now comes the fun part! You need to put each of the pieces together just like a jigsaw puzzle.

This can be a bit tricky. Start with two pieces.

Put one corner of one piece into the square part of another piece.

7


Step 9:

Grab another piece and repeat step 8.

It will start to become evident how it all slots together.

The picture below shows how one side of the box will look.

9

Don’t let any of the square parts of each side overlap the corner parts of the other pieces.

10

All done!!!

If I can do it…anyone can do it. Enjoy!

Is it possible for this to be made into a PowerPoint? Sometimes at our school it takes a really long time to load sites from the internet.
