1 piece box & lid
Your idea of displaying the lines for each fold is AMAZING!

Box and Lid
Can you put a ring in the box.
Submitted by Sara on 29 August 2010 - 10:02pm Permalink
You can put anything in the box you like. I'd probably add some cotton or silk as a bedding.

hey sara just wanted to let ya know that i finally made my first origami creation!!! its a double lily! with one petal conjoing them both! and then i realized that there was a tiny hole on the bottom of it. i blowed on it. POOF! its inflateable! i was trying to make a sea turle but i couldnt get step 5 so i just folded it so there was square by opening it out. then i somehow got two square bases on both sides i then proceeded to fold the lily. its sooo super cool!!!!! im tryin to post a picture of it somehow somewhere. but thanks this site really got me motivated to origami!

22 minutes of happy folding :)
I really enjoyed folding this model, I did struggle a little with the pre-crease you forgot to do at the beginning, and had to unfold everything! Then I didn't quite get which direction the final hinge fold was supposed to go, but all this just made me feel I had learned and accomplished something in the end. TY.

Would an ipod nano fit into this box well?
Submitted by Sara on 21 October 2010 - 6:23am Permalink
If you choose the right sized paper, yes
You can decide which size you want the box to be. Then take the width times 5 - and you've got the required side length of the square to start with.

What paper did you use to
What paper did you use to make the small box that sparkly one?
Submitted by Sara on 2 January 2011 - 1:49pm Permalink
Sometimes, at conventions, we do suprise paper exchanges. You give in several sheets of paper, it's split into several packs, and everyone gets one of those packs of mixed paper samples. That sparkly paper was part of such a surprise pack, so I fear I can't give much info on what it is exactly and where to get it.

What's the point of english subtitles if you're speaking in english already?
Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 30 December 2011 - 5:52am Permalink
For people who are hard of
For people who are hard of hearing or cannot hear. That's what subtitles are generally for when audio is spoken in your native language. When you turn on the subtitles for your TV, do you also complain that they are speaking the same language? It's the same concept - Closed Captioning.

Ever occur to you that English-speaking deaf people fold, too? (We CAN read, lol)
Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 27 July 2012 - 9:01pm Permalink
I look at my laptop in the same room as my family and they get annoyed if I have the sound on when I am trying to work something out hence english subtitles are helpful even though I can hear.

My roommate needed a box to hold his fiancee's engagement ring. I made this ring box for him, and he ended up using it to propose! Thanks for your detailed instructions and great video.
Oh, and she said yes!

can't get it
try as i might (3rd or 4th attempt now) i can't get this, i got further this try, but that crease you forgot at 13 mins has confused me and i've lost it again. any chance of a diagram? i work better off diagrams, i've paused and gone back so many times, i think i've been trying to do it for about 45 mins now and given up as i need to go and cook. i might try again tomorrow.

sorry i wanted to ask some thing thats not related to this video can u make a tutorial on how to make origami paper but not with things like wallpaper glue or things like that is there a simple way to make origami paper with notebook paper so that the origami paper has no lines thx

How to make Ori paper from Notebook Pages
You'll need 2 pieces of paper. Lay one down vertically (as if you were going to write on it) and put the other one on top horizontally (The lines should go up and down.). Now align them so the bottom and right edges of both papers are flush with each other. Trace the top edge of the paper on top and cut on that line. Hope this helps!

adding things makes it easier to close
i noticed that if you add things that touch the top and bottom of the box will make it easier to close.

Doesn't close properly
I've tried to make this beautiful box, but even though it turned out fine, it seems to not close properly.
It stays open.
Did I do something wrong?

...I am usually good at origami. I've made complicated things before with no problem. But this video is just confusing. I managed to keep up with it anyway until the part where its the first part of folding the box. I folded everything exactly as the video instructed up to that point, so there's no reason my folds would be in the wrong place or anything. Is there a diagram somewhere? That would make more sense...

So impressive!!! Sara, you did a masterful job of making the process clear and if not easy, at least understandable. I really don't understand the whiners who couldn't follow you or were bothered by "making it pretty". What's the point if you don't do a beautiful finished product. Really well done. Many thanks!
