This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a closed rectangular origami box.


This closed rectangular box starts from a 4 x 4 matrix box. The ratio among width, height, and length of the rectangle is 1:1:2 . One special folding technique involved with this model is inserting a flap into a pocket.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami box.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami box (*it is easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color).

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The size of the paper is 15cm x 15cm.
