Also known as origami candy dish, this origami candy box is a great paper craft to store sweets or any small trinkets that you have. To make this paper box, use a sturdy piece of paper. It is optional to use a paper that has color on one side like the paper illustrated below. That way the instructions are a lot easier to follow. Now let’s get folding!
Difficulty Level: Intermediate
Get a square piece of origami paper. Face the colored side down and then fold the paper diagonally along the dashed lines. Crease the paper well and unfold.
The second step is to bring all the 4 corners of the square paper to the center. The center of the paper is where the diagonal crease lines intersect.
Fold the paper crosswise and lengthwise in half. Crease the paper well and unfold.
Flip the origami piece to the other side.
Diagonally fold the paper along the dashed lines.
Bring the top left and right corner downward to the bottom corner.
Pry open the outermost layer of the origami paper.
As you pry open the outermost layer, lift the bottom corner (yellow dot) upwards to the top.
Repeat step 7 and 8 to the back side of the origami paper.
Rotate the paper 180 degrees counter clockwise.
Make a crease mark along the dashed lines as shown in the illustration above.
Fold the top layer of the bottom corners up towards the crease made in step 11. Unfold the paper and then repeat the same step on the back side.
Using the crease marks as a guide, Fold the yellow dots upwards.
Like flipping a page from a book, turn the right outer flap to the left. Do the same at the back.
Fold the left and right side to the center. Crease well and unfold. Do the same on the back side of the paper.
Diagonally fold the inner corners upwards to the creases you just made. Do the same on the back side.
Fold the left and right side to the center again. Repeat the same on the back side.
Double fold the top corner of the front layer. Repeat the same on the back side.
Almost done! Gently pull apart the front and back sides.
Your origami candy box is done! Now you have your own candy dish where you can store some sweets.
