Box with a ribbon bow, constructed using a molecule of my Sunflower Tessellation and with color change added to make the ribbon stand out better from the background. A variant without color change is also possible, but less interesting.

While the general idea is simple, the collapse includes one sink which is really tough unless you find the proper way of executing it.

It is also possible to make a variant where the molecule and its outgoing pleats are parallel to the square’s diagonals rather than sides.
