This is a wonderful twist box designed by Anine Cleve Christensen.
What makes it so special? By twisting the lid, the box opens, revealing that box and lid are folded from a single sheet. When folded from duo paper the lid also has a different color than the box. Pretty awesome!

Good friends of ours are expecting their first baby. Knowing that it's hard to find just the right present (without giving something they possibly get from someone else) we figured it might be best to give them some money. So I started searching for a nice money fold - and found this one. Isn't it lovely?
It works with different currencies, as it doesn't depend on a specific aspect ratio of the starting sheet of paper. Anything somewhat close to 1 by 2 will do.
