Origami Box

Print this PDF file as 2-sided, flip on the long edge for a self-teaching origami activity.

Instructions are numbered and color coded and should appear as you are ready for the next step.

When finished, you should have a five-sided paper box handy for holding dry snacks while traveling, recyclable scraps while crafting, or small items while sorting.

Unlike traditional origami that uses a square sheet of paper, this design needs a rectangle sheet, as the extra section creates the flap that keeps the corner triangles in place.
