This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami star box. The origami star box is the classic origami model and it is based on square base. This star box can be used for a gift box for any special occasion. Making hundreds of them is not a problem since it is fairly easy to fold.


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.
