I have been making some origami boxes recently, they are so easy to make and really cute.
The boxes in the picture are made with patterned craft papers, but you could use whatever you have to hand: printer paper, magazine pages, wallpaper works well or you could even make a good use for all that junk mail we get!

While making one of the boxes I photographed each step, I have made these into a guide to share with you.

The boxes are excellent for jewellery, other small gifts or you could just make the base and put trinkets in it.
