David brill box and lid

Thank you, Sara. I tried to do this beautiful box before, based on the diagram, without success.
Your video is very well done and I finally managed to fold two boxes and I hope to improve as I fold many more.

Great to hear

Great to hear. Out of pure interest, which version of the diagrams did you try to follow? The one in "Brilliant Origami"?

Hey sara how long did it take

Hey sara how long did it take you to fold all those boxes and how many did you make?

I didn't time myself

Well, as I said in the video, I folded about 70+ boxes. I'm not sure how many hours it took. Many for sure. A rough estimate? Maybe something around 15 hours.
