How to Make – Origami Boxes

  • Cut 2 squares rom old greeting cards with the picture 1cm larger than the back. On the reverse of each square draw diagonal lines as shown.
  • Fold the four points to the centre, then open flat.
  • Fold the point nearest to you to the centre point of the fold to the rear.
  • Repeat with all 4 corners.
  • You should now have 2 fold lines on each of the four sides.
  • Fold two opposing corners to the centre, creasing firmly.
  • Now fold the creased edge to the centre.
  • Open the card and turn over. Cut down to the centre square on two sides. (It is easier to see the fold lines from the picture side.)
