This tutorial will teach you how to make an 8 sided octagonal origami gift box. Both the lid and box are made with 1 sheet of paper, no glue required.

This is the 8 sided version of the hexagonal origami box that I posted previously. This octagonal box is what I based the origami poke ball box on.

I made a lot more versions of the lid design but whilst experimenting, had ruined quite a few.. there are so many things you could do with it. I put a photo of the ones I like at the end of the video and a photo is also below.

If you enjoy this octagonal origami gift box, pleas let me know in the comments. I’d love to see which paper other people like to use for such boxes.

Level: ★★★☆☆

You will need:

  • 1 sheet of paper each for the box and lid

Paper used: A4 – 29.7 x 21 cm
Final model size: 8.5 x 8.5 x 3+ cm

If your paper is thick you’ll need to make the paper you use for the lower box a little shorter, 1 cm is what I took off. You can also just fold this over instead of cutting, which would actually make the raw edge of the side nice too.

The height of the box can be decided whilst folding.

You can buy the scoring tool I used, here.
Paper used: I haven’t been able to find it online, it’s described as ‘metallic pearlized embossed paper’.

    You can leave the inside octagon ‘undone’ or fold the outer triangles under to make it secure..

    You can make a shallow box and lid and then an inner box that is the same height as both of them together to get it like the one on the left.
