This origami video shows you how to make a “star box.” It’s a simple box with no lid, and is good for small things like paper clips, candies or gemstones like rubies, emeralds and even diamonds (just checking to see if you’re paying attention).

– 1 square sheet of paper
– In this video I use 150 x 150 mm origami paper (~ 6” x 6”). The final box has a base of 60 x 60 mm and a mouth of 40 x 40 mm
– dimensions will be roughly: base = .4 N; mouth = .27 N where “N” is the the original edge length of your square paper
