Origami Box Lids


Models of this type are also automatically listed in: box, geometric, origami-first design, single-sheet

Origami boxes in this category are folded in such way that the lid is folded from a single sheet of paper, and the bottom part from a separate sheets. The lids are often decorated. In particular, I often use a box lid to test a tessellation molecule: such a model takes much less time to fold than a complete tessellation with many molecules but already gives an impression of what the molecule is like. Folding only a single molecule also makes it easier to create a clean fold.

This page lists folding instructions for models of a single type. You might be interested in the models themselves instead.
