Video Tutorial: Origami collapsing box

2015-02-24T23:42:23-05:00Tutorials, Videos|2 Comments

In honor of Uncle Lester. This origami box was in a book that Lester gave my dad. My sister and I loved the book when we were kids and had to be very respectful and careful with it. This is the first origami project that I memorized. The thing I love about this box is that it starts with a rectangle and not a square. Which means you can make it with a piece of typing paper (or bright pink construction paper). Which is a very cool thing when you don’t have much allowance money to spend on fancy origami paper. (Leo makes a brief appearance and comment).

    Squeak to Leo, too! Neat tutorial – I had to make my own box right away! Must show Thomas – might inspire him to make some tutorials of his own. Again thanks to Great Uncle Lester!
