This box is decorated with Whirlwind molecule which can also be used for a tessellation. Its design is closely related to my Woven Triangles family, but I gave it a different name since all Woven Triangles variants are flat while this one is 3D and looks best with curved folds.

In the back-lit picture of the precreased sheet, you can clearly see that I made a mistake while precreasing. However, since the two misplaced creases fall inside a pleat, they are not visible at all in the finished model. Despite lots of practice, I do make mistakes while precreasing, but often they do not affect the finished model, or can be made to not affect it by modifying the folding process slightly.
