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.
