Origami Box with Bow – Tutorial

Origami Box with Bow - Tutorial via @paper_kawaii

Learn how to make an origami box with bow design on the lid.

The bottom of the box has flaps on each side, making it look as if the bow continues underneath.

This box was inspired by – but folded differently from – a box by Kamikey Origami, check out her youtube channel, she posts lots of super cute origami tutorials!

The bow part of the box is based on the technique thought up by Hyekyung Lee you can watch the original bow tutorial here

Level: ★★★☆☆

You will need:

· 2 square sheets of paper – My paper is 20 x 20 cm.

· Optional glue

You will want to use paper that has different colours on each side.

Final box size: 7 x 15cm (with the flaps)

Use 15 x 15 cm to achieve a box 5.5 x 12 cm which is cuter size!

Buy some double sided tape dispensers on Amazon
