Fujigami Candy Box

in Fuji Craft

A couple of weeks ago fellow blogger, friend, and crafty woman extraordinaire, Miss Lolly, posted a free download for paper that you can print out called “Ella.”
I instantly fell in love with the pattern and decided that I needed a little candy box to sit next to my computer so that I’d have instant access to chocolate while fulfilling my blogging “duties.”
I’ve since received a request for a tutorial showing how to fold this little box, and so here we go! I decided to try my hand at a video tutorial, since this is much easier than trying to describe how to do some of the folds (at least for me).
This box is easy and is great for holding little bits and bobs like chocolate (duh!), paperclips, or jewelry. The size of the box depends on the size of paper you use. The piece of paper I use in the video is 9.5-inches square, which yields a box with a base that is a little less than 3.5-inches square and a bit more than 1.5-inches high. Any origami paper will work, or any of Lolly’s free downloadable paper patterns (scroll down for the paper section) cut down to a square. You can also get creative and recycle junk mail or wrapping paper or anything else you can get your hands on that you can fold!

Way cute box, I love the name & color of the paper you chose. :-) Yes, a video was definitely needed in showing how to make the correct folds, good idea! Everyone needs a candy box!

This looks so easy and so fun! I am going to have to give it a go and send you a pic of my little chocolate box!

Thanks for sharing Fuji!
