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

This origami star box is a special one. The top has a four-pointed star shape and bottom has a square-shape which is closed. This is the reason why this box is called a closed star box.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami star box. It is a little 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 paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one. It is somewhat larger than a regular origami paper but it is good to deal with a larger paper initially and then gradually decrease the paper size as you become more familiar with it.
