About This Class


Learn how to make these beautiful origami boxes. I'm usually using them for gifts - and people love them! 
They're made from 16 pieces (8 for the lid and 8 for the bottom) of square paper and can be made in any sizes; the smaller the paper, the smaller the box. 
This origami project is suitable for beginners.
