DIY TRIANGULAR ORIGAMI BOX.in craft, diy, origami
Good things come in small packages, or at least tiny triangular origami boxes anyway. Today I'm sharing how to make these simple pyramid style boxes. They're great for holding small sweets and would make fantastic wedding favours.
These boxes really are so simple to make. In fact I think they might be the easiest diy box I've shared so far. I first learned how to make them on the Mr Printables blog. I ended up making a whole bunch of these tiny origami boxes and stringing them up into a garland. This time I wanted to use them purely as boxes. I made them using the last of my Market Street double sided cardstock and filled them with some M&M's. Here's how I made them.
1. Cut your card or paper into strips. For the big pyramids I cut 2 x 12 inch strips and for the small pyramids I cut 1.5 inch x 12 inch strips. If you're a paper hoarder like me this is a great project for using up all those leftover paper scraps.
2. Fold a small triangle at one end of the strip.
3. Keep folding triangles back and forth to form an accordion.
4. Open the strip back out and refold along all the straight folds but this time in the opposite direction to make your paper strip curl around.
5. Roll your paper strip around to form the pyramid shape. It's going to look like 2 pyramids stuck together.
6. Keep wrapping until you're left with a square at the end of your pyramid. Cut away to leave a triangle shape.
7. Tuck the end in to finish your triangular origami box.
How cute are those gold foil polka dots? I'll definitely be picking more from this range again. I've got my eye on this kit next. Cute, right?
