Origami: The Masu box and it’s multiple posibilities

The Art of Paper Folding

Origami is an art, but it can also be useful. It is actually possible to make boxes by folding a piece of paper. Only paper is needed, no scissor, no glue.

The Masu box is probably one of my favorite model. I like when you have the possibility to customize your way. With the Masu model, you can decide whether you want to have a lid or a divided box.  It has a cube/rectangular shape, which make it very convenient to store. I like the size of it too.

 

It’s a nice and simple model to make. Any paper proportions can be used to create different size of boxes. To make the rectangle box, begin the first fold using the width instead of the height.
