Square flowers boxes + spirals boxes, by Tomoko Fusè

Those are two similar models, found once again in “30 boîtes en origami” (page 48 for the flower box, 52 for the spiral).

They are made with 8 sheets of square paper, 4 for the bottom and 4 for the lid.

The left spiral box is made from Daiso Fabric paper 15 cm. The right box is made from Daiso Yuzen chiyogami paper Vegetation 15 cm.

The left box is made with star paper found on eBay, the right box is made from music sheets cut to 15 cm, found on amazon.

Details of the lid.

The flower boxes are made from: left, Jong le Nara pattern colored paper flowers for the bottom, Daiso handmade paper Sukigami for the lid, both 15 cm ; right, MarpaJansen glassine paper 10 cm ; middle, Grimmhobby washi chiyogami 7.5 cm (the box is tiny, very cute :)).

Pentagonal boxes by Tomoko Fusè

I already showed this beautiful box by Tomoko Fusè, but here is the variation I made, where the star is on the outside. No idea if this is published somewhere, since I don’t own the book with the model – but it’s really straightforward to find once you’ve folded the first model.

Papers: top, Origami Antistress by Marabout 15cm (beware, those 1000-sheets books don’t have perfectly square sheets and you usually have to cut them again, but I love the colors and patterns) ; bottom left, Origami black and white by Aitoh 7.5 cm ; middle, cheap shinny 5cm paper bought on ebay : right, Origami mini Pop 7.5 cm by Avenue Mandarine.

As I said before, if someone knows the references of the book, I’m interested :)

Edit: Internet’s magic is working ! Michel Grand just wrote to me to say the diagram is in “Origami Gift Boxes”, ISBN 9784140310687 (in japanese). Thank you :)
