This flat rectangular shaped open box starts from 4x4 matrix base. The ratio among the width, the length, and the height of the rectangle is 4:6:1 . Two special folding techniques involved with this model are both 90 degrees mountain-fold and 90 degrees valley-fold.


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.
