Origami Rectangle Box
A neat box is suitable for storing small items, especially those that usually lay around loose. Paper clips, small parts, flash drives, threads, and much more can be put in such a box. It can also be made from thick paper and used as a gift box. For starters, it’s worth practicing and doing it better on regular printer paper.
The wooden containers for measuring portions of rice, “Masu”, which were used extensively in Japan during feudal times, are reflected in various origami models of boxes. Paper products, of course, have a different function: they serve as packaging for small gifts, stationery, or sweets. However, the external resemblance to the wooden prototype remains.
On the basis of a square masu box, you can make several varieties – rectangular, triangular, and even a heart-shaped box. But below we are sharing with you one of the most universal diagrams — a rectangular origami box.
If necessary, straighten and press down with your fingers the folds where they are not well done.
Now, put the contents into the box to test its effectiveness. Even children can handle simple origami folding. Try it!
