8 Steps to make your own Origami Treat Box

Remember these yummy little things? And the box that they were wrapped in? With permission from Liz I am posting her fabulous tutorial on making a little paper treat box.

What you will need:

One square piece of paper. This is a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper (recommended).

Step 1: Find the center of the paper and fold all corners into the center. (If you fold the paper in half each direction and make a small crease in the center you will find the center pretty easily, as pictured).

Step 2: Fold two opposite sides into the center.

Step 3: Unfold the folds you make in step 2 and repeat with the two remaining sides.

Step 4: Unfold recent folds and unfold two opposite corners.

(and just to make it easier, refold the sides in)

Step 5: Fold corner (arrow #1) to center (arrow #2). Then repeat with other corner on the same side.

Step 6: Bring flap inside to create box side.

Step 7: Repeat with other side of the box.

Step 8: Fill up with goodies and share!
