Hexagonal Origami Box

Hexagonal Origami Box
A six-sided box, this design is from Origami Boxes by Tomoko Fuse. Each box requires 12 square pieces of paper, 6 for the bottom and 6 for the lid. I used 15cm x 15cm paper. Paper, washi chiyogami.

Six-petal pinwheel design on lid. Paper, saika chiyogami tsuru. No scissors, glue or tape used!

Hexagonal Origami Box Lid
Inside of lid. This type of folding is also known as unit or modular origami.

Like it says in the book "It's delicate work, so go slowly and patiently".
