Follow the instructions below to make this Origami Box Lid
Did you already make the origami box? If not, go make one now because you’ll need a box in order to use the lid. If you already have the box, then jump right into Step 1 and start the folding fun.
The origami box lid is just as easy as the box. In fact, it has almost the exact same steps except for some tweaks here and there. If you were able to succesfully fold the box, then you should be able to fold the lid.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half from top edge to bottom edge, then unfold.
Step 3: Fold in half again from left to right, then unfold.
Step 4: Fold all four corners to the center.
Step 5: Rotate the paper so it becomes a square.
Step 6: Fold the top and bottom edge toward the center, BUT leave a gap so the edges do NOT touch the center. Unfold after you’re done.
Step 7: Unfold the top and bottom triangles.
Step 8: Fold the left and right edges toward the center, BUT leave a gap so the edges do NOT touch the center.
Step 9: Lift the top part to make it stand up at the crease like in the picture.
Step 10: While holding the top part with one hand, open the left side with the other hand to form one corner of the lid.
Step 11: Do the same to the right corner.
Step 12: Form the two lower corners of the lid also.
Step 13: Fold the top flap down into the lid.
Step 14: Now fold the lower flap down into the lid. Proceed to cover your box with this lid!
