Perfectly Mindful Origami – Origami Paper Boxes by Mark Bolitho is a 128 page paperback released April 19, 2018 from Publisher: Jacqui Small. Inside you will find over 25 origami box paper folding projects and 30 sheets of 7'' square origami paper. Each box design has a difficulty rating of easy, intermediate or more challenging – though most are intermediate. The paper comes in a colorful and attractive variety of solids and patterns. The larger 7'' size paper is a treat! Nearly all of the projects in the book suggest this size paper. The book is divided into 4 sections by box type – traditional, new, boxes with lids and modular designs. The box on the cover is an example of modular origami – where multiple pieces of paper are folded the same way and then attached to make a single unit. I warmed up by folding the Standing Box Two. Then I moved on to the Launce, Pinch and Nym folds. I found the diagram and text instructions very clear. My new favorite origami box is the Nym, shown below. The Perfectly Mindful Origami series also includes Origami Zodiac and The Origami Garden. There are many benefits to doing origami – including boosting mindfulness. Get your copy below!

This design is from the Modern Boxes section. It's called the Nym and has a difficulty rating of easy. I folded it with paper from the included pack. A single 7" square makes a 1 1/4'' x 2 1/2'' x 1 1/4'' rectangular box. It's the perfect size for a little something.
