Learn how to make a five sided origami crown shaped box or lid. This makes a great gift box, and is easier than most modular pentagonal origami boxes.

This 5 sided origami box is like the four sided origami crown box, this origami model is based upon the traditional origami bell flower method. Check out the 4 Sided Tall version or the 4 Sided Short version.

Also the variations of this box are pretty and cool, it can be like an openable egg, or a pointed lid. (pictured below the video) 🙂
