Tsuzura Origami Box

Origami Boxes
One of my favorite boxes. The design is from Origami Boxes, by Tomoko Fuse. Four square sheets of paper are required to make it, two for the top and two for the bottom. I used 15cm x 15cm chiyogami leaves, rice paper and chiyogami plum blossoms papers. The finished measurements are approximately 6cm x 6cm x 6cm. With a treat inside, this little box makes the perfect gift. This type of folding is also known as unit or modular origami. No scissors, glue or tape used!
